IR APPOINTED SECURITY ADVISERS TO THE 2027 RUGBY WORLD CUP
IR APPOINTED SECURITY ADVISERS TO RUGBY AUSTRALIA FOR THE 2027 RUGBY WORLD CUP
On 24 November, World Rugby announced Australia as the preferred candidate to host this prestigious international event. Rugby Australia is now working with World Rugby to finalise the model for 2027 – to be voted on by the World Rugby Council in May 2022.
IR has completed several key deliverables for RA. We delivered a national rugby venue scoping exercise – reviewing security and emergency management arrangements across the array of potential stadia.
We prepared a RWC Australia 2027-2031 Security Risk Assessment, addressing criteria and methodology specified by World Rugby: consistent with the international standard Risk Management – Guidelines (ISO 31000-2018).
IR also prepared a RWC Tournament Security Plan. This plan outlines the security roles and responsibilities of the key stakeholders and the high-level venue security principles for an Australia RWC. In conjunction with the Security Risk Assessment it provides a foundation to inform more detailed security planning tasks, including resource implications for security and police agencies.
The Tournament Security Plan is a high-level master plan, it will be a guide to the subsequent development of a more detailed Tournament Security Concept of Operations.
- Provides World Rugby with confidence RA will ensure the security and wellbeing of the teams, spectators and other stakeholders while delivering a very successful RWC Tournament in Australia.
- Informs relevant stakeholders on the planned roles and responsibilities of the Australian Organising Committee (OC) and the security and police delivery partners for the Tournament.
- Assesses existing venue security and emergency management capabilities and highlights some areas that will require adjustments or supplementation before a 2027 RWC.
