Over 2.5million tickets will be made available for the 2023 Rugby World Cup in France, with competition organisers pledging it will be the most accessible tournament in history.

Tickets for the tournament in France will go on sale from March 15, with a pre-sales period set up for fans who have registered to join the “2023 Family” portal by March 13.

In total, 2.6million tickets will be available for the World Cup, with the action taking place across nine cities.

Matches will be located within a two-hour journey for 80 per cent of the French public and, as a result, organisers believe it will be the most accessible tournament to date.

Tickets will go on sale from March 15 at 11am UK time and that pre-sales period will run until April 5.

Fans will be able to buy team and city packages on a first-come, first-served basis for the pool stage matches.

General sales will then open on April 6, with the cheapest packages starting at €58 (£50) for all pool matches in Toulouse.

“Our ambition, in partnership with our friends at the France 2023 organising committee, is to make France 2023 the most accessible tournament to date,” World Rugby chairman Bill Beaumont said in a statement.

“This ticketing programme certainly does that. Everyone is invited to join a special celebration of France and 200 years of rugby.

“Fans will also be able to buy tickets through one of the 24 official travel agents who have 200,000 tickets reserved for the tournament.”
