Count Down to Rugby World Cup

For More information on Rugby World Cup in Napier ...

Napier is hosting two pool games in the international tournament - France v Canada on September 18 and Canada v Japan on September 27. Both games will be played at McLean Park, the region's premium rugby venue.

Close to 300 volunteers will be turning out to help make Rugby World Cup in Napier an enjoyable experience for everyone taking part.

The visiting teams are to receive mayoral welcomes, visit marae, take part in open team practices and meet schoolboy rugby teams. The Canada team will be in town for 15 nights, Japan for six and France for three...

Banners fluttering from atop 336 power poles - including those flanking the city's scenic Marine Parade - will ensure Napier is well 'dressed' for the duration of the Rugby World Cup. So the city will be looking its best for a showcase occasion, with a predicted 85,000 - 95,000 international visitors in New Zealand for an average stay of 22 days. (Short summary of full article on Napier City Council website).
