Official Rugby World Cup website launched

SYDNEY: The launch of the official Rugby World Cup (RWC) website took place in Sydney a few days ago. The event kicks off on 10 October and finishes in the first week of November in Australia.

An official release informs that this is the biggest tournament website ever undertaken by RWC. It will be covered in three languages – English, French and Spanish.

Around 21 editors will be working from 8 am to midnight daily during the tournament. The site takes information feeds from the official scorers, providing real time information, scores and player statistics during each game. Other features of the Rugby World Cup 2003 website include links to audiovisual content, including live match audio and video highlights.

The site will have news and features, match coverage with live text commentary, live stats. Another offering is the premium audio video service. This will showcase the best action from previous RWCs, live match audio, video highlights of every match. RWC MD Mike Miller added, 'We have shown our commitment to spreading the global visibility of rugby by providing our most extensive online Tournament service ever. We couldn’t have achieved this without the expertise of Unisys, Telstra and Microsoft, who have worked together to make this a product of which we can all be proud. I hope you enjoy using rugbyworldcup.com."

Software company Unisys has built the infrastructure required to develop and host the website, managed its development to specifications laid down by the IRB, and is providing the web hosting services. Unisys stated that above all else the Rugby World Cup needed a web site sitting on a resilient server, powered by resilient software, supported by accountable services.

The company believes that it has delivered all these to the Rugby World Cup. The end result is a service that will allow up to 100 million web site hits per day. It is impossible to predict the level of interest and load on the site. Therefore Unisys scaled the solution to fit, and claim to have done so on time and on budget.SYDNEY: The launch of the official Rugby World Cup (RWC) website took place in Sydney a few days ago.
