Rugby World Cup 2015 - Fuji v Uruguay
I was very lucky to receive two tickets for one of the RWC 2015 games at Stadium in Milton Keynes via the ticketing ballot held last year.
Tickets arrived in due course and blue badge parking was very easy to arrange via the dedicated phone number.
We arrived at the stadium early to park up, grab some food (and a beer!) and take in the atmosphere prior to kick off. Unfortunately the weather was a little on the damp side but with plenty of cover there were no problems keeping dry.
Stadium MK is a superb new stadium with plenty of facilities for both abled and the less abled. Parking is right on site, bars are easily accessible and there are plenty of easily accessible toilets. Staff are always on hand and more than willing to help if required.
The games itself was very good. Two physically strong teams both wanting to win that 3rd place to automatically qualify for the next World Cup in Japan.
Fiji were slightly edging it but there was always the risk Uruguay would come back.
Final score was 47 v 15 with Fiji running in 5 tries in total. Atmosphere was excellent with a record stadium attendance of 30,085.
