Rugby World Cup 2011 will be held across New Zealand over a six-week period in September and October 2011. Twenty countries will participate in the 48-game tournament. Ticket prices for the tournament remain a closely guarded secret but will be based on international prices.
He had earlier claimed ticket prices for the knockout games would be “in excess of anything seen in New Zealand before”, similar to those when France hosted the Cup in 2007, where the final sold for 200 to 600 euros ($490 to $1470).
RNZ 2011 is due to name the pool match venues in March 2009, with a shortlist of team base options confirmed by June 2009.
