The Trophy will be on display at Exeter’s historic Guildhall and at Sandy Park, one of the 13 venues for Rugby World Cup 2015, on Saturday 13 September.
The visit comes as up to one million tickets go on general sale for all 48 matches at Rugby World Cup 2015. This includes tickets for Tonga v Namibia, Namibia v Georgia and Italy v Romania which will both be played at Sandy Park. Ticket prices for these matches start at £7 for children and £15 for adults. People can apply for tickets at www.tickets.rugbyworldcup.com from 12 to 29 September 2014.
People can have their picture taken with the Webb Ellis Cup Trophy at the Guildhall on the High Street from 10.00am until 12noon. The Trophy will then make the short journey across the city to Sandy Park to celebrate the reopening of the stadium after it’s summer re-development. Fans attending the Exeter Chiefs’ first home game of the season against Leicester Tigers will also be able to see the Trophy and have their picture taken with it, between 1pm and 3pm.
Rugby fans are encouraged to upload their photos directly onto Facebook and Twitter including #RWC2015 within their post.
Cllr Rosie Denham Lead Councillor for Economy & Culture, said: “Having the Webb Ellis Cup in Exeter for such an exciting day was a too big to miss. The development work that has taken place at Sandy Park over the summer has been outstanding and Exeter is very proud to have such a forward thinking Rugby club within the city. As we approach one year to go, Sandy Park is ready to host three Rugby World Cup 2015 matches and to provide state of art conference and meetings facilities for local, national and international conference organisers.”
