Tournament organisers for the seventh Rugby World Cup are forecasting that on the basis of offshore ticket sales to date New Zealand can expect 95,000 international visitors to arrive during the Tournament which kicks off in exactly one month on Friday, September 9.

Previous estimates released last year had put the expected number of visitors at 85,000.

“This is tremendous news and a real sign of just how big Rugby World Cup 2011 (RWC 2011) will be for our country,” said RNZ 2011 CEO Martin Snedden.

“The upsurge in support from overseas fans is a strong sign of confidence in our ability to host the biggest sporting event New Zealand has ever held.

“It also underlines what we have always said; that this Tournament brings multiple economic benefits to our country as well as providing a priceless opportunity to show the best of New Zealand to the world.”
