World Cup tickets selling despite venue uncertainty
By Hamish McNeilly
Uncertainty over which Dunedin venue will host Rugby World Cup 2011 matches has not hampered tournament ticket applications, chief executive Martin Snedden said yesterday. Addressing more than than 50 domestic and international journalists at the Tourism Rendezvous New Zealand conference in Auckland, Mr Snedden said the stadium would be “spectacular”.
Rugby World Cup 2011 festival director Briony Ellis said organisers were also working on delivering a national festival in the lead-up to the tournament. The programme would eventually include 1000 events, with more than 100 already confirmed in the Southern region… Details of the festival would be officially launched on September 9.
