The 2019 Rugby World Cup will be the 9th tournament to be held. It is played every 4 years and started in 1987, when it was held in New Zealand. The 2019 edition will be hosted by Japan.

The 2019 tournament will have 20 teams playing in 4 pools of 5 teams. Each team will play the other 4 teams in the pool once. The top 2 teams in each pool then progress to the knock-out stage.
