N.B. Asterix indicates the newly released tickets on June 25

Managing Director of England Rugby 2015, Steve Brown, said: "With over 2 million tickets sold and less than 100 days to go, the appetite to watch the world's best teams is continuing to grow. This latest release of tickets will see further availability for five big matches at Twickenham including England's opening game against Fiji and the two Quarter Finals, as well as England v Uruguay, giving fans who missed out last time another opportunity to come to the Tournament.

"The official ticket resale service is still live via tickets.rugbyworldcup.com and provides support to fans who wish to sell tickets for matches they can no longer attend. Fans should only buy tickets from official sources to ensure their ticket is valid for entry at Rugby World Cup 2015 matches.”
