In contact with the organizers for several months, the chancellor acknowledges his strong belief in the reception of the competition. “We are in a good position,” said the mayor of Eswar, whose city already hosted the U-21 Rugby Union World Cup in 2006.

Outside of Auvergne, all the originality of the French bid for the 2025 World Cup lies in this priority given to cities with fewer than 100,000 inhabitants. “The event will take place in the heart of our land. It is the DNA of the project that will be deployed in many medium-sized municipalities. In general, these areas do not receive major sporting events,” French rugby union president Luc Lacoste outlined in Tuesday’s announcement.

Reply at the end of the year

In addition to the 40 cities that will host the matches, other cities will be able to receive delegations and serve as base camps. So it is not forbidden to see other regional cities affected by the event. If the participation of Paris, the capital, and Perpignan, stronghold of Catalan dragons, pioneering 13th century France are confirmed, the other selected host cities will not be known until the official announcement scheduled for the end of 2022.

Initially scheduled in the United States and Canada but postponed for financial reasons, the 17th edition of the World Rugby League will be the third to be staged in France only. France had already organized the World Cup in 1954 and then in 1972, before hosting them in 2000 and 2013 with the United Kingdom and Ireland. The Blues have never won the tournament, reaching the final in 1954 and 1968. Two-time champions Australia have won the competition 11 times. The 2021 edition, postponed by one year due to the pandemic, is scheduled in England from October 15 to November 19.
