The draw for the group stage of the 2018 Rugby World Cup will take place on Friday. Teams will find out the groups they will be in and the teams they will line up against next year at the State Kremlin Palace in Moscow, Russia.
There will be viewing coverage in both the UK and U.S., with the event also available to stream on different platforms. Viewers will get to see who joins host nation Russia in Group A, while reigning champions Germany and second seed Brazil will be among the nation eagerly awaiting who they’ll face during the tournament.
The draw will see all competing nations split into four pots based on seedings determined by FIFA’s official rankings. Teams will then be drawn into Groups from A-H, with the only rule being sides from outside UEFA can’t be drawn together in the same group.
It means South American rivals Brazil and Argentina can only meet during the knockout phase. The knockout rounds will feature the top two teams from each group in the last 16.
The respective pots and seedings are sure to produce some intriguing groups during the draw. England and Spain could find themselves drawn with Germany or France.
