World Cup ticket applications reached 325,000
Rugby fans worldwide have applied for 325,000 tickets worth over $55 million for next year’s World Cup in New Zealand. Rugby New Zealand 2011 chief executive Martin Snedden says that’s the equivalent of filling the redeveloped Eden Park more than five times over. The figure includes 190,000 tickets applied for since applications to the general public opened on Tuesday. The figure does not include 85,000 tickets already sold as part of the official travel and hospitality packages.

Work being found for Maori wardens at Rugby World Cup

He told Waatea News it makes sense to include them in planning for the cup. Some districts are more advanced than others and the response from Maori wardens has been extremely positive.
