Rugby union’s tier one nations are set for a £19m (€21.5m) windfall each from the 2023 Rugby World Cup in France. Gavin Mair in The Telegraph wrote this week how the £350m (€395.5m) guarantee from France 2023 will be shared with the ten tier one nations sharing £192.4m between them.

The 10 tier-one countries - England, France, Ireland, Scotland, Wales, Italy, South Africa, New Zealand, Australia and Argentina - are expected to share a record payout from World Rugby while remainder will be invested into tier two and tier three countries and to develop the game in untapped markets such as Germany, Brazil, China, India and the USA.
