Rugby World Cup 2015 is to be England's third time hosting World Cup matches. The tradition of concentrating home matches at Twickenham is in common to that of Wales at the Millnnium Stadium, Scotland at Murrayfield and Ireland at the Aviva Stadium. This factor combined with rugby lacking a nationwide spread in all four nations contributed heavily to the disorganization of Rugby World Cups 1991 and 1999 which featured all four, in addition to France, hosting matches. 2007, for other reasons, saw Wales and Scotland hosting for a third time while Wales will do so for a fourth in 2015. The ability of the Welsh Rugby Union (WRU) to secure fixtures every eight years is questionable considering many matches not being full and this trend appears set to continue in 2015.
