Rugby Wednesday, October 5, 2016 Argentina close to hosting 2027 WCArgentina, the only Latin American country that can compete with the top rugby nations, is a step closer to hosting the World Cup in 2027. Having earlier made the intention known, President Mauricio Macri backed the candidacy by meeting with World Rugby officials late on Monday at Olivos presidential residence. “We are still evaluating the 2023 World Cup venue. It’s interesting for rugby to change venues and it’s good for Argentina to participate in the bidding process,” Beaumont said. To host a successful rugby World Cup in 10 years, we have to start now with better sporting policies and greater infrastructure, not only new stadiums.
