Monday, May 1 marks the 100-day countdown to the Women’s Rugby World Cup and to celebrate the largest women’s international sporting event to take place in Ireland this year, a limited number of additional tickets for previously sold-out fixtures have been released via Ticketmaster.
The first of the Women’s Rugby World Cup pool games, which take place in Dublin on August 9, 13 and 17, will see reigning World champions England meet Spain, while hosts Ireland get their campaign underway against Australia at 7pm that evening.
Excitement is building throughout the country as the Women’s Rugby World Cup trophy has already covered over 8,500km visiting more than 100 clubs and schools, with many more events to come.
Tournament organisers expect that additional tickets will soon sell out for these venues, and urged those wanting to experience the excitement of a World Cup, and watch the world’s top female rugby players, to snap up tickets as soon as possible.
Speaking of the countdown, Garrett Tubridy, tournament director for Women’s Rugby World Cup 2017, said: “With 100 days to go to the kick-off of the Women’s Rugby World Cup, the final preparations are well underway for what is going to be a fantastic tournament and a great spectacle of women’s sport.
“The trophy tour events and festivals, which have been hosted in clubs and schools throughout the county, show the level of excitement that is out there, and we are delighted to have sourced a small number of additional tickets for previously sold-out pool fixtures. But those looking to secure tickets, should act fast.”
