London Heathrow Airport unveils giant rugby ball to celebrate the Rugby World Cup

A giant inflatable rugby ball has been unveiled in Terminal 3 (T3) at London Heathrow Airport to celebrate the Rugby World Cup coming to the UK, starting with England against Fiji on September 18, 2015.

The giant ball was unveiled by rugby legend Will Greenwood who was part of the England squad that won the world cup in 2003. Greenwood also handed out winning tickets to lucky competition winners and met with fans passing through the airport.

Greenwood said, “After playing in front of more than 80,000 at Twickenham, I understand the pressure and importance of fielding your A-team on the day. The Heathrow team are used to doing this every day as they welcome millions of passengers each year. This tournament gives us a great opportunity to give the world a warm welcome to the UK as this memorable rugby season kicks off.”

John Holland-Kaye, chief executive of London Heathrow, said, “As the UK’s front door, Heathrow is proud to welcome rugby fans and players from across the globe to Rugby World Cup 2015. Most of the teams have now arrived through and the excitement is building for the opening ceremony and games. We are delighted to be part of the team working to make this a fantastic tournament for everyone involved.”
