Tickets for the knockout stages of the Women’s Rugby World Cup, which takes place later this year in France, are now on sale.
The semi-finals will take place at Stade Jean Bouin in Paris on Wednesday, August 13 with the final being played at the same venue on Sunday, August 17.
Tickets, which are priced from as low as just €;5, are now available to fans by clicking here.
The pool draw, made last October, pitted Ireland in Pool B alongside 2010 Women’s Rugby World Cup champions New Zealand, Kazakhstan and the USA.
Interestingly, Ireland beat both the Americans and Kazakhstan in the pool stages of the last Rugby World Cup four years ago in England.
The girls in green beat a much-fancied USA team 22-12 in their first game and went on to defeat Kazakhstan 37-3.
They then lost to the USA in the fifth-eighth place play-offs before winning the seventh-eighth place play-off clash where they got the better of Scotland.
The 2014 tournament runs from August 1-17 in Paris, with the pool stages being played at the FFR headquarters in Marcoussis and the final stages to be held at Jean Bouin, the home of Stade Francais.
IRB Chairman Bernard Lapasset said: “Preparations for the Women’s Rugby World Cup are on track and excitement is really starting to build, especially after some great matches in the Women’s Six Nations at the weekend.
“It really comes to life when fans can buy tickets, and start to plan their trips to Paris in August to see some great rugby at the Stade Jean Bouin.”
FFR President Pierre Camou added: “With the Women’s Rugby World Cup, the FFR’s objective is to organise a high level competition, but also to promote Women’s rugby.
“That is why we want to offer fans a great feast of Women’s rugby over two exceptional days that will close this magnificent competition.”
The 12 teams will meet at the 2014 Women’s Rugby World Cup in Paris, with match days on August 1, 5, 9, 13 and 17.
