Teams

20 teams have been placed in different pools. These 20 teams will qualify to the next round on the merit of top pool finishers. The last finishers of each pool will have to cut their hopes short.

Among these 20 teams, New Zealand has the highest odds of winning the tournament. While it is also ranked as the best team by world rugby ranking, it actually has an excellent squad.

Date and venue

This much-awaited event will start from 20th of September this year and is expected to last for six weeks. While there are 20 teams to participate in this tournament, it implies that there will be many matches and a single stadium will not sustain the tournament. So, there will be a need for more venues and it is official that it will take place in 12 different venues across Japan. In the 12 venues, Yokahama international stadium is the largest.

If you are looking for where to watch the tournament, then check the channels, ESPN for South America, TVNZ for New Zealand, NBC sport for USA and Eir sport for Ireland.  These are some of the channels.
