Club News Kick off times and ticket prices announced for Rugby World Cup 2015

England Rugby 2015 has announced the kick off times and ticket prices for the next Rugby World Cup, including the three matches to be played at stadiumMK.

The Pool D clash between France and Canada will be Milton Keynes's first opportunity to shine on the world stage, with the game kicking off at 5pm on Thursday, October 1st, 2015.

The following Saturday (October 3rd) will see Samoa play Asia 1 at 2:30pm, with the Pool A match between Oceana 1 (likely to be Fiji) and the Play-Off Winner being played at 8pm on Tuesday, October 6th.

Ticket prices for the three games start at just £7 for juniors and £15 for adults, although the three games have been categorised to reflect the respective tiers of the nations involved.

"Today we are launching our ticketing plans so that fans understand the ticketing process for Rugby World Cup 2015," said ER2015 chief executive Debbie Jevans. "We want the tournament to be a celebration of rugby, encouraging more people to support and enjoy the game.

"We have a range of ticket prices for every budget – for fans and families who want to come to one of the world's greatest sports events. Our ticketing programme is built for fans who support the Game week in week out, whilst encouraging a new generation of rugby fans through Rugby World Cup 2015.”

The public around the world and in the UK can buy travelling fan packages from January 1st, 2014, allowing them time to make travel arrangements. These will be sold through the Official Travel Agents appointed by RTH.

In February the hospitality programme will launch via RTH, offering a range of package options, catering for a variety of requirements and budgets.

The 'Rugby fans through Rugby clubs' programme will launch in May/June 2014. England 2015 will work with the RFU and its clubs to make available tickets to club members who support the Game week in, week out in the host nation. England 2015 will also work to make this available to European Rugby Unions. Details on the club ticketing programme will be finalised in early 2014.

In September 2014, one year from the tournament, general sales will begin through a public application process. Fans will be able to apply for tickets with oversubscribed matches being entered into a ballot system. Following a full tender process, England 2015 has appointed Ticketmaster as the official ticketing provider. Ticketmaster is the RFU's ticketing partner and they will deliver the online platform.

The final phase of ticketing will see any remaining tickets go on real time sale in November/December 2014 with an ambition to sell out the grounds ahead of the tournament which kicks off on September 18th, 2015.
