Announcing the sale Fiona Coghlan, Women's Rugby World Cup 2017 Ambassador, said,
"With just eight months to go until the first games in UCD, Women's Rugby World Cup 2017 takes another important step forward with the pool schedules confirmed and all tickets on sale.
Having played in and experienced the Women's Rugby World Cup, I know that these are great sporting events and have no doubt that the 2017 tournament in Ireland will be the best ever. With ticket prices from just €5 everyone will have the opportunity to experience a major international sporting event on home soil, as some of the best athletes in the world battle it out for the Women's Rugby World Cup.”
World Rugby Chairman Bill Beaumont said
"The pool stage fixture announcement and tickets going on sale is always an exciting time for teams and fans as they can really now plan in detail for August. The schedule has thrown up some fascinating matches, not least home favourites Ireland playing Australia on the opening day in Dublin. That promises to be a great battle and is sure to attract a big crowd to UCD.
The Women's Rugby World Cup is going from strength to strength. The 2014 tournament in France was a huge success as was the 2010 version in England. As women's rugby is currently one of the world's fastest growing team sports, we have no doubt that the 2017 event in Ireland will continue that upward trend and inspire the next generation of future stars.”

Ranking play-off games will take place in Queens University over the same dates.
Ireland's knock-out matches will take place in Kingspan Stadium regardless of their ranking position.
