The International Rugby Board has confirmed that tickets to the Rugby World Cup in New Zealand next year will go on sale on April 27th, marking the beginning of the countdown to the event.
The video below has been created by the IRB’s marketing department, and it certainly got me excited and jogged a few incredible memories from previous tournaments.
If you fancy taking the trip to New Zealand, you can apply to enter a ballot for tickets to all pool matches at a chosen venue, and tickets to all pool matches featuring a particular team from April 27th. Then in August and September, you’ll be able to apply for individual tickets to every game except the semi-finals and final.
A package to see all of England’s pool matches will set you back between £127 (for Cat D tickets) and £374 (for Cat A). The Wales package is marginally cheaper, whilst Scotland’s and Ireland’s packages are slightly cheaper again at to £104 to £326.
I’m quite tempted to get myself out there for what is sure to be an amazing trip, but not sure if any of the home nations will be competitive enough. What do you think? Is it worth going?
Some people have been claiming that ticket prices are too high, but these costs suggest that you could see every match that England play in the competition for just £127!
