Rugby World Cup 2011 - make sure you get only the official tickets!
Don’t be let down – ensure you only purchase Rugby World Cup 2011 tickets and ticket-inclusive packages from official ticket sales channels
Rugby New Zealand 2011 is advising consumers to take caution when buying their Rugby World Cup tickets and make sure they are from legitimate sources.
A number of entities are offering Rugby World Cup 2011 tickets and ticket-inclusive packages for sale without authorisation to do so. Rugby World Cup Limited would like
to emphasise to all Rugby supporters that they should only purchase tickets or ticket inclusive packages from the following official ticket sales channels to ensure they
receive genuine and valid tickets:
- Individual tickets can be purchased from Rugby New Zealand 2011 Limited (the Tournament Organisers) from late 2010. See their website for details.
- Official travel packages (including match tickets) can be purchased from one of the appointed Official Travel Agents, details of which are available at the Rugby Travel and Hospitality website.
- Official hospitality packages (including match tickets) can be purchased from one of the appointed Official Corporate Hospitality Agents, details of which are available at the Rugby Travel and Hospitality website. Supporters purchasing tickets or ticket-inclusive packages from unofficial sources run the risk of tickets not arriving, receiving counterfeit tickets or having their tickets cancelled (and being refused entry to or evicted from match venues).
Match tickets are non-transferable except as set out in the Rugby World Cup 2011 Ticket General Terms and Conditions. Specific legislation has also been passed in New Zealand to prohibit ticket scalping and offering, giving away, or selling a match ticket in connection with the promotion of goods or services without the authorisation of Rugby World Cup Limited.
