Rugby World Cup 2015 Launches Official Ticket Resale Service

With six months to go to Rugby World Cup 2015, Tournament Organisers England Rugby 2015, has today confirmed details of the official resale service for Rugby World Cup 2015 match tickets, which will launch next week through tickets.rugbyworldcup.com.

The service will allow fans to sell tickets for any matches they can no longer attend, at face value, through a secure, transparent and authorised system.
 
From 1200 GMT on Tuesday March 24, fans with tickets they can no longer use will be able to log into their existing ticketing account to select the match and seat(s) that they wish to post for resale. Once posted for resale, tickets will then be released to the general public to purchase at tickets.rugbyworldcup.com from Tuesday March 31 onwards.
 
Chief Executive of England Rugby 2015, Debbie Jevans, said: “We are pleased to offer an official resale service through tickets.rugbyworldcup.com which will allow fans to sell their Rugby World Cup 2015 tickets securely and at face value. The service provides support to fans who wish to sell tickets for matches they can no longer attend and also provides fans with the ability to search for any tickets they may have missed out on during the ballot.  With interest and demand continuing to grow for Rugby World Cup 2015, fans should only buy tickets from official sources to ensure their ticket is valid for entry at Rugby World Cup 2015 matches.”

The simple resale service, which is free to use, allows fans to choose which tickets they want to sell. This self-service option will keep fans informed of the status of their tickets with updates throughout the posting and resale process. Fans can also log into their account at any stage and withdraw tickets from resale should they change their mind.
 
Any ticket posted for resale from March 24 – March 30 will not be released for sale until 1000 BST Tuesday March 31. This is to ensure all fans have the same opportunity to buy any tickets for matches that have been unavailable since the ballot.
 
Beyond March 31 any ticket posted for resale will appear on the website, tickets.rugbyworldcup.com, within 72 hours.  
 
Posting a ticket for resale does not guarantee a sale; the seller will only receive payment if the ticket is purchased. If the ticket is sold the selling customer will receive an email notification to confirm the sale.
 
The official resale programme will launch on March 24 and run up to and during the Tournament. There will be a 24 hour cut-off point prior to a match when, if a ticket hasn’t been sold, it will remain the property of the selling fan and made available for them to use to attend the match.  
 
Tickets for 10 Rugby World Cup 2015 matches are still on sale at tickets.rugbyworldcup.com and via the official travel (domestic and international) and hospitality programmes. More details on these programmes can be found at www.rugbyworldcup.com/ticketing.  

In order to enjoy the best possible spectator experience  and not be let down or misled, Rugby World Cup 2015 are urging fans to only buy tickets from official sources. For more information and to check whether a company or certain website is an official RWC2015 channel, fans can use an ‘Official Checker’ tool located at www.rugbyworldcup.com/buyofficial.
