Tickets for matches at the 2023 Rugby World Cup will be as low as €20 if an all-Ireland bid for the tournament is successful.
With a cross-border bid for the tournament on the table, the Republic’s Minister for Transport, Tourism and Sport Shane Ross also confirmed Ireland’s games will be broadcast for free.
Ross also revealed they’ve been asked by both World Rugby and football governing body UEFA to look at issues around ticket reselling.
“It’s something we have got to be conscious of,” he said. “It would be reputationally damaging to the state if there was ticket touting on a massive scale.”
Twelve venues have been put on a longlist as part of the Irish Government and Northern Ireland Executive’s bid to host the Rugby World Cup in September-October 2023.
