Brisbane WC games moved
Friday 8th November 2002  |  More News

All of Brisbane’s games at next year’s rugby union World Cup have been moved to Suncorp Stadium following overwhelming demand for tickets.

Ballymore was scheduled to host five games but General Manager of Rugby World Cup 2003 Matt Carroll said demand for tickets already exceeds supply for four of the games.

Ballymore has a capacity of 21,000, but the decision will allow another 150,000 people to attend the Brisbane games.

“This enormous demand for tickets really left us with no option,” Carroll said. “The choices were to turn tens of thousands of people away, or to ensure as many people as possible could have access to this tournament.

“Indications are that we expect to fill the public ticket allocation for most of these matches at the 52,500 seat Suncorp Stadium, which is a great outcome for everyone.”

The matches to be moved from Ballymore to Suncorp Stadium are:

11 October - France v Fiji
15 October - Fiji v Repechage 1 (USA, Russia, Spain or Tunisia)
20 October - Scotland v Repechage 1
1 November - South Africa v Samoa
2 November - England v Uruguay
