Rugby World Cup

St. James' Park will play host to three Rugby World Cup 2015 matches, and fans can now begin planning their experience following the announcement of the ticketing programme for rugby's showpiece event.

With less than two years to go until rugby's showpiece event touches down in England, ticket prices for RWC 2015 have been made as affordable as possible, with some tickets available for as low as £7 for children and £15 for adults.

Here at Newcastle, a family of four will be able to watch world champions New Zealand in action at St. James' Park for as little as £130.

More than two million tickets will go on sale next year, with around one million priced at £100 or less and half-a-million at £50 or less. Tickets will be distributed in five phases in 2014;

1st January, 2014 Travelling Fan Packages on sale Ticket-inclusive tour packages for supporters will go on sale through Official Travel Agents, including in England.
1st February, 2014 Hospitality Packages on sale Official hospitality packages offering a range of different matchday experiences go on sale.
May/June 2014 Rugby Fans Through Rugby Clubs programme Fans who are members of rugby clubs in England will have the opportunity to purchase tickets through their clubs.
September 2014 General sale: ballot Tickets will go on general sale to the public via a ballot.
November/December 2014 General sale: real time Any remaining tickets left over from the ballot will then go on sale on a first come, first served basis.

Newcastle is set for a spectacular six-week celebration of rugby which will give fans, who support the game week in week out, a good chance to secure their place at the tournament when tickets go on sale through rugby clubs.

The ballot will then provide a fair way for the general public to access tickets and bring new people into the game. With this in mind, tickets have been made as accessible as possible, so that everyone can make their plans to join in one of the biggest sporting events in the world.

RWC 2015 will be a truly nationwide tournament with 13 venues hosting a total of 48 matches. At St. James' Park, fans can look forward to seeing three matches, including Scotland v South Africa:
