Tournament organisers, England Rugby 2015, today (15/5) announced that the Rugby Community Ticket Sale for Rugby World Cup 2015 will now launch on Thursday May 29 at 1pm.
The live sale date has been moved from Friday May 16 (tomorrow), following a request today 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 September 29 2014 - these dates were announced last week, and have not changed.
