Rugby World Cup 2015 in Devon

Posted on September 15th 2015 by

Following a couple of my blog entries last year and earlier this year the Rugby World Cup is almost here and the excitement is building throughout Devon and the UK as a whole. 30 minutes down the road the historic City of Exeter is proud to be hosting three of the matches for Rugby World Cup 2015 at Sandy Park (the home of the Exeter Chiefs)

I wasn’t sure how the World Cup would effect tourism in my town of Torquay but interest in late September and early October has been phenomenal as many Rugby fans take advantage of visiting the South West to explore other areas including Torbay and the popular Cornish Resorts. Many guests already booked in with us have said one of the key reasons they have chosen to visit Exeter and Devon for The World Cup is that the City is ideally located close to two areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty, namely the gorgeous landscapes of Dartmoor National Park and the beautiful UNESCO World Heritage Jurassic Coast.

Tickets went on sale the other day and so many of my friends were lucky enough to acquire some fantastic seats. I am hoping to try and get to at least one match (if I can have the time off) although if it remains this busy I think I may well be enjoying the matches from The Meadfoot Bay hotel bar in Torquay.  :)

The Sandy Park confirmed match schedule and dates are :

Rugby World Cup - Tonga vs Nambia - 29th September 2015 - Sandy Park Exeter, Kick Off - 16:45

Rugby World Cup - Nambia vs Georgia (7/10/2015) - Sandy Park Exeter, Kick Off - 20:00
