STH Japan launch Rugby World Cup 2019™ Official Hospitality Packages
Official Hospitality packages for Rugby World Cup 2019 in Japan are now on sale. STH Japan, a joint venture between JTB Corporation and Sports Travel & Hospitality Group, unveiled an innovative range of experiences at their launch event, hosted at the Akasaka Prince Classic House, Tokyo on 1 February 2018.
This is an important landmark in the lead up to the tournament and will see STH Japan, as the sole providers of hospitality at Rugby World Cup 2019, deliver the first ever rugby sports hospitality programme in Asia.
As the first Rugby World Cup in Asia and with corporate hospitality a new, but rapidly growing notion in Japan, the Official Hospitality programme promises fans a once-in-a-lifetime experience.
Five official hospitality options are available for fans; Webb Ellis Suite; Webb Ellis Pavilion; Diamond; Platinum and Gold Packages, with prices starting from ¥75,000 per person for full hospitality in a regional stadium to ¥285,000 per person for the final in a bespoke private suite, when purchased as part of a series.
Each package includes the best-available match ticket and a unique hospitality experience which promises a fusion of more traditional western influences and Japanese ‘omotenashi’ (welcome).
World Rugby Chairman Bill Beaumont said: “The launch of the official hospitality programme for Rugby World Cup 2019 is a significant milestone on the road to hosting Asia’s first Rugby World Cup and we are anticipating high demand.
“The commercial ticketing programme has been one of the major success stories for Rugby World Cup, enhancing the tournament experience for hundreds of thousands of Rugby fans from all around the world and financially contributing to the continued global development of rugby through World Rugby’s investment programme.”
Simon Jefford, STH Japan CEO said: “We are very proud of having the opportunity to introduce the concept of sports hospitality to Japan and of course provide a unique Rugby World Cup hospitality experience in Asia for visiting international guests.”
STH Japan’s partnering bodies; JTB and STH Live will also contribute to the development of rugby in Japan and the world, through their involvement as official sales agents for the Rugby World Cup 2019™ Official Hospitality programme.
