Up to a million tickets for England 2015 will go on sale tomorrow via an application window that will run until September 29.
It means that tickets will not be sold on a first come, first served basis and that fans can apply for tickets at any point between September 12 and 29. Fans will need to create an account on the website in order to apply however.
Ireland have been drawn in Pool D alongside France, Italy, Canada and Romania and they kick off their Rugby World Cup campaign against the Canadians at the Millennium Stadium on September 19 of next year.
For the duration of the tournament’s pool stages, Ireland will have four team bases – St. George’s Park, Surrey Sports Park, Sports Wales National Centre and Celtic Manor/Newport.
Ticket prices will range from £7 for children and £15 for adults, and oversubscribed matches will be balloted to ensure fair allocation. Fans will be able to apply for up to four tickets per match, and fans will know if they have successfully purchased tickets by October.
Debbie Jevans, Chief Executive of the tournament said: “This is an exciting moment as up to one million tickets go on sale for Rugby World Cup 2015. As we approach a year to go, it’s the moment that rugby fans all around the world have been waiting for.”
Remaining tickets will then go on sale on general release in November.

September 19 – Ireland v Canada – Millennium Stadium
September 27 – Ireland v Romania – Wembley Stadium
October 4 – Ireland v Italy – Olympic Stadium
October 11 – Ireland v France – Millennium Stadium
