The opening ceremony and first match of the 2019 Rugby World Cup took place on Friday, September 20 as nations from across the globe kicked off the competition for the Webb Ellis Cup. Here are the other matches you have to look forward to.

Where is the tournament being held?

Japan. See the full list of stadiums hosting the games.

The host nation had an excellent start to the competition, by winning their first game against Russia.

Who are the competing teams?

What is the latest RWC news?

As the tournament kicks off today, here’s a basic run-down of how it works:

The opening group stage of the competition sees 20 teams attempt to battle their way out of four Pools – A, B, C and D. Each Pool contains five teams and only two can advance into the knockout rounds.

From there it is standard quarter-final, semi-final, final format.

England’s Pool is particularly tricky having been drawn in C with Argentina and France. It means one of rugby’s ‘big fish’ will suffer the ignominy of going home early.
