World Rugby and the Rugby Football Union have confirmed that Twickenham Stadium will host the final of the 2025 Women's Rugby World Cup.

The last time England hosted the competition in 2010, it was the Twickenham Stoop in London that hosted the final which saw New Zealand edge out the red roses 13-10.

Twickenham Stadium which has a capacity of 82,000 spectators will look to surpass the world attendance record for a women's international in April when 58,498 spectators witnessed England's Women Six Nations clash against France.

The tournament will kick off on 22nd August at Sunderland's Stadium of Light and involve 16 teams.

"Women's Rugby World Cup England 2025 will be a generational moment for rugby," World Rugby chairman Sir Bill Beaumont said.

"The biggest, most accessible and most widely-viewed, its unstoppable momentum will reach, engage and inspire new audiences in ways that rugby events have not done before."
