Weekly Expert Betting Tips - Join our free mailing listThe event is to be held in New Zealand, and is hotly anticipated by fans the world over. The prices are very similar to the prices that were paid by fans at the 2007 event, and the organisers are hoping for a high turnout at matches.
However, reports from New Zealand hint at bad news, with expected losses nearing the NZ$40 million mark, due to the negative financial climate. Tickets are expected to start at around NZ$30 for adults, and NZ$15 for children, with a ticket for the final to set you back an expected NZ$390 to NZ$1250.
Chief Executive for the tournament, Martin Snedden, is planning for the tournament to be a big and attractive event for families. Speaking to ESPN Scrum, he said: “We believe the ticketing policy will result in each match being played in full venues, showcasing New Zealand’s love of rugby and its place as a host of major international events.
“It will be a wonderful festival of rugby with an incredible atmosphere for 45 days throughout the whole country.” Favourites for the tournament are New Zealand, with sport betting specialists Betfair giving them 2.38 for being overall champions in 2011.
