World Rugby Shelves Plans For Revolutionary Nations Championship

The fixtures would have taken place in traditional competitions like the Six Nations and Rugby Championship, as well as during summer and autumn test windows, with the top two teams meeting in the final at the end of the year.
World Rugby's concept to unify worldwide rugby across both hemispheres - a tournament played outside of World Cup years and culminating in a final played at the end of the November Test window - was underpinned by a guaranteed UK£6.1 billion (US$7.8 billion) cash injection by global sports marking agency, Infront, over an initial 12-year period, World Rugby confirmed.
Wednesday was the deadline for leading worldwide unions and federations from the Six Nations and southern hemisphere Rugby Championship to agree unanimously to proceed with a major revamp of the Test calendar, underpinned by a 12-year £6.1 billion "guarantee" from sports marketing agency Infront Sports & Media, backed by Hong Kong-based parent company Wanda Sports.
World Rugby says there was a "lack of consensus on key issues" including timing and the tournament's format.
"Importantly, ownership of the competition would have been retained by the unions and competition owners without any sale of equity".
World Rugby said it had been unable to bring all 10 top tier nations on board with media reports suggesting the potential for promotion and relegation was the sticking point for some of the less successful northern hemisphere nations.

Sir Bill Beaumont, World Rugby's chairman, said: "World Rugby undertook this important project with the best interests of the global game at heart in line with our vision to grow the sport as a game for all".
