Save the date: RWC Tickets

England Rugby 2015 have announced the dates of the general ticket sales window for the Rugby World Cup next year.

Tickets for all 48 games will go on sale via an application window which opens on September 12 and closes on September 29, 2014, a year in advance of the tournament.

From September 12, members of the public will be able to select the matches they want to attend across the country and in Cardiff, with any oversubscribed matches balloted.

In advance of the general sale, 500,000 tickets will go on sale to rugby fans this month through the Rugby Community Ticket Programme launched earlier this year.

All clubs and RFU affiliated organisations in England will, from today, be able to register their nominated members to purchase tickets from May 16, 2014.

The programme gives clubs the opportunity to recognise and reward loyal fans who support the game week in week out in the host country for Rugby World Cup 2015. A similar programme has also launched today in Wales giving Welsh rugby club members the chance to purchase tickets for the eight matches at the Millennium Stadium, given the important role the stadium will play at RWC 2015.

England Rugby 2015 also announced details for the international Rugby World Cup Trophy Tour, celebrating rugby and taking the Webb Ellis Cup to 15 countries in the build-up to the Tournament.

The tour will be delivered in partnership with Land Rover and DHL and will depart for Japan on May 20, 2014 for the first leg of the tour.

In addition to Japan, the route will include visits to Australia, Fiji, Madagascar, Kenya, South Africa, Argentina, Uruguay, China, USA, UAE, Italy, Germany, Romania, France before returning to England on 100 days to go (June 10, 2015) for a tour of the UK and Ireland.

"Our plans are right on track with 500 days to go. We are pleased to announce the dates of the general sale today, allowing fans to save the date and plan," said Debbie Jevans, England Rugby 2015 CEO.

"We have seen a very strong response to the Rugby Community Ticket Programme and we are pleased we have enabled clubs to recognise their loyal fans with access to tickets for Rugby World Cup 2015 on home turf. From today, members are being registered and 500,000 tickets will go on sale from May 16 - June 30.

"With 500 days to go, everything is in place to ensure that Rugby World Cup 2015 is an unforgettable experience for players and fans, delivering a record-breaking platform for the promotion and growth of rugby worldwide," said RWCL Chairman Bernard Lapasset.

"The vision and dedication of the event organisers has driven great excitement and enthusiasm across the 13 venues and 11 host cities and this is being reflected across the global rugby community as we count down to what I am confident will be the biggest and best Rugby World Cup yet, furthering the profile and growth of rugby in the host nation and worldwide."
