Rugby World Cup 2019, which kicks off in exactly one year’s time, will get unparalleled television coverage in Japan with all 48 games shown on J Sports and 31 games shown live on free-to-air channels, organizers have said.

“The tournament here will have unprecedented free-to-air coverage for rugby and it’s an opportunity to use rugby’s biggest event to reach the widest possible audience,” Alan Gilpin, head of Rugby World Cup Ltd., said Thursday, ahead of events marking the one-year-to-go milestone.
