2015 Rugby World Cup Tickets: Good News and Bad News

Looking forward to meeting up with other Scotland fans in Newcastle.
It is 3:40 AM in Los Angeles. I woke up at 1:50 AM, along with my travel partner to Rugby World Cups-my wife (AKA "Da Redhead") as we sat on idle for over an hour to access the Rugby World Cup site to try get any type of tickets for a match or matches for next year's Rugby World Cup in England, as we got shut out a few weeks back in our bidding process to get match tickets. Remaining tickets for matches were put on sail at 10 AM GMT, or 2 AM my time.

After being on hold for the web site, because of the volume of other fans of the oval ball trying to buy tickets, I first tried to get any tickets for USA matches. I got shut out, there were no more tickets to be had for any USA Eagle matches. I looked up Scotland as a second choice, and found there were some tickets left for the October 10th match at St. James' Park in Newcastle for Scotland and Samoa. After keying in my information, and 169 Pounds Sterling(265 American Dollars) later, I got my confirmation that I got my tickets for my wife and I to see Vern Cotter's re-vamped Scottish side to take on crowd favorites Samoa.

I am bit disappointed that I got shut out trying to see the USA Eagles play, but I am thankful to at least see ANY match at the Rugby World Cup.

The good news is that now I can start planning our trip to the UK next fall in earnest.

I am a little irritated with this entire process, and why couldn't the ticket buying process for this Rugby World Cup be as straight forward as in 2007 and 2011?

At this point, I have more pressing going back to bed to get some sleep as I have to be up at 6:45 AM so that I can get ready for work.
