A brief history of the Rugby World Cup

Once every four years, the World Cup sends rugby fans from all hemispheres into a spiraling frenzy of emotions that peaks with one of the 20 qualified teams lifting the Web Ellis trophy.

Although the competition is relatively new and doesn’t have the heritage and history of other global sporting competitions – such as the football World Cup –, it has established itself as one of the biggest events in the world.

Not a lot of people know this, but up until the first World Cup was held in 1987, the USA were considered champions in this sport by winning the Olympic games in 1924.

Everything you need to know about the 2019 tournament

Japan will host this 9th edition of the Rugby World Cup. The tournament kicks-off on the September the 20th and ends on November the 2nd.

Another fun trivia fact to know is that the same whistle is blown for the opening game of every Rugby World Cup tournament.

The 20 teams competing are:

New Zealand
South Africa

The tournament format consists of four groups of five countries with teams playing each other once. The top two from each group move forward to the quarterfinals. The winners will progress to the semi-final and then the final. Losing semifinalists will also play a playoff game for the bronze medal.

Where to watch Rugby World Cup live online

Rugby fans have plenty of options available to watch Rugby World Cup live online – including some that are free (if you use CyberGhost VPN).

For example, the official broadcaster for the United States, NBC, is available on multiple online streaming platforms (fuboTV, Sling TV, YouTube TV, PlayStation Vue) that offer a free trial. However, if you’re outside the US and want to create an account, you will need to use CyberGhost VPN and connect to a server located inside the US.

UK citizens who want to watch Rugby World Cup live online free can opt for ITV. All 48 matches can be streamed on ITV’s TV Player. The service is simple to use. To live stream the Rugby World Cup on ITV UK, you just need to connect to their website and click on the ’Watch Live’ button from the top left corner.

The service is blocked if you’re living outside the UK, but that’s where CyberGhost VPN comes in handy. Just fire up CyberGhost, connect to a VPN server located in the UK and ITV’s restrictions will magically disappear.
