The fixtures and draw for the 2015 Rugby Union World Cup is listed below. The 2015 RWC will take place in England and Wales and begin on Saturday, September 19 (AEST), with the final taking place at Twickenham on the morning of Monday, November 1 (AEST).

12 of the 13 venues hosting 2015 Rugby World Cup matches are located in England, with Cardiff’s Millenium Stadium also approved by the IRB due to its capacity and strategic location.

The 20 teams taking part in the 2015 Rugby World Cup are divided into four pools and play four matches against each of the other teams in the same pool. The top two sides from each pool then progress into the quarter-finals, upon which the tournament becomes a knockout format.
