Rugby World Cup tickets will go on general sale from Friday, September 12 until Monday, September 29, 2014, it has been announced.

Fans will need to create an account on tickets.rugbyworldcup.com in order to apply, and can apply for up to four tickets per match.

Tickets will not be sold on a first come, first served basis, while over-subscribed matches and price categories will go to ballot to ensure fair allocation.

“The Tournament is now just over one year away and the rugby world is counting down to Rugby World Cup 2015,” said Debbie Jevans, CEO of England Rugby 2015.

" We have worked hard to develop a ticketing system which makes the application process easy and efficient, and offers flexibility to fans.

"Prices start at £15 for adults and £7 for children. With 13 match venues situated in host cities all over England and in Cardiff, it's a great opportunity for the whole nation to watch the best teams in the world compete for rugby's most prestigious prize.”

Fans will be informed of which tickets they have been successful in purchasing in October. Any remaining tickets will be sold on a first come, first served basis from November.

Fans must only buy from official sources to avoid ticket fraud. Only tickets purchased at tickets.rugbyworldcup.com or through official travel and hospitality providers will guarantee entry to World Cup matches.

England Rugby 2015 will launch an official Rugby World Cup 2015 resale platform next year to enable customers to sell any unwanted tickets at face value.
