(Reuters) – France, Ireland and South Africa are the three countries in the running to host the 2023 Rugby World Cup, World Rugby (WR) said on Tuesday.

Italy withdrew its application last week after failing to guarantee government support for staging the event.

“I would like to congratulate the unions for successfully progressing to candidate status and we welcome further dialogue with all parties as momentum builds towards the selection of the Rugby World Cup 2023 host,” WR chairman Bill Beaumont said in a statement.

World Rugby will unveil the host nation of the 2023 World Cup in November, 2017.
