The Rugby World Cup organizers revealed that they had broken the record for ticket sales at a tournament.
England Rugby 2015 confirmed they had surpassed the 2.25 million tickets bought for the 2007 RWC in France, four days before the event kicks off.
Now 94 per cent of the tournament’s 2.45 million tickets have been shifted.
Organizers have always set themselves the target of selling out the World Cup but, as of Sunday, tickets remained on sale for 32 of the tournament’s 48 matches, mainly in the higher-price categories.
The only England game with tickets left was their final Pool A clash with Uruguay at Manchester’s Etihad Stadium, each costing approximately $835 Fijian dollars.
There were none available for the hosts’ potential quarter-final, semi-final or final.
Meanwhile the Vodafone Flying Fijians take on England at 7am this Saturday.
You can watch the entire tournament live on FBC TV.
