Almost one million tickets for next year's Rugby World Cup in England will go on sale to the general public in the United Kingdom and across the globe tomorrow.
The tickets for the 48 matches will be available through an application process that is due to run until September 29 and will be priced from £7 ($11/€9) for children and from £15 ($24/€19) for adults, with passes to the final costing up to £715.00 ($1,160/€900) for adults.
Fans will need to create an account on the website to apply and tickets will not be sold on a first come, first served basis.
Oversubscribed matches and price categories will go to ballot to ensure fair allocation and fans will be advised of the tickets they have successfully been allocated in October this year, while a "traffic light" indicator system on the website will show which matches are receiving large volumes of applications and are likely to go to ballot.
Any remaining tickets will be sold on a first come, first served basis from November.
"This is an exciting moment as up to one million tickets go on sale for Rugby World Cup 2015," Debbie Jevans, chief executive of England Rugby 2015, said.
"As we approach a year to go, it's the moment that rugby fans all around the world have been waiting for.
"We have worked hard to develop a ticketing system which makes the application process easy and efficient as possible, and offers flexibility to fans.
"Fans have 17 days to apply, so there is no rush and they should take time to consider what they would like to purchase."
The general sale comes after the Rugby Community Ticket sales campaign in England and Wales in May and follows on from the launch of the "Too Big To Miss" ticketing campaign launched at the start of September with an "ultimate team talk" video starring Charles Dance, which has now been watched by nearly two million people.
"September 12 is the moment that rugby fans around the world have been waiting for and a significant milestone for Rugby World Cup 2015," Bernard Lapasset, International Rugby Board chairman, added.
"With a little over a year to go, England 2015 promises to be a wonderful and record-breaking global celebration of Rugby in the host nation."
Rugby World Cup 2015, which will be played in 13 venues across England and in Cardiff at the Millennium Stadium, is due to get underway on September 18 next year and is scheduled to continue until the final at Twickenham Stadium on October 31.
