Fans from around the world now have further opportunities to buy tickets for Rugby World Cup 2015 matches with more tickets on general sale from Tuesday 31 March via tickets.rugbyworldcup.com.
In addition to the 10 matches already on sale tickets for a further 20 matches will be available, including the opening match at Twickenham Stadium - England v Fiji, New Zealand v Argentina at Wembley Stadium, France v Ireland at Millennium Stadium and South Africa v Scotland at St James' Park.
In total more than 70,000 tickets will be available from 31 March. These include just under 50,000 tickets currently on sale and over 20,000 new tickets which are a mixture of seats released from ongoing venue planning and configuration, handbacks from the tournament's commercial programme and unions, and tickets that have been registered for official resale by fans who can no longer attend matches. Further tickets will be released for general sale over the coming months and details will be released in advance of sale.
The official ticket resale service, which opened on 24 March, allows fans to sell tickets for matches they can no longer attend at face value through a secure, transparent and authorised system at tickets.rugbyworldcup.com. Tickets posted for official resale before 30 March will go on sale on 31 March. Tickets posted from 31 March will go on general sale at tickets.rugbyworldcup.com within 72 hours. The official resale programme will run up to and during the tournament. Any ticket posted and not sold through resale 24 hours prior to a match will remain the property of the selling fan for them to use to attend the match.
In order to enjoy the best possible spectator experience and not be let down or misled, Rugby World Cup 2015 is urging fans to only buy tickets from official sources.
