A year and a half before the Rugby World Cup begins in France on September 8, 2023, foreign teams that have already qualified are looking for their base camp. An official announcement has yet to be made, but the New Zealand national team is expected to move to Lyon.

The triple world champion from New Zealand was already logged into Lyon in 2023 for several months, with the All Blacks having to play at Groupama Stadium with their group matches against Italy, on September 29, and Uruguay, on September 5. What was not, and which will undoubtedly delight more than one Lyon rugby fan, is that New Zealand should set up their base camp in the Gaulish capital, at least for the start of the World Cup.

A year and a half before the Rugby World Cup begins in France on September 8, 2023, foreign teams that have already qualified are looking for their base camp. Shortly after the Australian selection was formalized to settle in Saint-Étienne for the duration of the competition, Lyon sports assistant Julie Noblet Faure raised hopes of seeing another famous team settle in Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes region.

“Lyon has crazy hope: getting the privilege of hosting the black base camp for the 2023 Rugby World Cup! Nothing is certain, our candidacy is strong and we believe in it so hard, what a celebration”, wrote on Twitter the chosen one. A few hours later, Julie Noblett-Four this time wove the mathematical metaphor to temper the enthusiasm somewhat by defining “We did not flatten, just a 5-meter clash with our introduction“.

However, genius is now out of the box and the idea of ​​seeing one of the best teams in the world train in Lyon is far from ideal. According to the sports department progressHowever, the case would be closed and the All Blacks were therefore planning to stay over a month between Ron and Saun, until the end of the group stage on October 8. The regional daily specifies that New Zealanders must train at Lou Rugby facilities in Gerland. A location where they could stay, if they were to settle in the hotel to be built within the walls of Gerland.
