Irish Women’s Rugby World Cup to take place in August
Ireland’s three pool games in the Women’s Rugby World Cup in August have been sold out, the organisers of the event have confirmed, which is great for the sport.
The games against Australia (9 August), Japan (13 August) and France (17 August), which all take place at the UCD Bowl, have been sold out by the supporters. All three games will be shown live on RTÉ2.
A small number of extra tickets have been added for Billing Park UCD, where top ranked seeds New Zealand, England and Canada, amongst others, will feature over the three pool match-days.
Tournament Director of the Rugby World Cup Garrett Tubridy said they are “absolutely delighted” with the interest and urged supporters to really get behind their team during the competition.
Tickets are sold per venue, per day, with supporters gaining access to all three matches taking place in that venue that day.
Meanwhile, Ireland’s official World Cup jersey was officially launched by Canterbury this week for the first time ever for a women’s jersey.
