Ireland will take on Italy at the Olympic Stadium in London as one of four pool games played at the venue during the 2015 World Cup.

The game against the Italians is scheduled for Sunday October 4th, with Ireland’s four games in Pool D all taking place on weekend dates.

Ireland open with a a game against the top qualifier from the Americas section at the Millennium Stadium on Saturday September 19th, with the USA and Canada set to battle it out for top spot in that qualifier.

Wembley will host the meeting between Ireland and the second qualifier from Europe before the game against Italy on October 4th. Georgia and Romania currently top the European qualifying rankings.

Ireland will return to Cardiff for the the big Pool D clash against France at the Millennium Stadium on Sunday October 11th.

Qualification from Pool D as winner or runner-up would see Ireland staying in Cardiff for a quarter-final clash against a side from Group C, which includes defending champions New Zealand and Argentina. Both semi-finals and the final will take place at Twickenham.

Cardiff will have a capacity of just over 74,000 for the tournament, while Wembley will be the biggest of the 13 stadia being used for the tournament, with a 90,000 capacity. The Olympic Stadium will hold 54,000 spectators for the tournament.

England will play three of their pool matches at Twickenham, including the opening game against likely Oceania qualifiers Fiji.

Stuart Lancaster’s men will also take on Wales and Australia at their traditional home before heading north to play the final Pool A qualifier at Manchester City’s Etihad Stadium.

Wales will play their games against the two qualifiers at the Millennium Stadium but their pivotal fixtures against England and Australia will both be at Twickenham.

Scotland open with a midweek game but will be close to home when they take on South Africa and Samoa, with the fixtures scheduled for Newcastle’s St James’ Park.

New Zealand open the defence of their title against Argentina at Wembley.
