General sales for the remaining tickets for this fall's Rugby World Cup in Japan started Saturday, with seats at all 48 matches on offer.

The sales for more than 250,000 tickets opened online at 6 p.m. Japan Standard Time and are expected to continue until they sell out completely.

About 1.44 million, or 80 percent, of the 1.8 million available tickets have already been sold. The local organizing committee began shipping tickets destined to international fans last month.

The World Cup will involve 20 teams playing across 12 venues in Japan between Sept. 20 and Nov. 2.
