welcome ceremony for Rugby World Cup

New Zealand will play host to the 2011 Rugby World Cup starting in September.

In honour of that occasion, the trophy that rugby playing nations will be competing for, the Webb Ellis Cup, came to the United Nations for a kick off ceremony with world leaders, players and officials.

The International Rugby Board has also teamed up with the World Food Programme (WFP) to Tackle Hunger by raising money and awareness of the issue.
