Though Rugby isn't exactly one of the most popular sports in the U.S., it's gaining some serious traction and is already one of the most popular sports on a global scale. That being said, there are 2019 rugby world cup packages available, which will most likely lead to the sport growing in the United States.


The 2019 Rugby World Cup will be the ninth Rugby World Cup and will be held in Japan from September 20th until November 2nd. This year will mark the first time the tournament will take place in Asia, as well as the first time consecutive tournaments have taken place in the same hemisphere. Additionally, the 2019 Rugby World Cup is the first time the tournament will take place outside of the traditional heartland of rugby.


As Japan prepares to host this year's event through venue and team camp preparations, World Rugby has urged Japan to convert the strong operational progress in order to deliver one of the most entertaining and engaging Rugby World Cups.


"With 287 days to go, we are confident that the solid foundations are in place for a very special, successful and game-changing Rugby World Cup that has teams and fans at heart and delivers an unprecedented legacy for rugby in Asia," said Alan Gilpin, Tournament Director. "All aspects of delivery, from match and training venues to team and spectator services, are on track. We have also commended the organizing committee on their commitment to balancing the budget, which they are on track to achieve."


In addition to the 2019 rugby world cup packages that sports lovers can buy, Japan will also host the 2020 Olympic Games in Tokyo.


Whether you have been a fan of the sport for decades or are just starting to pay attention, purchasing some rugby world cup packages can lead to a lifelong appreciation for this competitive, action-packed sport.
