Rugby World Cup 2015 organisers announced on Tuesday the dates of the general ticket sales window for every game in next year's showpiece competition in England and Wales.

Organisers England Rugby 2015 announced that tickets for all 48 matches will be on general sale between Sept. 12 and Sept. 29 of this year, per the BBC's Sonja McLaughlan:

From the beginning of the window, any members of the public will be able to apply for tickets to the matches they want to see, with any oversubscribed games being balloted. 

Before the general sale window opens, however, 500,000 tickets will be up for grabs from all clubs and RFU-affiliated organisations across the country as part of the Rugby Community ticket programme.

All eligible organisations can, starting on Tuesday, register their nominated members, who can then purchase tickets from May 16, 2014. 

England Rugby 2015 CEO Debbie Jevans said she was happy that all plans were on track for the event, as reported by ESPN.co.uk:

Our plans are right on track with 500 days to go. We are pleased to announce the dates of the general sale today, allowing fans to save the date and plan.

Everything is in place now for a great tournament as we move into the delivery phase of our major campaigns.

The tournament is scheduled to start with England playing at Twickenham on Sept. 18 next year, a single adult ticket for which will cost between £75 and £315, per England Rugby 2015.

There has been some controversy surrounding the prices, but there is little doubt they will all be snapped up come mid-September.

The final list of teams has yet to be fully confirmed for next year's event, with qualifying still going on, but the likes of England, Australia, South Africa and holders New Zealand will all be involved.

The schedule sees four pools of five teams eventually becoming eight quarter-finalists, with the top two from each pool going through to the knockout rounds.
