England, the birthplace of Rugby, is welcoming nineteen teams from around the world. Those teams which win in the qualifying pool stages move on to the knock-out games, with the triumphant side claiming the William Webb Ellis Cup at the final match on Saturday 31 October.

High Commissioner Victoria Dean said: “As a passionate Rugby supporter, I am thrilled to showcase the skills of young players who are getting into Rugby. As they grow in the sport, they will learn the character-building Rugby values of Passion, Solidarity, Discipline and Respect. The Rugby World Cup in 2015 is bringing the game back to its birthplace, to the delight of the home nation supporters and all other Rugby playing countries.”
