Rugby World Cup 2023 Team Base Camps (Confirmed)The Rugby World Cup is just a few days away and the news and updates regarding the tournament are coming thick and fast. Today, we will be sharing the confirmed list of RWC 2023 team base camps. All 20 teams have been assigned the base camp where they will practice and get ready for the tournament. 

What is a Team Base Camp?

During a Rugby World Cup, each team is typically assigned a “base camp” where they will stay and train during the tournament. The base camp is usually a hotel or other accommodation located near the team’s scheduled matches and is equipped with facilities such as training fields, gyms, and medical facilities to allow the team to prepare for their games.

Teams typically spend the majority of their time at the base camp, only traveling to the venue for their matches. This allows them to focus on their preparations and minimizes the amount of time they need to spend traveling.

Base camps can also serve as a hub for fans and members of the media to interact with the teams and get a sense of the atmosphere surrounding the tournament.

The France 2023 Organizing Committee has designated nine French regions to host participating teams for Rugby World Cup 2023. These Team Base Camps were chosen through a detailed process that began in March 2019 and involved an initial “Call for Expression of Interest” and a pre-selection based on the ability to offer high-level facilities and optimize teams’ travel based on their pool phase matches. Team representatives visited the potential Base Camps in November 2021 to January 2022 and were presented with three options before making a final decision. The Base Camps will provide communities with the opportunity to engage with the tournament and the teams with access to the best facilities.
