A sustainable Rugby World Cup

As part of its sustainable development policy, the France 2023 organization wants the Rugby World Cup 2023 to have a positive impact on the host cities. Environment, local economy, recruitment, accessibility… We tell you everything about these steps!

4 Major Commitments

The competition will be organized around 4 major commitments :

  • Reduce the impact on the environment
  • Act for a sustainable and circular economy
  • Commit to education, training and employment
  • Support inclusion and accessibility for all

Awareness will be raised among spectators and fans about the importance of waste management in the entertainment areas and in the stadium. A variety of workshops will be available to the general public in the Rugby Village.

An offer dedicated to people with disabilities

In order to offer better accessibility to all spectators, France 2023 will offer a welcome and support program for disabled people and people with reduced mobility.

Depending on availability, each person in possession of a disability card with more than 80% handicap, will be able to book a free PRM seat per match, with or without an accompanying person, for up to 3 matches*.

The concerned disabilities are : wheelchair users, people with reduced mobility, people with hearing, visual or mental disabilities.

Getting to the stadium

The 2023 Rugby World Cup is a sporting event accessible by soft mobility. Bicycles and electric scooters will be available all throughout the Cité Phocéenne to meet the needs of as many people as possible.

People who aren’t really as fond as using two wheels can opt for public transport. Line 2 of the métro provides a direct link between the city center and the stadium with its dedicated stop “Rond-Point du Prado” or “Sainte-Marguerite Dromel”.
