Rugby fans hoping for 2019 World Cup tickets will have an opportunity to buy tickets this week. Applicants who were unsuccessful in the recent purchasing-process can try the sale ballot tomorrow, 15 January. General sale commences on Saturday, 19 January.
The Competition gets underway on 20 September, with Ireland getting their campaign underway two days later against Scotland.
Japan Rugby World Cup 2019 Organising Committee CEO Akira Shimazu urged fans to act quickly in order to avoid disappointment.
With less than 250 days to go before Asia’s first Rugby World Cup kicks off in Japan, it’s incredibly exciting to see the phenomenal response from rugby fans here in Japan and from across the world. The huge demand for tickets points to Rugby World Cup 2019 being a truly special tournament.
For anybody considering buying tickets for matches that still have availability I suggest you move as quickly as possible when first-come-first-served sales begin. The huge demand from domestic rugby fans unable to secure tickets for Japan matches will spread quickly to the tournament’s remaining matches. There are still some great tickets available and we want to ensure that we welcome as many foreign fans as possible for this once-in-a-lifetime tournament.
Traffic to the ticketing platform is anticipated to be extremely heavy and may result in delays in accessing the website. Further information about limited quantities of tickets that may be available on Rugby World Cup's resale platform will be forthcoming later in the year.
