An evening with Matt Carroll - Chief Operating Officer and Executive Adviser  -

Rugby World Cup Japan - 2019

A special event with one of Australia's leading sports businessmen and administrators.

The business of sport in Japan will be in the forefront over the next six years as Japan prepares to host two of the three biggest sporting events on the planet.

Matt Carroll is the Chief Operating Officer of Rugby World Cup Japan 2019. He has an Order of Australia Medal for services to Rugby Union.

2019 will be an historic year in sport, with the Rugby World Cup being held for the first time outside of the traditional rugby countries. As Executive adviser to RWC Japan 2019, Matt is responsible for the Master plan and a $300 million budget.

Matt's career has been spent successfully managing the delicate balance between sport, governments and the corporate world. Highlights have included delivering the best Rugby World Cup in 2003 here in Australia to establishing the A League and restructuring the Super Rugby competition.

Matt will have great insights into the story of the RWC 2019 so far and the inner workings and strategic implementation of not only RWC 2019 but also the business of sport in Japan.

Just twelve months after the Rugby World Cup, Japan will host the Olympic and Paralympic Games.

Our Evening with Matt Carroll is a must for anyone who has an interest in sport and Japan, and would like to know more about the opportunities that may be available to Australian businesses in the exciting lead up to these huge events.

Registrations are now open online, or download the form and post with a cheque.
