1. Plan your flight
You can be at key matches, or follow the action every step of the way, with a charter from Atlas Helicopters. Cardiff is only an hour away from London by helicopter, so why risk the traffic and delays when you can arrive in style and comfort, following a journey almost as mesmerising as the matches you are about to see?
With some of the stadiums accommodating 80-90,000 people, the atmosphere will be fantastic but the weight of traffic is likely to be heavy – in fact it is going to be a scrum down there!
Let the Operations Team at Atlas Helicopters organise your whole trip, from doorstep to your stadium seat, from hotel booking to evening entertainment.
Every item on your itinerary can be taken care of, letting you and your party concentrate on the action.
Contact Atlas Helicopters on 01256 635000 and watch the sporting event of the year.
The World Cup Venues
Matches in the 2015 Rugby World Cup will take place in 13 venues across the UK.
Some of the most high profile stadia in the country are on this list, including the iconic Olympic Stadium, Wembley Stadium, and Cardiff’s Millennium Stadium.
With a capacity of 90,000 Wembley Stadium is the largest on this list; the biggest stadium in England and the second biggest in Europe.
It’s seen plenty of rugby in the past, and Wales will be on familiar turf, having played the most games here of all the World Cup teams.
The Millenium Stadium will be familiar to rugby fans. With room for 74,154 screaming fans, it has seen major finals play out here for both rugby and football.
Wales have two matches here, against Fiji and Uruguay, and will be hoping to storm to victory in front of the home crowd and return to the pitch for one of the two quarter-final matches hosted in Cardiff.
St James’ Park in Newcastle will be one to watch, with matches seeing New Zealand take on Tonga and Scotland up against South Africa and Samoa. The first match at St James’ Park was hosted in 1880, and the ground has gone on to have an eventful sporting history, as well as being the location of famous concerts by artists including Bob Dylan and Bruce Springsteen.
The world’s largest dedicated rugby ground, Twickenham is the place where some of the hottest action will take place.
Expect epic battles as France clash with Italy and England face off with Wales. There’s over a century of rugby history in this 81,605 seater stadium, and no doubt a little more will be added on Saturday 31st of October when the final commences.
The Davids and Goliaths of the 2015 Rugby World Cup
Having won all three of their Autumn Internationals, Wales will likely be entering the World Cup with confidence. Playing two early matches on their home ground will likely ensure that Wales get off to a strong start.
After a disappointing Autumn Internationals season, Stuart Lancaster plans to schedule at least one night match at Twickenham to get the England squad used to playing at night. They open the tournament against Fiji; an opponent they defeated 34-12 when they last met in a World Cup.
After failing to make it out of their group and into the knockout stages for the first time in the last World Cup, Scotland will be eager to produce better results this time around.
Having beaten two of their three Internationals opponents in 2014, and getting their best result against New Zealand for more than three decades, things are looking promising.
With Steve Hansen still in charge, and a record of 38 wins in 42 games, there’s no reason New Zealand will be anything other than confident going into this World Cup. A pedant might suggest they work on their goal kick rate, however, which was the second lowest of the season at 68% for all the World Cup teams.
With a win over Georgia in the Autumn Internationals, Tonga will be happy to be in a group with them for the first stages of the World Cup. What they won’t be so happy with is their match against New Zealand, although is any other team happy to face the All Blacks?
