England Rugby 2015 have just unveiled the official design that will feature on the tickets for the 48 World Cup matches, and we quite like them.
The five variations were revealed by Rugby World Cup 2003 winning captain, Martin Johnson, at Twickenham Stadium. The unique design celebrates Rugby and the rich history of the Tournament, featuring the Webb Ellis Cup at its centre, alongside four Rugby World Cup winning captains: John Eales (Australia), Francois Pienaar (South Africa), Martin Johnson (England) and Richie McCaw (New Zealand) representing the nations who have been victorious at previous Rugby World Cups.
The ticket blends the striking Tournament look and feel with two Rugby images representing the heritage of the Game in England. The four designs, developed in three colours, will be issued for all matches throughout the pool phase, Quarter and Semi-Finals as well as the Bronze Final.
A special gold design has also been developed for the Final and features one of the host nation’s most celebrated sporting moments, Jonny Wilkinson’s dramatic drop goal at the Final of Rugby World Cup 2003.
On unveiling the ticket design, Rugby World Cup 2003 winning captain Martin Johnson said, “It is an honour to feature as part of the ticket design for Rugby World Cup 2015. Winning in 2003 holds some very special memories for me. Everyone can remember where they were when Jonny kicked that drop goal, so it’s very apt that one of the host nation’s finest sporting moments is marked in the special ticket for the Final. Rugby World Cup 2015 looks set to be a great and global celebration of Rugby and with tickets still available for some great matches, there is still a chance for fans to be there.”
