Women's Rugby World Cup

The Women's Rugby World Cup is one of the most important and premier international competition in rugby union for women.

The tournament of rugby world cup is organized by the sport's governing body the International Rugby Board (IRB). The championships are presently held every four years with the next event scheduled to take place in England in 2010. The 2010 Women's Rugby World Cup will be the sixth edition of the Women's Rugby World Cup and is to be held in England. The tournament will again be organized by the International Rugby Board (IRB) as opposed to the host union, and will include five matches for all teams to be played on August 20, 24, 28, September 1 and 5.

The Women's Rugby World Cup in England will provide a dedicated platform to build on the phenomenal current growth in the Women's Game worldwide over the last four years.

The legacy from this tournament will be massive for the women's game, with the profile of the sport and its ability to attract significant television audiences, sponsors, fans and new participants all taken to a new level. The tender process for Women's Rugby World Cup 2014 is nearing its completion with Kazakhstan, New Zealand, Samoa and the USA looking to host the Tournament. The IRB Council will select the Host Union at its May meeting, ensuring that the future host will be fully integrated into a dedicated observer program this year.
