Rugby World Cup boss suspended by French Sports Minister

Rugby World Cup 2023 chief executive Claude Atcher was suspended by French Sports Minister Amélie Oudéa-Castera on Monday after a preliminary investigation into his management style found evidence of “deep unease social” within the organization.

“Atcher will no longer be present or active, directly or indirectly, within, in the name and on behalf of the GIP (organizing committee) for the duration of his layoff,” the ministry said in a statement.
