IRB Chairman Bernard Lapasset said: “Women’s Rugby is one of the fastest growing sports in the world and the 2014 Women’s Rugby World Cup in Paris is set to cap another fantastic year for Women’s rugby following a record-breaking second season of the IRB Women’s Sevens Series.
“The 2010 Women’s Rugby World Cup in England was a game changer that put Women’s rugby on the global sporting map.
“I have no doubt that this year’s event in France will raise the bar even higher with a strong broadcast platform and attractive ticketing programme providing the stage for what promises to be a highly competitive event.”
Matches from the tournament will be broadcast on Sky Sports in Ireland and the UK, France 4 in the host nation and on Eurosport across most of the continent. Sky have yet to confirm their broadcast schedule for the tournament.
