Rugby World Cup is the third biggest and most watched team sport competition in the world behind FIFA World Cup and Cricket World Cup. 2015 edition of Rugby Union world cup will take place in England/Wales starting from 18th september 2015 and TV broadcasting rights in all participating countries has been announced while the full list of channels which will broadcast RWC2015 in different parts of the world can be found in our RWC 2015 tv channels page.
Rugby world cup 2015 will be the biggest in terms of revenue for IRB, around £400 million is expected in total revenue which is 25% more than what rwc2011 in new zealand generated. While the a record attendance is also expected with all big games already sold out and IRB are predicted a record total attendance during 2015 world cup of around 2.3 million. So going with the general consensus this rugby world cup will be massive in every scale, from extensive tv coverage around the world to ticket sales everything seems large this time around. So what if you dont have access to channels broadcasting the match live on tv ? or you live in part of the world where RWC has no coverage ?.
