The Rugby World Cup 2023 kicks off Friday 8 September and concludes Saturday 28 October, with the opening game and final held at Stade de France, Paris.

It’s shaping up to be a fascinating tournament, with Ireland (World No.1) hosts France (World Cup favourites) and New Zealand (three-time winners) all in good form and South Africa aiming to defend their title after beating England in the 2019 final in Japan.

All England fixtures will be screened live in the club and are now listed in the events section so you can plan your weekend diaries and claim your seat in the bar! With four Sale Sharks players (flanker Curry, fly-half Ford, prop Rodd, centre Tuilagi) named in the England squad there could be, hopefully, plenty for local fans to cheer on.   
All other big games will be screened on request. Full list of World Cup matches HERE.
