Hi Folks, I was wondering if there are many Connacht fans planning on the World Cup next year? I assume that there will be sprinkling of ye able to gather the funds together! My friend and I are planning our costs at the moment.

It might be beneficial for us to all place our trip plans together here so that we can get better (and of course it goes without saying cheaper!) deals on interenal flights/trian journeys, acccommodation etc. The only way to get the itckets is through the official means on the Japan World Cup site to which I have registered and I currently have booked myself in for 3 of the group matches plus the QF and SF (Yes I am being very positive as always!). Hope that I get some traction going here.

Unfortunately my plans are largely sofa based for this world cup. Reckon Japan would be incredible, very jealous of anyone going

Yeah i'm going.
Last phase I applied for the 4 group games, with the option to upgrade and down grade. Didn't want to commit to quarter and semi's incase i'd be left with 12 category A tickets.
I ended up getting Russia and Samoa. Think that's worked in my favour as I now can apply for Quarter and Semi final tickets.
First game is 22/9/19 and semi final is 27/10/19 which is 5 weeks in Japan but cutting out the first 2 games will save me (money on accomadation and food etc) 12 days in Japan.
On the other side tho, its annoying that I didn't get Ireland vs Scotland as the website is saying "mid demand" on that game. I suppose people applied and turned the tickets down. Demand for Ireland vs Japan is without surprise "high demand" (if any ticket is left at all). The gap between the Scotland game and Russia game is 12 days if you don't have tickets to the Japan game.
I've applied for those 2 games on seperate account to the quarter and semi; and will turn down the Scotland game if I dont get Japan game.
From a supporters point of view the Scotland game is at International Stadium Yokohama, has a track around it and quiet a distance between the pitch and supporters. The tickets are not fan friendly either. 2 main stands running length of the pitch are Category A at 232 Euro each, and category B, C and D all behind the dead ball line, priced 170 Euro, 108 Euro and 54 Euro. The price diifference Vs view difference is crazy.

That's great news mollz265! I have tickets for all of the group matches (except Scotland) and hoping that a contact of mine replies to let me know what is the best accommodation to go for. He currently lives in Japan (approx 6 months now) and would have a good idea of where is best.

Myself and a mate are planing on going. Unfortunately the timing of the RWC and work does not suit, so the best I can do is the first two group games, which thankfully are the better games. I have applied for Scotland and Japan. I have also decided the New Zealand v South Africa game would be worth going to also. Fingers crossed.

I'm going. I got (Category D) tickets for Ireland's Group games in the ballot. Seems, from previous posts, these may be some distance from the action! I went to Japan for the soccer World Cup and it was a great trip, Roy Keane and Saipan not withstanding.

I only got a ticket for the Ireland v Russia group match. Very hard to get those tickets for the high demand matches! There is another opportunity before they go on general sale in January (i.e. there is a 2-day window from 15th to 17th Jan) for us to get our ideal match tickets. Let's keep our fingers crossed..

Hey folks

Im contemplating making the trip given all the postitivity around the Irish team at mo has me on a buzz, plus making a holiday of it! Was looking at packages but they seem extortionate altho would prob save a lot of hassle alrite as tickets are guaranteed albeit Cat D in most.

So have been looking at doing diy trip, return trip for 2 weeks to take in qtrs & semis, flights are pretty reasonable.
Had a look at hotels in Tokyo & Yokohama which dont look too bad either.
Challenge will be the tickets I think, I did apply in ballot but no luck. So hoping I can grab some in general sale in January!

Will check bk here if I do pull the trigger on the trip, be grt to meet some other Clan members over there!

Tickets on sale again for those who didn’t get what they wanted in last round. I was given a link to skip the really slow queue and got quarter final tickets. Only cat A tickets left for the semi, I’m planning to be in Japan for semi so hopefully pick up tickets closer to the time
