Ticket Applications for Rugby World Cup New Zealand 2011 Now Open!

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwire - Sept. 30, 2010) - The ticket application process for next year's Rugby World Cup in New Zealand is now open; with matches taking place throughout a range of venues at stadiums in Auckland and Christchurch as well as other cities across the North and South islands.

Tickets will be made available to rugby fans for all games except for semi-finals and the Final, which won't be released until the ballots in early 2011.

Event-owner and Tournament Director, Kit McConnell of Rugby World Cup Ltd, said: 'With applications for individual match tickets having opened; this is a very exciting time for New Zealanders and the global Rugby family alike'.

For those who plan to be a part of the momentous event, applications need to be completed and submitted as soon as possible, with the closing date for applications being Friday 8th October 2010 at 5pm (NZT). After this, they will be processed and there is no guarantee of tickets due to limited availability.

The news coincides with the announcement of kick-off times, which have been spaced out and spread across the many different locations throughout New Zealand from Whan Garei in the North Island right down to Dunedin in the South Island, which the organisers hope will help to create a festival atmosphere.

A spokesperson for Auto Europe, who specialise in discount car hire worldwide, commented: 'The organisers of the Rugby World Cup have definitely made the most of the opportunity to showcase their beautiful country to the world. At Auto Europe, we are looking forward to providing car hire New Zealand wide for visitors to the event, so that they can get around easily to enjoy matches as well as see more of the stunning scenery for those who are lucky enough to get tickets!'

Applicants will be notified as to whether or not they have been successful in obtaining tickets either on or before November 12th 2010.
