Tickets sales on track

Rugby New Zealand 211 Ltd chief executive Martin Snedden has said that key World Cup match ticket sales and revenue targets had been met in 21. Since the sales program was launched earlier this year, 864, tickets have been sold, nearly two-thirds of the overall target of 1.45 million sales across the 48 matches. About 662, of those have been sold through RNZ 211’s global public ticket phases. Ticket sales revenue totals $166 million. “This is a very good position to be in with 267 days to go until kickoff,” Snedden said. “We are on track to achieve the forecast total ticket sales revenue of $268 million.”
