London's Olympic Stadium, which will host five matches, is among 13 stadiums that will host matches during rugby's flagship tournament, which takes place in September and October 2015.
Only four 'dedicated' rugby stadiums will be used – Cardiff's Millennium Stadium, Kingsholm in Gloucester, Sandy Park in Exeter and Twickenham, which will host two quarter-finals, both semi-finals and the final itself on October 31.
Nine football arenas are involved, including Manchester City's Etihad Stadium and Wembley.
England Rugby 2015 chief executive Debbie Jevans said: "The world can now start planning for Rugby World Cup 2015. In less than two-and-a-half years' time, we will be welcoming the world to England and to a celebration of rugby, played in a range of atmospheric stadiums right across the country."
