This is an image of what the Rugby World Cup ‘fanzone’ will look like when it comes to the town centre in the summer.

The structure will be built in Old Market Square, next to the John Barford multi-storey car park, to host fans during the tournament.

It is the first time in the world cup’s history that Rugby will host an ‘official fanzone’, along with 11 host cities across England and Wales.

Rugby Borough Council has appointed Northamptonshire-based Neptunus to create the 750 square metre temporary structure that will stand on eight metre tall legs with a capacity for up to 1,000 people to watch live screenings of the matches.

Inside the structure there will be a clear span floor space to view games on a large five metre by three metre screen with bar areas and external toilet facilities.

The world cup will run from September 18 to October 25.
