Olympic Stadium, London

Capacity: 54,000

The London 2012 Olympic Stadium was built to host major sporting events and there is no doubt that this venue is set to be one of the most impressive stadiums in the 2015 World Cup.

With modern features such as light panels on every seat, ticket holders will be treated to amazing light displays during the match – although hopefully the rugby will provide enough entertainment as New Zealand, South Africa and Ireland take to the pitch.

The site will be a hive of activity come match day with one of London’s biggest shopping centres, Westfield, located right next to the stadium as well as the vast Olympic Village, which is definitely worth taking a stroll around.

Expect it to look pretty special.
