Opening Match / France V New Zealand - September 8 th 2023


This opening match of Rugby World Cup 2023 at Stade de France between New Zealand and France is the match that all rugby fans, and sports fans in general, have been awaiting since the draw for the pool stages. What better way to get this competition started than a face-off between the French, at home, and the New Zealand team that has already taken home the Webb Ellis Trophy 3 times? Since the first World Cup held in 1987, these two leading nations of world rugby have kept up a healthy rivalry that has always delivered on its promises.

French fans will forever remember Rugby World Cup 1999 and the semi-final in Twickenham. Regarded as one of France’s greatest victories, the match saw “French flair” overcome the New Zealanders, arch favourites before the match,  coming away with a 43-31 win.

The opening match set to take place on Friday, September 08, 2023 promises an incredible celebration of rugby in an extraordinary atmosphere between two teams with fantastic attacking potential. The winner will take serious dibs on finishing 1st in Pool A and qualify for a quarter-final, also at Stade de France, against the second-placing team in Pool B.

No doubt that France, cheered on by its public, will be galvanised to get off to the best possible start in pursuit of the world title against New Zealanders who are already three-time world champions.
