Rugby World Cup Titles Will No Longer Be Gendered.

: 21/08/2019 - 13:45

The Rugby World Cup will no longer include any reference to gender in their titles.

From 2021, the women's version of the tournament will be referred to as the Rugby World Cup - the same name as the men's competition.

World Rugby says it's making the move to ensure both tournaments have equal billing from a brand perspective.

The organisation says it will also eliminate any perceived bias towards men’s only competitions, which traditionally haven't specified gender.
