The USA Eagles qualified for the 2015 Rugby World Cup with their 32-13 win over Uruguay in the second leg of their playoff tie on Saturday.  The focus now turns to England and just like the team this is the time to start preparing if you plan to fly over to support the Eagles.

And the best news for rugby fans is that all things considered a trip to follow the Eagles is not outrageously expensive.

Mike Tolkin’s side qualified as Americas 2.  The Eagles are in Group B and will open the tournament against Samoa at Brighton Community Stadium on Sunday, September 20.  They will then play Scotland at Elland Road on Sunday, September 27, South Africa at Olympic Stadium on Wednesday, October 7, and finish off against the Asia 1 qualifier at Kingsholm Stadium on Sunday, October 11.

The ticket prices are staggered depending on the match-up but fans of the Eagles can pick up group stage tickets at $100-$140 for Category A tickets to $15 for Category D tickets.  Check out more on Rugby World Cup Tickets.

The second match will be a great chance for all fans from North America as Canada plays Italy the day before at Elland Road.
