In a couple of weeks, on the 27th of April you will be able to buy your Rugby World Cup 2011 tickets. This will be the seventh Rugby World Cup. New Zealand was selected as the host country in preference to Japan and South Africa. The event is scheduled to be played over seven weekends starting the 10th of September until the 23rd of October.

750,000 seats will be opened up to fans. Fans will be able to buy tickets for every group match at a particular venue or every group match by a particular team. Regarding individual match tickets they will go on sale in August, the tickets to semi-finals and final will happen in november.
New Zealand expects 85,000 international supporters at the tournament. The ticket sale was officially launched at a glitzy ceremony attended by the New Zealand Prime Minister John Key, who said the event could bring in $886 million to the country.
Another big sport event coming up!

    To introduce myself.
    I am Peter Mooney and I am the RWC 2011 Event Manger for the Hawke’s Bay Region which includes Napier where Canada, France and (probably) Japan will play pool games in RWC 2011.
    I am contracted to the regional Tourism and Economic Development agency and can provide any help or information that people may want as they plan their trip to the Tournament.
    I don’t have an affilliation to any particular operator or service provider so I can be impartial in the advice I give.
    If you want to stay in touch with developments in Hawke’s Bay in the lead up to the cup go to the blog at and register. You will then get monthly updates via email which will include advance information re tickets for festival events happenning during RWC 2011.

    RWC 2011 – will Japan be in Napier?

    This weekend we should find out which team wins the Asia Group and plays one of its matches in Napier. Japan have to be the hot favourites with a 100+ points win last match.

    The Brave Blossoms visited Hawke’s Bay a couple of years back for a match with NZ Maori when they were fabulous guests and both the team and the region really enjoyed their visit.
