There is now just a year to go until the final of Women's Rugby World Cup 2017 takes place in Ireland, and tickets for the semi-finals and finals days have now gone on sale.

Kingspan Stadium in Belfast will be the venue for the final on August 26th and semi-finals day on August 22nd with Ireland guaranteed to play on both days.

Ireland captain Niamh Briggs, fly-half Nora Stapleton, Ulster player Maeve Liston and Women's Rugby World Cup 2017 ambassador Fiona Coghlan launched the finals and semi-finals day tickets which are on sale now.

Finals day will feature three games, including the final, third-place play-off and one ranking game, with 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 from £7 for children, £12 for adults and £36 for families.

Tickets for the pool stage, which will take place in Belfield at UCD, from August 9th, and go on sale next year.

Briggs said: "It is hard to believe that it is just one year to the final of the Women's Rugby World Cup in the magnificent Kingspan Stadium. We have a huge year ahead of us to build our game, starting with the November internationals in UCD and followed by the Six Nations. We will be looking to continue building from there so that we are peaking for the World Cup. I am delighted that we will play in the Kingspan on both the semi-finals and finals day and I'm sure that supporters will have two great days out.”

Coghlan said: "It is fantastic that due to the structure of the tournament Ireland are guaranteed to play in front of home supporters on both the semi-finals and finals day in Kingspan Stadium. With two fantastic days of rugby, fun and celebration guaranteed, I urge all Irish rugby fans to snap up these really well-priced tickets quickly."

In 2014, Ireland reached the semi-finals of the World Cup in France for the first time in their history, before losing to eventual champions England.
