Rugby World Cup OS agreement revealed

rugbyThe venue hire agreement between Olympic Stadium owners E20 LLP and England Rugby 2015 Limited has been the latest contract published under Freedom of information laws this week.

There has been a domino effect of publication of previously confidential agreements since a coalition of football supporters fought for the publication of West Ham’s rental agreement with the stadium owner.

Last week, saw the fine details of the sweet deal enjoyed by UK Athletics in hiring the Olympic Stadium with a base £35,000 maintained fee for a 45 day exclusive summer rental window.

The Olympic Stadium saw five matches at the Rugby World Cup in 2015 including the bronze final on October 30th but group pool matches included France v Romania  (September 23rd) New Zealand v Namibia (September 24th), Ireland v Italy (October 4th) and South Africa v United States on (October 7th).

Although details about corporate hospitality,  catering and naming rights have all been revealed, the actual amount Rugby organisers paid has been blacked out.  Stadium owners were forced to reveal West Ham are paying £2.5m in rent plus performance bonuses but the Rugby World Cup rent is being kept secret.

The redacted RWC agreement can be found  HERE
