London is set to host 17 of the rugby world cup’s 48 matches during the 2015 tournament, with the Olympic Stadium set to be used as a host venue, too.

Thirteen venues across the UK are being used to host the matches for the comp, with sixteen of these matches held in London, five of these games at the Olympic Stadium.

Twickenham and Wembley will hold the other 11 London-based games.

Cardiff’s Millenium stadium is hosting eight games, too, with the remaining 23 shared out at venues including Manchester’s Etihad Stadium, Newcastle’s St James Park, Leeds’ Elland Road, Birmingham’s Villa Park and Brighton’s Amex Stadium.

Only six of the matches are to be played in the north of England, with a focus on the south east and, especially London venues. Only two regular rugby grounds are to be used, too, with a focus on shifting the sport’s perception and incorparting venues that can help spread the sport’s following.

The opening match will be played at Twickenham on September 18, 2015.
