Top-end rugby 2015 World Cup final tickets set to reach £715

The rugby union World Cup 2015 chief executive, Debbie Jevans, has suggested that top-end final tickets are to cost in the region of £715.

The top-end ticket is to cost £75 more than the 2011 final in New Zealand at the last World Cup.

Jevans, who was the director of sport at the 2012 London Olympics, said: "You don't have to have a top price if you are going to have accessibility lower down and I am passionate about having these lower prices.

"There is a guarantee that we have to hit and to do that there are going to have to be some high prices. What is equally important is that we are going to ensure that we have accessibility, that we do have entry price of £15 for pool matches and we are committed to £7. But to have that accessibility there are going to have to be some top-heavy prices."

World Cup organisers have made an £80 million revenue guarantee to the International Rugby Board (IRB).
