The first round of ticket sales for the upcoming 2011 Rugby World Cup in New Zealand will be available from tomorrow, January 1st 2010.
Fans worldwide will initially only be able to book tickets in the form of official travel packages, which in a nutshell means accommodation, travel, and match tickets.
The two agencies in New Zealand that have the franchise are House of Travel and Seasonz Travel, and they're expecting an overwhelming response.
"There's absolute demand from all parts of the world right now and we expect (the packages) to sell out very quickly," says Brent Thomas of House of Travel.
He says the packages will sell out rapidly, as they've already had enquiries from places like Argentina, South Africa, Europe and the US.
On February 1st corporate packages will go on sale, with venue and team packs becoming available in April. Individual tickets and the ballot for the semi-finals and final will be available later in the year.
