England to host 2025 Rugby World Cup

England have been confirmed as hosts of the 2025 women's World Cup.

The World Rugby Council also unanimously approved Australia as hosts for the men's World Cup in 2027 and the women's in 2029.

The United States will host the men's tournament for the first time in 2031 and the women's in 2033.

The Rugby Football Union said it wants 2025 to be the "best attended" women's World Cup and aims to fill Twickenham's 82,000 seats for the final.

The most recent World Cup hosted in England was the 2015 men's competition.

It is the first time World Rugby has announced the next five World Cup hosts at the same time, a move chairman Sir Bill Beaumont said provided "unprecedented certainly".
