Don’t Miss out: How to Get Tickets to the Rugby World Cup 2019 This Month

The third phase of general ticket sales to the 2019 Rugby World Cup taking place in Japan between 20 September – 2 November 2019 opens at 10:00am London time on Saturday, 18 May.

There will then be one more opportunity for fans to obtain tickets through the Official Resale Service, which is scheduled to start on Friday, 31 May 2019.

The 2019 Rugby World Cup will be Asia’s first Rugby World Cup and will feature the 20 best teams in the world competing for the Webb Ellis Cup over a six week period.

One of the most exciting teams to look out for in the tournament will be the host nation itself, which is one of rugby’s most successful up and comers after their historic 34-32 win over South Africa in the 2015 Rugby World Cup. They will kick off the tournament on Friday, 20 September against Russia.

How can I get tickets?

  • Register for a ticketing account to ensure entry into the public ballots on the RWC Website.
  • On 18 May at 10am, log into your account on the RWC Website and purchase tickets.
  • On 31 May, log into your account on the RWC Website and purchase tickets through the Official Resale Service. This is the official re-sale site and tickets will be available at face value.
  • If you don’t get the tickets you want on 18 or 31 May, you can visit secondary market websites like Rugby Ticket Service to see what is on offer (note this is not the officially approved RWC method of resale). Check back frequently to see whether new tickets have been posted.

How much do they cost?

Tickets prices vary throughout the tournament, but as is the case at any major sporting event, prices increase towards the latter stages of the competition as teams progress through the tournament to the final stages.

By way of example, tickets for England vs Argentina, Ireland vs Scotland and Australia vs Wales are also available for £49 .

For fans wishing to watch match between southern-hemisphere giants like New Zealand and South Africa, £70 is the cheapest priced ticket available.

Cheapest tickets for all Quarter-final matches are £70, with Semi-final tickets starting at £105.

At the moment tickets for the final are only available on the secondary market (e.g. websites like Rugby Ticket Service, Viagogo and Ticket Events Holding), with the cheapest tickets ranging between £1,332 and websites such as Ticket Events Holding charging £910 for a ticket to the final. However, more tickets may be released.
