STH Japan launch Priority Access Pass for Rugby World Cup 2023
STH Japan will provide Japanese rugby fans with another experience of a lifetime, through their appointment as an official travel provider for Rugby World Cup 2023, France in the Japan region. Following the success of operating the official hospitality programme at Rugby World Cup 2019, STH Japan are delighted to continue their partnership with the tournament.
On Monday, 8 February, STH Japan’s Priority Access Pass was launched, offering Japanese rugby fans to get ahead of the game. For ¥25,000, the Priority Access Pass will secure the right to purchase a Rugby World Cup 2023 ticket inclusive travel package once sales commence.
STH Japan will be designing an innovative range of travel package options and price points. All packages will include an element of travel and/or accommodation, and tickets to the biggest matches. Following the popularity of Rugby World Cup 2019 and a 99% ticket sell-out rate*, the highest ticket sell-out rate in the history of the tournament, it is advised that customers purchase a Priority Access Pass as early as possible to avoid disappointment.
2023 will be a historic year, marking the 10th time the Rugby World Cup has taken place and honouring 200 years since the invention of the game in 1823. The celebration will last for 45 days, kicking off from 8 September through to 21 October, 2023. Rugby World Cup 2023 will take place in 10 host cities, creating a festive atmosphere across the country. Currently there are 12 teams confirmed to play, with Japan already qualifying, leaving teams including USA, Samoa and Tonga fighting for the final eight spots.
The previous Rugby World Cup will be one to remember after the Japanese Brave Blossoms delivered a record-breaking tournament. Not only did they finish top of their group after historic victories over Ireland and Scotland, but they also played in their first ever quarter-final at a Rugby World Cup. Following their performance in front of home fans, the pressure will certainly be on as the Japanese national team prepare for France 2023.
STH Japan President and Representative Director Brendan Delahunty said, “We are thrilled with the appointment as an Official Travel Agent for Rugby World Cup France 2023. This reflects STH Japan’s dedication to providing experiences that make the memorable unforgettable to our valued customers. Rugby World Cup 2023, France will be an incredible tournament that will provide Japanese rugby fans a unique experience that will enhance the tournament.”
