As “Official Telecom Operator” of Rugby World Cup France 2023, Orange will supply all the telecommunications services required for the competition. High-speed broadband networks will be installed at each site, allowing everyone to experience all the thrills and spills of the event’s 48 matches, whether they are in France or overseas. Orange will offer the highest standards to both spectators and broadcasters.

The France 2023 and Orange teams will share the ambition to make Rugby World Cup France 2023 a responsible event with a positive impact on rugby, society and the planet. With a focus on social and environmental commitments, this 10th edition will leave a tangible legacy across the country.

Orange will also benefit from TV exposure during the 48 matches of the tournament and from a bespoke activation program, aligned with the Organising Committee CSR ambitions.

France 2023 Organising Committee CEO Claude Atcher said: “Because it is an historic supporter of rugby, a strong technological expert and a media outlet in itself, we have three good reasons to welcome the Orange Group as an Official Sponsor of Rugby World Cup France 2023. Together we will offer a unique experience to fans worldwide thanks to the expertise of a global telecommunications champion.”

Orange Chairman and CEO Stéphane Richard said: “Orange is proud to join Rugby World Cup France 2023 as an Official Sponsor. Our teams will be working hard to support the organisers, partners, broadcasters and spectators of this 10th Rugby World Cup. Back in 2007, we demonstrated our technical expertise to the rugby world, and the planet as a whole. Rugby World Cup 2023 will be an excellent opportunity to showcase France’s love of rugby, one year before it hosts the Olympics.”
