    Venues announced for RWC 2019

    The twelve cities that will host matches at World Cup 2019 in Japan were revealed at simultaneous announcements in Dublin and Tokyo on Monday.

    The venues are located across the length and breadth of Japan, giving the rugby-loving population every opportunity to be a part of the tournament.

    From Sapporo City in the northernmost main island of Hokkaido right down to Kumamoto City in the south, there is a geographical spread of venues, meaning fans will be at the heart of the event, and there is also a healthy mix of stadium capacities ranging from 80,000 in Tokyo to 15,000 at Kamaishi City in Iwate Prefecture.

    Full list of venues:

    Sapporo Dome, Sapporo City
    Kamaishi Recovery Memorial Stadium, Iwate Prefecture/Kamaishi City
    Kumagaya Rugby Ground, Saitama Prefecture/Kumagaya City
    New National Stadium Japan, Tokyo
    International Stadium Yokohama, Kanagawa Prefecture/Yokohama City
    Ogasayama Sports Park Ecopa Stadium, Shizuoka Prefecture
    Toyota Stadium, Aichi Prefecture/Toyota City
    Hanazono Rugby Stadium, Osaka Prefecture/Higashi Osaka City
    Kobe City Misaki Park Stadium, Kobe City
    Hakatanomori Football Stadium, Fukuoka City
    Kumamoto Prefectural Athletic Stadium, Kumamoto Prefecture/Kumamoto City
    Oita Stadium, Oita Prefecture
