Manchester Rugby World Cup 2015 Fanzone Opens in October

The Rugby World Cup 2015 has already begun, but over the 9th-11th October, it will arrive in Manchester City Centre as the city hosts the Rugby World Cup 2015 Fanzone in Albert Square. Over the weekend, join thousands of other fans to watch the action on the big screens and enjoy a wide variety of food and drink from the on-site outlets.

The Fanzone promises to be a day out for the family with plenty of rugby activities in addition to the live games including a kicking simulator, precision pass and speed pass challenges, rugby bungee, bucking ball, activities from Rugby World Cup 2015 worldwide partners and an inflatable rugby pitch all within the Fanzone.

Stephen Brown, Managing Director of England Rugby 2015, said: “The Fanzones were a crucial part of our delivery plan for the Tournament so we’re thrilled that the opening weekend of Rugby World Cup 2015 has seen such a huge number of fans coming along, enjoying the experience and watching some exciting Rugby.

“It’s another Tournament first to have an official Fanzone in every Host City, plus central London and Rugby, and we have worked with all our Host Cities, Local Authorities and the Mayor of London to identify a range of fantastic locations to give fans, residents and visitors a focal point for celebrating the Tournament and the wider game of Rugby.”

Albert Square is located in central Manchester, located next to the city’s main shopping and leisure district and a 20 minute drive from Easirent Car and Van Hire at Manchester Airport.
