MasterCard counts-down 100 days until the start of Rugby World Cup 2015 with Irish rugby legend 

DUBLIN, Ireland – 10 June, 2015; Former Ireland star Keith Wood is the latest rugby icon to be announced as a Rugby World Cup 2015 MasterCard ambassador. To celebrate the partnership, the world record try scorer fine-tuned his line out throw in front of the iconic bell tower at Trinity College, Dublin.

Keith Wood joins MasterCard’s Priceless line-up, which includes Dan Carter, Chris Robshaw, Martin Johnson and Sebastian Chabal, as rugby fans around the globe begin the 100 day countdown until the start of Rugby World Cup 2015.

Keith Wood, MasterCard’s Rugby World Cup 2015 brand ambassador, said: “With only 100 days to go until the start of Rugby World Cup 2015 there’s a real sense of excitement amongst rugby fans. I’m really looking forward to working with MasterCard to personally deliver even more Priceless Surprises to rugby fans as anticipation continues to grow ahead of Rugby World Cup 2015.”

To celebrate the partnership with the world’s largest rugby Tournament, MasterCard will be creating Priceless Surprises for MasterCard cardholders and rugby fans around the world, including the opportunity to present the MasterCard Man of the Match award.

Keith continued; “At this stage with the Tournament so close, as a player you’re just looking to get yourself in the best place you can possibly be and hope that you can clear yourself of injuries. It’s a daunting time, full of fear and anticipation, and you want to make sure you don’t play the Rugby World Cup in your mind before you get to the Tournament because you’ll be burnt out.

“As a supporter, it’s just excitement. All you’re doing is looking forward to the rugby, looking forward to seeing which players shine during the Tournament, the festival atmosphere and the priceless memories that Rugby World Cup 2015 will provide.”

Mark Barnett, President of MasterCard UK & Ireland, said: “With only 100 days to go until the start of Rugby World Cup 2015, we are delighted to announce Keith Wood as our latest MasterCard ambassador.
