“The Sports Consultancy provided World Rugby with advice and support on the RWC 2023 Host Selection Process.
During the final stages of the project, their in-house designer, Sahil Fernandes, designed the RWC 2023 Host Selection Process Evaluation Report.
The report was aimed at key global stakeholders including the sports media, hence there was significant pressure to ensure it represented the professional and dynamic nature of the RWC but was also 100% accurate.
The TSC team worked closely with the RWC team to ensure they understood our requirements. The end result was perfect, a beautifully crafted report, which balanced narrative and imagery with a clear and natural flow.
The design team’s work was exemplary but it was also very reassuring to have the inhouse design team working on this project, due to the sensitive and complex nature of the project.”
