The 2019 Rugby World Cup will be held in Japan from 20 September to 2 November 2019.

This will be the first time the tournament is to be held in Asia, and outside the traditional heartland of rugby union.

ITV will show every game of the tournament from the opening ceremony through to the Final in Yokohama on 2 November.

Mark Pougatch and Jill Douglas will lead ITV’s TV coverage in the company of Jonny Wilkinson, Sam Warburton, Brian O’Driscoll, Bryan Habana, Sir Clive Woodward, Paul O’Connell, Gareth Thomas, George Gregan, Sir Ian McGeechan, Lawrence Dallaglio, Maggie Alphonsi, Sean Fitzpatrick, Jim Hamilton, Mike Phillips and Michael Lynagh.

Co-commentators include rugby figures with a wealth of experience, including Jamie Roberts, Ugo Monye, Shane Williams, Scott Hastings, Danielle Waterman, Ben Kay and Alan Quinlan.

Craig Doyle and Martin Bayfield will also present shows during the tournament, while Gabriel Clarke will report from Japan along with David Flatman, who will also be a co-commentator.

Match commentary comes from Nick Mullins, Miles Harrison, Martin Gillingham and Simon Ward.

ITV’s coverage will feature the iconic Rugby Word Cup anthem, World In Union, sung in a new, specially-recorded version by Emeli Sande as its theme music.

The tournament will also be streamed live online via the ITV Hub: ITV | ITV4
