Am I right in thinking its Russia, Canada, Namibia, Tonga, Georgia and Uruguay who haven't released jerseys now then? Uruguay did promise theirs soon though


Exactly.

Lovely shirt. Would look great with white shorts, but a assume will also wear claret shorts.

Best batch of teams RWC shirts since 1995.

As an aside, I watched that WR film on Georgia, god that 2003 shirt was ghastly. As were many, though. Mid 90s to mid 2000s were bad times for shirts.

I like this shirt a lot. Some Georgian fans seem to not like it.I dont know why. I'll be getting it. This is a pro version of the jersey which has a slightly relaxed fit. The test version that the players will wear should be more body fitted. Also I am not sure why they are available to purchase before GRU even unveiled them.

Afaik shorts will be inverted. White for Home, Burgundy(or claret) for away.

If you watched it then you know we were happy we had shirts a all. :lol:

Because Companies usually have their plans on when to start selling. If they cut it too close to the world cup they lose sales, people already finish buying their merch by that time and there's a chance they would buy competitors jersey that's already available instead of canterbury ones. Plus at the end of summer sales usually, dip. Canterbury and GRU probably weren't in close communication so they waited, waited and in the end said fuck it, we aren't gonna lose money cause these guys don't want to unveil their shirts until the Christmas.

or that's my take on it anyway.

Yeah.GRU should have unveiled them by now. They replied to someone on facebook, saying that they'll unveil the kit in the near future, but can't say the exact date.

Is it available a statistic about the percentage of tickets already sold for every RWC match?
I suppose not, but it would be interesting. I've just seen that there are still tickets available for South Africa v Italy, for example

Tried to check viagogo but it's not reliable: no one match is sold out but all the ones I checked have just between 1% and 3% of tickets left. It's unlikely

FRI 20 SEP JAPAN V RUSSIA < 3% tickets left
SAT 21 SEP AUSTRALIA V FIJI < 1%
SAT 21 SEP FRANCE V ARGENTINA <2%
SAT 21 SEP NEW ZEALAND V SOUTH AFRICA <2%
SUN 22 SEP ITALY V NAMIBIA < 1%
SUN 22 SEP IRELAND V SCOTLAND < 1%
SUN 22 SEP ENGLAND V TONGA <2%
MON 23 SEP WALES V GEORGIA <2%
TUE 24 SEP RUSSIA V SAMOA < 3%
WED 25 SEP FIJI V URUGUAY < 3%
THU 26 SEP ITALY V CANADA < 2%
THU 26 SEP ENGLAND V USA < 2%
SAT 28 SEP ARGENTINA V TONGA < 1%
SAT 28 SEP JAPAN V IRELAND < 3%
SAT 28 SEP SOUTH AFRICA V NAMIBIA < 2%

Viagogo as a reselling platform should always have at least some tickets available, so that's probably not the best source as you stated. I've also read somewhere that all Japanese games were sold out. The higher percentage would probably agree with this, as those are the matches were resellers can actually make money from.

Last news I could find was that 1,44 out of 1,8 million tickets were sold at the 50 days to go mark.

Still it would be very interesting to see which tickets are still available. Maybe someone has a ticket account and can estimate how many tickets are left for the SA-Italy game (or others)

Look at the world ranking in July. Teams ranked 1-10 have to play one team from 11-20 (they don't play in a regular competition) away the next year. 11-20 play 21-30 away and so on. Yes, it really is that simple.

That’s roughly 81% of tickets sold with less than 2 months remaining. Should be able to reach 90% capacity at least by the time the tournament starts.

Thank you. 80% of tickets sold would be very good to me. I just hope those tickets are "really" sold, I mean to single interested spectators: sometime (moreover here in Italy) you read "we are near to the sold out!", and then you see empty stadiums... I don't know where's the bad trick in those cases.
The fact that the article dated August 1st says "85% of tickets sold" and the article dated August 10th says "80% of tickets sold" let think that we are still in front of a-bit-propagandistic numbers

Honestly, even if there is some confusion about the exact number, if you were to tell me 4 years ago Rugby World Cup in Japan would have sold at least 80% of all tickets I would have considered that a success. From memory capacity in 2015 was around 94%, 2011 was something like 87% and 2007 was around 92%. I'd need to research those figures to be more accurate but from memory capacity for each of those events were around those numbers.

Probably the same happened like here in this thread, when trg roughly calculated 81%. This figure would me give less worry than the 80% figure though, as 80% sounds way less accurate than 81% ;-)
What I found way more interesting was, the awareness figure. If 20 million watch a game of rugby on tv, it would be really strange, if they don't get to 90%. One out of 8,1% of those tv spectators are not a big number - especially as they don't even need to get those with all the travelling fans also picking up tickets.

So somebody has an account for the ticket pages? We are in the final phase "first come first serve" now.

Out of 48 matches, 3 appear sold out (Japan-Russia, South Africa-New Zealand, Japan-Scotland), 35 have "low disposability" of tickets and 10 have medium disposability

Not me, I should sell my house to cover the expenses :geek:

PS: out of percentages, 1440000 tickets sold for 48 games mean exactly 30,000 spectators per match.
If those announced numbers are correct it is a brilliant average crowd. By now, Italy struggle to gather 30,000 spectators even for the 6N matches

30,000 average at this stage is good news. The best the tournament can average is 37,500. If the tournament can get up to 34,000 - 35,000 that would give the tournament roughly 94% capacity. That would be well ahead of the 2011 World Cup in NZ, and just slightly behind 2003 in Australia. At the very least this is good news for not just Japan, but for hosting the World Cup in other T2 nations in the future. Ideally we'd have a system where we alternate having the World Cup in a traditional rugby nation, followed by a T2 nation. Good news for USA in 2027, and Russia if there's still plans to bid from there.
