Less than six months separate us from the kick-off of the 2023 World Cup and the opening match between the 15 of France and the All Blacks scheduled for September 8. Be aware, however, that the World Cup will start a little earlier for the supporters. From August 15 in Paris, it will be possible to go to the rugby village at Place de la Concorde. A free fan zone that could accommodate around 10,000 people. And which will offer from Friday to Sunday, from 2 p.m. to 11:30 p.m., animations, rugby workshops, with in particular two fields, including one for wheelchair rugby. Two giant screens and a stage will show the matches. “A place will be dedicated to the media where a set will allow for interviews or live radio broadcasts“, indicates France Bleu. This rugby village will also host a megastore which will be permanently open to it. It will also be possible to meet athletes and legends of the oval, specifies RMC. “It’s one of the major events in world sport and we also wanted at the level of the city of Paris, to have a place that is up to the task and adapted. Both in terms of the programming, the festivities and then also for the image that it will send back internationally. It will concern all Parisians, Parisians, Ile-de-France residents and French people“, commented the former player of the Stade Français Pierre Rabadan, now Deputy Mayor of Paris in charge of sport, the Olympic and Paralympic Games and the Seine.Image credit: City of Paris – Non-contractual visual
