RWC Sevens 2018 fans urged not to miss out following strong first week of ticket sales

first_imgIn the first seven days since tickets were released onto the market, an incredible 13,416 three-day packages (that’s a record 40,248 tickets altogether) have been sold via the tournament website. Already, fans from every single state in the USA have bought tickets with the majority of them coming from California. Further afield, supporters in Canada and the UK are represented well but, amazingly, tickets have been bought from a total of 36 nations, indicating that RWC Sevens 2018 is going to have a truly international feel.With thousands more supporters from the Bay Area, throughout North America and around the world expected to seek tickets, they are being urged not to delay any longer or else they could be left empty-handed.USA Rugby CEO Dan Payne said: “We knew this would be a popular tournament. The importance we are placing on delivering a successful event and how that ties with growing the game in America can’t be overstated. The first week of ticket sales has exceeded even our own, lofty, expectations. The risk now is that fans who don’t act fast could actually miss out so we’re publishing this appeal for everyone who wants to see the world’s best sevens players in action at the highest level to go to the website today and book their seats.“This is a major priority for USA Rugby. We want the world to see that we can put on a great show and make RWC Sevens 2018 the biggest and best one so far. This is a once-off opportunity for rugby lovers in San Francisco and elsewhere in the US to be a part of this amazing tournament right here on American soil.“It’s also about showcasing rugby sevens to a generation of new American fans, who love to attend big live sporting occasions but who maybe haven’t been to a rugby event before. We think they will be blown away by the excitement, athleticism and skill on display in AT&T Park. But they’d better move quickly because tickets are disappearing fast.”last_img
