Cheltenham Rugby Club Confirmed as an Official Team Base for Rugby World Cup 2015

England Rugby 2015, the Organising Committee for Rugby World Cup 2015 (RWC 2015), has announced the approved list of 41 Team Bases that will host the 20 participating teams during the Tournament, taking place in England and in Cardiff between September 18 and October 31 2015.

A Rugby World Cup 2015 Team Base will consist of an outdoor pitch, indoor training facility, a swimming pool, gym and hotel and will be utilised by the competing teams in the lead up to and during the six week event. The facilities must meet international team training standards and be located on one site or within close proximity of one another. Match venue locations have also been taken into account as part of the selection programme.

The search for Team Bases was launched via an open tender process in May 2013 and over 90 bids from across the country and in Wales were received. Cheltenham Rugby Club has worked closely with England Rugby 2015 over the past 12 months to facilitate detailed site visits and liaison with the teams prior to confirmation of its status as an official Team Base for Rugby World Cup 2015. With Argentina and Tonga based at Cheltenham Rugby Club, this gives Cheltenham the opportunity to be part of the world’s third largest sporting event and celebration of rugby next year.

points which ultimately came back to bite us at the end of the season
because we ended up 1 point short of avoiding relegation. Continue reading
