On board, the opening match between France and New Zealand will take centre stage, and an immersive virtual reality experience will plunge you into the atmosphere of 8 September 2023 at the Stade de France.

The Webb Ellis Trophy as a guest star!

The highlight of the day will undoubtedly be the presentation of the 2023 World Cup, the famous WEBB ELLIS Trophy, awarded to the winner of the tournament since 1987! This guest star will be received on Sunday 24 July from 9am to 12pm in the main lounges of the Hôtel de Ville!
