PrimeSport converts 2018 RWC Sevens partnership

Sports travel and event management company PrimeSport has been appointed as the official ticket exchange and experience partner for the 2018 Rugby World Cup (RWC) Sevens tournament in San Francisco.

PrimeSport will host and manage the official resale marketplace where rugby fans can buy and sell tickets to the tournament, which will take place from July 20-22 at AT&T Park (pictured), home of the San Francisco Giants Major League Baseball team.

PrimeSport offers a secure, approved resale marketplace for fans to buy and sell tickets. Ticket holders unable to attend the event can post their tickets for sale on PrimeSport’s official exchange site.

USA Rugby chief executive Dan Payne said: “PrimeSport sets the standard as a dependable, secure service in the ticket resale marketplace, and the official RWC Sevens 2018 ticket exchange will provide another fully authorised option for fans seeking official tickets.”

The event, which is held every four years, brings together the world’s top 24 men’s and 16 women’s teams for three days of matches. The 2018 tournament marks the first time it will be held in North America.

In addition, PrimeSport is the official experience provider for RWC Sevens 2018 and offers access to the ‘PrimeSport Rugby House’. Open throughout the competition, guests can come by before, after and between matches for an exclusive game-day experience. ‘PrimeSport Rugby House’ will feature food and drink, meet and greets, entertainment, live coverage of the games and more while also hosting an after-party following the tournament final.
