World Rugby and hosts New Zealand Rugby (NZR) are delighted to unveil the official hospitality packages for Eden Park.
Eden Park, a venue steeped in Rugby World Cup history having hosted the men's final in 1987 and the opening match and the final in 2011, will break new ground as the host of the women's edition of a Rugby World Cup for the first time. Eden Park will host three matches on the opening day, including New Zealand's first encounter, as well as hosting the semi-finals and the final. Rugby World Cup 2021 Tournament Director Michelle Hooper said it would be extra special for fans and the teams involved to have matches at Eden Park on the opening day.
“Eden Park holds a special place in rugby history, not just in New Zealand but around the world. Players from across the globe aspire to play there and fans want to witness a match there. It will set the scene for what will be an exciting event for rugby.”
Hooper said while the one year to go milestone marked the beginning of the official countdown, extensive work had been going on behind the scenes to ensure the tournament would showcase the best rugby in the world.
“Despite the challenges being faced by the global pandemic, the organising team are focused, on track and determined to deliver a once-in-a-lifetime Rugby World Cup. Rugby is at the heart of New Zealand communities and the opportunity to ‘supercharge' the women's game will inspire a generation of young people to strive to achieve their goals.”
