WXV 1 2023 Competition

20th October - 4th November Wellington, Dunedin and Auckland

The WXV 1 tournament is a prestigious and thrilling international rugby competition that showcases the skills and athleticism of female rugby players from around the world. Held on a quadrennial basis, this tournament brings together the top teams in women's rugby to compete for the coveted title. The event not only promotes the growth and development of women's rugby but also serves as a platform for advocating gender equality and empowering women in sports. With fierce tackles, brilliant tries, and intense rivalries, the WXV 1 tournament captivates fans and inspires aspiring female athletes worldwide.

In 2023 New Zealand will host the top tier of this inaugural high stakes tournament, WXV 1, in October and November with teams from England, France, Wales, who have qualified through Europes's Womens Six Nations Championship, and New Zealand Canada and Australia who came out as the top three sides from the World Rugby Pacific Four Series.

These elite teams will battle it out on the field in a cross-pool format competition, displaying exceptional teamwork, strategy, and individual brilliance. Nations with a strong rugby tradition, such as New Zealand, England, and France often dominate the competition, but emerging teams from other regions have been making significant strides, adding an element of unpredictability to the tournament. The WXV 1 tournament not only showcases top-tier rugby but also fosters a sense of camaraderie and sportsmanship among players and fans alike. As the event continues to gain prominence and global attention, it plays a crucial role in driving the progress of women's rugby and inspiring the next generation of female athletes to pursue their sporting dreams.

The world's top six international women's rugby teams will play nine Tests during the tournament from 20 October to 4 November, over three weekends in Wellington, Dunedin and Auckland with each match weekend venue hosting a standalone Friday night Test followed by a Saturday double-header.
