Australia will host the the men’s 2027 and women’s 2029 Rugby World Cups.
The men’s Rugby World Cup brings together 20 international teams from around the globe to play 48 matches over seven weeks.
Host cities and venues will now be finalised following the host country’s decision.
The Minister for Sport and Recreation David Templeman said Perth has repeatedly shown its ability to host successful and well-attended major international events.
“Hosting a world-class international event such as the Rugby World Cup provides inspiration to the entire community, especially for our young and upcoming rugby players.
“We continue to work with World Rugby and Rugby Australia on hosting matches in Perth, and with the world’s best teams playing for World Cup glory, if we secure some games, WA locals will be able to cheer teams on in what will be a truly memorable experience.”
