 The ninth edition of the Women's Rugby World Cup 2021 & It will be the first time the WRWC2021 has been played in the Southern Hemisphere at ALL BLACKS land while the Inaugural tournament was launched in 1991 when it was held in Wales.

Two host cities were selected & all Matches will be played at the Waitakere Stadium in Auckland with 5,000-capacity and the Northland Events Centre in Whangarei, as well as the 25,000 capacity Albany Stadium and Eden Park, which hosted the men's Rugby World Cup 2011 final for the 2021 Women’s Rugby World Cup.


 12 teams will play in the tournament, to be staged in Auckland and Northland. This includes the extension of the tournament window from 23 to 25 days, the introduction of a quarterfinal stage and increasing squads from 28 to 30.

New Zealand has the 5-time champions in Women's Rugby tournaments & most recently in 2017 Women's Rugby World cup when ALL Blacks beat England 41-31 in the final in Ireland.

"Congratulations to New Zealand on being elected women's Rugby World Cup 2021 host," World Rugby chair Bill Beaumont said in a statement.

"They presented a very strong and compelling bid and we look forward to working with New Zealand Rugby to host a successful and inspiring tournament.

"I would also like to thank Australia for their exceptional bid. We hope to welcome Australia back to bid again in the future."

"Women’s rugby continues to grow with over 2.4 million women and girls playing rugby at all levels, accounting for more than a quarter of players globally," said Beaumont.

"With Women’s Rugby World Cup attracting record crowds and broadcast audiences in each of the last three tournaments - Ireland 2017, France 2014 and England 2010 - I am in no doubt that the 2021 tournament, the first to be held in the Southern Hemisphere, will continue this record-breaking trend."
