50 Days to the Women’s Rugby World Cup

There are 50 days to go until Ireland hosts the Women’s Rugby World Cup, the largest international Women’s sport event ever to be held here.

Tickets for the Pool stages at UCD sold out before extra capacity was added to the Belfield Bowl but you will have to move quick to get there.

Sport for Business will be there having booked a family ticket to see the opening day fixtures between Ireland and Australia as well as reigning World Champions England against Spain and the USA against Italy, all for €40 for two adults and two kids. You can’t say that’s not great value.


Sport for Business Membership provides a network of information, innovation and intelligence to over 200 of Ireland’s leading organisations in sport and business.  We will be building up to the Women’s Rugby World Cup through July with a series looking at how each of the key supporters are making the tournament work for them. These include Fáilte Ireland, Heineken, Dublin City Council, Aon, Land Rover, DHL and more. Here is a look at what we do.


We will be chatting with team members Lindsey Peat, Marie Louise Reilly and Nora Stapleton as well as Grand Slam winning captain Fiona Coghlan at Dublin City Council later today as they mark their involvement in bringing the tournament to Dublin and then Belfast.

The Rugby World Cup Trophy Tour continues around the country as well. It will be at the Civic Offices from 12 until 2pm today and then at the offices of Aon in Dublin on Friday as well as at schools and clubs around the country.

The excitement is building as Tournament director Garrett Tubridy, Cliodhna Moloney and Paula Fitzpatrick share in this piece of video content released to mark the 50 day milestone by the team at Irish Rugby…
