Home to Ligue 1 club OGC Nice, Stade de Nice is another RWC 2023 host venue that also staged matches during UEFA Euro 2016 and FIFA Women’s World Cup 2019. The stadium hosted its only test to date on 17 August, 2019, when Maxime Médard scored two tries to help France to a 32-3 win over Scotland. RC Toulonnais have also played some Top 14 home matches at the stadium.
Stade de Nice is scheduled to host four matches during RWC 2023, with Wales, England, Japan, Italy and Scotland among the teams that will play on its manicured turf. England’s encounter with Japan on 17 September, 2023, promises to be one not to miss as Eddie Jones comes up against the side he coached at RWC 2015.
