Rugby World Cup font

Can someone pleeaase tell me which font they use for RWC branding, and where I can get it? Also the font under the Heineken logo. (These people are very strict about getting it right, but don't give easy access to vector files).

Please move the thread to the Type ID Board.

About the Rugby world cup logo font, I think it's a bespoke typeface, it was created by Witekite I think :

Never mind the font, it would help if the logo designer knew what a rugby ball looked like, or could be bothered to render it with a more complex curve than an arc of circle. This looks like the more pointed American football, surely a faux pas.



But perhaps I am being too harsh and it is also supposed to represent a planetary highlight.

I don't think that a logo has to be realistic to be good. I quite like it that way.
