The 2021 Rugby World Cup is the ninth edition of the women’s Rugby World Cup, as organized by World Rugby. It is scheduled to be held from 8 October to 12 November 2022 in Auckland and Whangarei, New Zealand. It was originally scheduled to be held in 2021, but was postponed by one year due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

It will be the first women’s Rugby World Cup to be hosted by New Zealand, and by a country in the Southern Hemisphere. New Zealand are also the defending champions, aiming to win a record sixth women’s Rugby World Cup.

The tournament will introduce changes to increase its parity with the men’s Rugby World Cup, including the replacement of classification play-offs in the knockout stage with quarter-finals, and a longer scheduling window with at least five days between matches. It will also be the first to not be marketed by World Rugby as the “Women’s Rugby World Cup”, due to a decision to market both the men’s and women’s tournaments under the “Rugby World Cup” title with no disambiguation beginning in 2021.
