Rugby World Cup 2015

Delivering Rugby to the World
The sport of Rugby is in our DNA. With wide-ranging Rugby partnerships in some of the world’s most Rugby-crazed nations like South Africa and England, and after the huge success of RWC 2011 in New Zealand, it was only natural that DHL would line up again to help deliver the sports global showpiece, as Official Logistics Partner of Rugby World Cup 2015.

Hosted in autumn 2015, the biggest sports event of the year is set to be the largest and best RWC to date. Administered by the International Rugby Board, the sport’s international governing body, 20 teams from around the world qualify to compete for the coveted Webb Ellis Cup, with only 4 winners since the inaugural RWC in 1987 – New Zealand, Australia, South Africa and England.

During the run-up to RWC 2015 and over the six-week tournament, DHL will be handling all freight movements for the 20 participating teams and our goal is to match the world-class performance, teamwork, passion and will to win fans will surely be treated to on the pitch.

This time around DHL has also partnered with England Rugby’s International Trophy Tour – A year long journey for the Webb Ellis Cup through traditional rugby hotspots such as Australia and South Africa, but also to countries where rugby is an emerging sport, such as Japan and China. DHL will be transporting the Cup throughout its journey, helping to build the excitement for RWC 2015 every step on the way and we’re proud to be delivering the cup to existing rugby audiences and introducing this great sport to new faces throughout the world.
