Australian rugby has put together a strong team for a competition even more important than regaining Bledisloe. It won the right to host the Rugby World Cup in 2027.
The Saturday Telegraph can reveal that the federal government is providing an additional $ 8.8 million to help Australia secure the right to host the 2027 RWC, the world’s third largest sporting event.
Hosting the tournament will create 12,000 jobs, attract more than 200,000 international visitors and generate an estimated $ 2.2 billion.
“Events of this magnitude have an enormous impact on the entire economy,” said Federal Tourism Minister Simon Birmingham.
“While we are currently unable to welcome international visitors, all the efforts we can make to secure major events that bring more tourists to Australia will be critical to the overall growth of our tourism industry.”
The last time Australia hosted the Rugby World Cup was in 2003 when the tournament fascinated the nation.
Federal Sports Minister Richard Colbeck said 2027 would be an even bigger party after the coronavirus got dark.
“It has been a challenging time for the Australian sports community as the Tokyo 2020 Olympic and Paralympic Games have been postponed to 2021 and a number of other high profile sporting events have been canceled or postponed,” he said.
“A successful offer will strengthen the community spirit and contribute significantly to the country’s long-term recovery from COVID-19.”
The final decision on the venue for the 2027 Rugby World Cup has been postponed to mid-2022. However, Australia is the favorite after assembling a high profile bid team that includes former Prime Minister John Howard and former Governor General Peter Cosgrove John Coates, Vice President of the International Olympic Committee, Rod Eddington, former British Airways Chairman Elizabeth Gaines , Head of Fortescue Metals Group, Olivia Wirth, Senior Executive of Qantas, and Wallabies legends Phil Kearns, John Eales and Gary Ella.
“It’s going very well,” said Hamish McLennan, chairman of Rugby Australia, of the offer. “We are probably the most advanced command to date.”
Heading the offer, Kearns – who has won two world championships as a player – said the government’s commitment to the campaign is the green light the team needs to move forward.
“Basically, it gives us the confidence to proceed with the offer,” said Kearns.
“It’s great that the government has recognized that the World Cup here in Australia is good for Australian youth and rugby players, great for rugby Australia in general and the wider community, and good for Australia. It will be a real national event. ”
