Tourism Northern Ireland welcomes Women’s Rugby World Cup 2017 trophy

Aine Kearney, Tourism NI Director of Business Support and Events, welcomes the Women’s Rugby World Cup trophy to Northern Ireland with WRWC 2017 Ambassadors Lynn Wilson and Jordanne Booth.


Tourism NI has welcomed the Women’s Rugby World Cup 2017 trophy to Northern Ireland.

The coveted silverware is making its way around the island of Ireland, visiting rugby clubs and schools in all 32 counties as excitement builds for the tournament.

It promises to be a highlight of the sporting calendar, with the semi-finals and finals taking place in Belfast’s Kingspan Stadium and Queen’s University Sport from 22nd-26th August.

Tourism NI expects the tournament to attract around 23,000 spectators, of which a significant proportion will be from outside Northern Ireland coming to support the 12 teams from around the world.

There are 21 matches broadcasted across the tournament, ensuring global coverage which will undoubtedly benefit Northern Ireland.

Ireland will play at Kingspan irrespective of placing, so those who want to get behind Ireland should get tickets as soon as possible as they are selling fast.

Finals day will feature three games, including the final, the third or fourth-place play-off and one ranking game, with prices starting from just £10 for children, £15 for adults and £45 for families (two adults and two children).

Semi-finals day will also consist of three games with tickets priced at £7 for children, £12 for adults and £36 for families.

WRWC kicks off at University College Dublin on 9th August.
