The Rugby World Cup Comes To Tokyo 2019 ラグビーワールドカップは東京2019にやってきます。
Trains in Tokyo are now advertising the forthcoming Rugby World Cup .
The 2019 Rugby World Cup will be the ninth Rugby World Cup to be held in Japan from 20 September to 2 November. This will be the first time the tournament is to be held in Asia, the first time consecutive tournaments have been staged in the same hemisphere, and also the first time that the event will take place outside the traditional heartland of the sport.
The opening match of the 2019 Rugby World Cup will take place at Tokyo Stadium in Chōfu, and the final match will be held at the International Stadium Yokohama in Kanagawa.
These venue assignments were announced in September 2015 when plans for the tournament were revised by Japan's organizing committee and accepted by World Rugby.
The National Olympic Stadium, being rebuilt for the 2020 Summer Olympics, was originally the centerpiece of Japan's Rugby World Cup bid, but revisions to the Olympic Stadium plans mandated the World Cup venue changes.
