Ballot promise means you can return your package if you get a ticket
And England Rugby Travel will offer an impressive ‘Ticket Ballot Promise’ to all fans who buy through England Rugby Travel now but who are then later successful in the ‘Front Row’ public ticket ballot later in the year.
On England pool games and selected knock out matches played at Twickenham, England Rugby Travel will offer a full refund to fans who are successful in September’s ticket ballot and re-allocate their package to any supporters on the England Rugby Travel waiting list.
