WHICH STADIUM IS HOSTING THE FINAL?

Stadium Australia in Sydney will host the World Cup final. It is the largest venue being used for the tournament and seats nearly 75,000 spectators.

Built for the Sydney 2000 Olympics with an original capacity of more than 100,000, it also hosted the final of the 2003 men’s Rugby World Cup, which England won.

At this tournament, it hosted Australia’s opening game against Ireland and matches in each of the knockout rounds, all of sellouts.

 

WHAT HAPPENS IF THE SCORES ARE TIED?

If the scores are tied at the end of the 90 minutes of regulation time, an extra 30 minutes are played.

If the scores are still tied after extra time, the title is decided by a penalty shootout. In the first phase of the shootout, each team takes five penalties. If the scores are still tied after that, the shootout goes into sudden death.
