Next year's Rugby World Cup takes place in England and Wales, and on 12 September, tickets will go on general sale to rugby fans around the world.

England's young team will carry high expectations into an incredibly tricky group that pits them against Australia, Wales, Fiji and a play-off winner, with just two teams going through to the knockout stages.

Ireland, meanwhile, have a slightly easier job against Six Nations foes Italy and France as well as Canada and Romania, while Scotland will face South Africa, Samoa, Japan and the USA.

Below is all the information you'll need to get your tickets...

How & Where To Buy

Tickets go on sale on 12 September at 10am until 29 September but before any money changes hands, you have to set up an account with the official Rugby World Cup website and apply for the tickets you want. You can set up your account here.

Applications will not be accepted or denied on a first-come, first-serve basis. Instead, they will be entered into a ballot with successful applications being granted tickets. Tickets left over will be put into a real-time, more traditional sale in November.
