One year before the start of RWC 2023 in France, more than 80% of all tickets have been sold. There’s going to be a lot of excitement for the event, so fans should hurry to buy tickets.
An extraordinary increase in attendance is expected at this affair for several reasons. First, it will be the big anniversary of the event. The RWC could be 200 years old in 2023. Because of this, many fans want to go to France to admire the new players and to experience the atmosphere of the competition, which will reign in the ring.
In addition, this could be a European rugby affair, because the last one was held in Japan and not all fans could buy tickets to fly so far away from home to the tournament. Although last time there were a lot of online spectators, this time a big influx of offline fans is expected.
You also have to consider the fact that this is one of the biggest sporting events since COVID-19 was loosened. Many sports fans are already just sitting at home and want to get out to the fan hangout. It’s a wonderful way to unwind for a weekend and watch your favorite game as a family.
Ticket sales are off the charts
Ticket sales for the Rugby World Cup 2023 are already breaking records. Although the event is still a year away, many seats are already booked and it will be very difficult to get a seat closer to the field. Moreover, nine out of 10 French people surveyed want and could follow the tournament online if they cannot attend it in person.
Specialists with the formation of fan seats are already planning to place additional fan zones with screens to satisfy the demand. In fact, they’re just perplexed because so many people are now interested in rugby and want to watch the game.
In addition, more than 60% of the hotels that are close to the main stadiums in France, where the annual rugby competition will take place, are already booked. These are incredible numbers for this competition. Therefore, it is possible that we could be watching one of the most colorful and large-scale games in the entire existence of the event.
Prices are expected to go up rugby
Ticket prices, due to the unstable economic situation in the European Union may rise sharply, so it is recommended to buy them now if you plan to attend the Rugby World Cup 2023. Tickets are currently priced from 10 euros but may go up to 20 euros.
Premium tickets at 550 euros per seat may go up to 600 euros.
