Rugby World Cup: September date remains in place for general sale
Organisers of next year's Rugby World Cup have postponed the date of their live ticket sale launch after problems with the online booking system run by distribution partner Ticketmaster.
The live sale of tickets, scheduled to start on Friday, May 16, has now been put back until 1pm on Thursday, May 29.
In a statement, England Rugby 2015 said: "The live sale date has been moved
following a request from Ticketmaster for more time to test the online ticketing system they are providing to ensure that rugby fans have the best possible experience when booking tickets.
"The new sale date also gives rugby clubs more time to register their members
on the system for the 500,000 tickets available.
"The Rugby Community Ticketing Programme will now run from May 29 to July 2, 2014. Up to a million tickets will go on general sale from September 12 to 29, these dates were announced last week, and have not changed."
