World Cup Knowledge Transfer

World Rugby
Planning & Delivery


World Rugby required assistance in developing a system to manage the classification and dissemination of information gathered after each Rugby World Cup.


Having worked on every Rugby World Cup since 2003, MI was the ideal consultant to design and develop the Knowledge Centre. Utilising our expertise in Information Technology solution design, combined with our knowledge of how Organising Committees would be searching for information, MI was able to develop a bespoke solution that enables the easy search and retrieval of over 17,000 files from each Rugby World Cup since 2003. The service also included the ongoing data management and systems administration up until 2023.


The Knowledge Centre has greatly improved the access to previous Rugby World Cup information and best practices to enable more efficient planning and better communication between World Rugby and the Organising Committees of each host nation.
