Teams representing 20 nations will compete in 48 matches across 13 host cities between 9 September and 23 October 2011. MasterCard Worldwide, as a worldwide partner and the official payment system of RWC 2011, has made it twice as likely for its clients to secure tickets to the semi-finals and the final, as they receive double entries into the ballots.
