Rugby World Cup 2022 - OOC Sign Ups
« on: April 09, 2022, 05:43:37 PM »
Rugby World Cup 2022

Back for the seventh time is the Mundus Rugby World Cup (which is most likely the most hotly contested trophy on Mundus). Last tournament saw Lodja win their first World Cup defeating Vaguzia in the final, will the plucky underdogs triumph again? And who will triumph in the inaugural Women's World Cup?

Ok serious stuff, as per the usual sports sign ups state in this thread if you want to enter your nation into this - all hosting bids to be posted by the 19th of April please, following which there'll be a vote for hosting which I'll explain if one is needed. The full explanation of the bidding process is below. If no one bids we're going to an NPC nation. Remember the host is hosting both the mens and womens tournaments.

Bidding Process

The bidding process requires nations wishing to host to submit requested information, what information is dependent on the event in question. There will be a deadline set for bid submissions. any bids entered after that date will not be considered unless the vote has not opened. As you can probably guess from that sentence once bidding closes there will be a vote conducted by vote this will not be in the form of a poll but in the form of a post in this topic (this is to ensure fairness of the vote). Importantly I want to make clear that as I for the purposes of sport effectively play the governing bodies (in this instance Mundus International Rugby Confederation or MIRC) and I generally assume everyone to be a member, nations can protest bids, but please if doing so make it about something not just 'my nation does not like the bidding nation'. Also I reserve the right to invalidate a hosting bid if it would place competitors at risk  which I generally take to mean nowhere where there is a civil war or large scale civil unrest.

So with that in mind the following is the criteria for the Rugby World Cup bids
  • A minimum list of eight stadia- you are expected to include the capacity of these venues at least one stadium must have a minimum capacity of 80,000 (for the final) and at least two must have capacity's of 70,000
  • Name of the Main TV Rights Holder (For example Tytorian News Service or EMTV)
  • Information relating to accommodation for teams and supporters.
  • Importantly a written letter signed by a ranking member of your government stating that they will provide safe venues and protective services for all athletes and staff no matter which nation they hail from. (No refusing entry to a nation or holding people prisoner because you don't get along in RP with their nation).

Also a word of advice to those wishing to host. It has been brought to my attention that we've had an awful lot of "Image Parade Bids" of late i.e. bids which amount to venue pictures and a fairly generic letter. Therefore I strongly encourage all those who wish to host this competition to "Sell" their nations in terms of why they are the best host for it and to think about the legacy factor i.e. what will the lasting impact of your nation hosting the tournament be?

Final note I am limiting the number of tournaments to 32 nations if we get more than 32 nations then a qualification round will need to be held which I will explain if we get far. The participants shall be listed here.

The Holy Kingdom of Samantra will send a team for men. The Grand Duchy of Belgravia will do the same if there are open spots left and it's not against the rules.

East Moreland will send the winners of the mens and womens tournament ;)

Royal Seleucid will send a men's team if you don't hit the required number otherwise they'll have failed to qualify.

You can include teams for Jugland (men's and women's) as well as Djabidjan (men's).

If it is not out of order, Mktvartvelo will apply for first time (men's and women's). Note that Mktvartvelo's population would be around 113 million and did not have a professional league until earlier this year.

Add Ui Cenneslaig to both please.

If your short of teams then go for Cantabria. If you're massively short of teams include NA.

Tytor and Floodwater will both participate.  If having both is a problem, include Floodwater and drop Tytor.

 Accomodations, in every city where a game will be played, the government will offer stays at the best hotels in the city, all paid for by the government, as we don't want Rugby associations that have less money than others to be too much effected from this
As for the fans, we shall use everything in our power to create a safe environment for the fans, more police than normally will be available to battle the sell of fake tickets on the streets, and during the world cup, we will allow people to rent out rooms so that fans who can't afford fancy hotels also can have an affordable place to stay, rugby is a game for everyone and we really want to handle it as such.

Letter from the government:

We would be very proud to bring the Rugby World Cup to our nation, it is after all the most popular sport in our nation, because of the love of the game we hold in this nation, we also want to make sure that the image of our beautiful sport won't be damaged so we promise to do everything in our power to battle corruption, and be objective towards all teams, regardless of our relation with it's nation.

Signed,
Minister of Sport, Leonardo Aloe
