Since the announcement of the Rugby World Cup 2023 match schedule on 26 February, and the announcement of a blockbuster opening game between France and New Zealand, 200,000 new fans have joined the 2023 Family. With two and a half years to go to the tournament, this success confirms Rugby World Cup 2023 has captured the imagination of fans in France and around the world, reinforcing the mantra that France is the place to be in 2023.  

The 2023 Family now has 400,000 members.


With the official Rugby World Cup 2023 ticketing website now operational, we remind the public that by signing-up to the 2023 Family, members will gain access to an exclusive presale period starting 15 March, 2021 at 12:00 CET. To participate in this presale, fans worldwide are invited to create their account on before 13 March at 23:59 CET.  

From 15 March, two products will be made available to 2023 Family members: Follow my Team packs and City packs. These same products will then be available to the general public from 6 April at 18:00 CET, on the official ticketing site.

As a reminder, Mastercard, Worldwide Partner for Rugby World Cup 2023, will offer its cardholders a priority access to the first three days of the presale. From 15 and 17 March, only members of the 2023 Family paying with a Mastercard will be able to purchase RWC 2023 packs.
