(Final date TBC) DSLondon: Rugby World Cup Retrospective

November 14 @ 5:30 pm - 9:30 pm

The Rugby World Cup is the biggest set-piece event of the autumn. Taking place in Japan just months before the Olympic Games in Tokyo next summer, this is a huge opportunity for the sport to hammer home its growing popularity in Asian markets.

It’s also a time of excitement and potentially change to the structure of rugby. A shake up to the calendar could be in the offing, and the arrival of a World League could see the yearly tests between the northern and southern hemisphere rivals become part of a wider tournament.

After what could turn out to be a crucial World Cup, we’ll be asking where rugby goes from here. How does the sport ensure that it uses this springboard to build in new markets? How does it incorporate digital media and foster better collaboration between unions? And what will the rise of Sevens mean for the sport?
