“This is a great chance for fans to enjoy a feast of top rugby in their own backyard and see the All Blacks of today and tomorrow,” said New Zealand Rugby Chief Executive Steve Tew. 

“Not only can fans see the great young players of world Rugby in action, they can also secure their tickets now to what will be a really exciting Steinlager Series as the All Blacks take on England, hosts of Rugby World Cup 2015.”

JWC 2014 kicks off on Monday 2 June while the All Blacks open the series against England at Eden Park on Saturday 7 June. Three weeks later #JWC2014 climaxes with the final at Eden Park on Friday 20 June, while the Steinlager Series wraps up with a potential series decider in Hamilton on Saturday, 21 June.

IRB Tournament Director Philippe Bourdarias said: "The IRB is really excited about bringing a major Rugby tournament back to New Zealand this year. Rugby World Cup 2011 showed how the people of Auckland and New Zealand embraced a major event and we have no doubt they'll be excited about watching the future stars of world Rugby in June."
