TICKETS BY TEAM OR BY CITY
In the first sale phase from 15 March, tickets will be sold in two formats, either by city or by team.
The Follow My Team pack includes all four pool matches from a qualified team, with the possibility to add an optional quarter-final should the team makes it to the knockout phase. Twelve Follow My Team packs will be available, one for each qualified nation.
The City Pack includes either three or all pool matches in each of the nine host cities. In the ‘three matches’ format, fans will need to select two fixtures in addition to one compulsory. Only the opening match won’t be available in this format.
On the comprehensive ‘all matches’ City pack, rugby fans will be able to attend all pool matches in the host city of their choice, except for Saint-Denis (Stade de France).
A PACK FOR EVERY BUDGET
Rugby’s showcase men’s event will be accessible to all thanks to four different price categories. With a Toulouse pack, fans will be able to attend three fixtures, including matches for Japan and New Zealand, from €58 in category four, while the Lille pack will feature three matches including England, Scotland and France for €70.
Follow My Team packs have been designed to make the tournament accessible to all. For €135, Fiji fans will be able to watch all of their team’s pool matches, following them across France, with the possibility of choosing an optional quarter-final, subject to their team’s qualification for the knockout phase.
