RUGBY World Cup tickets will be on sale one year ahead of the competition for two weeks, organisers have confirmed.

Fans wanting to get their hands on tickets to see Scotland, Tonga, Georgia, Argentina and most likely Japan, as well as the other 44 games, will be able to do so in September this year.

Kingsholm will host four matches during the World Cup – Tonga v Georgia at noon on September 19, Scotland v Asia 1 at 2.30pm on September 19, Argentina v Georgia at 5pm on September 25, and the USA v Asia 1 on Sunday, October 11, 2015.

Japan are highly likely to fill the Asia 1 berth through qualifying rounds.

With 500 days to go until the start of the Tournament, England Rugby 2015, the organising committee for Rugby World Cup 2015, has today announced the dates of the general ticket sales window.Tickets for all 48 games will go on sale via an application window which opens on September 12 and closes on September 29, 2014, a year in advance of the tournament.

From September 12, members of the public will be able to select the matches they want to attend across the country and in Cardiff, with any oversubscribed matches balloted.

In advance of the general sale, 500,000 tickets will go on sale to rugby fans this month through the Rugby Community Ticket Programme launched earlier this year.

All clubs and RFU affiliated organisations in England will, from today, be able to register their nominated members to purchase tickets from May 16, 2014.

The programme gives clubs the opportunity to recognise and reward loyal fans who support the game week in week out in the host country for Rugby World Cup 2015.

A similar programme has also launched today in Wales giving Welsh rugby club members the chance to purchase tickets for the eight matches at the Millennium Stadium, given the important role the stadium will play at RWC 2015.
