Wales’ RBS 6 Nations matches in Cardiff are set to sell-out for the third season in a row as tickets to see England and Ireland at Principality Stadium in 2017 are released via rugby clubs around the country from this week.
Clubs and debenture holders have a first right of refusal on access to the 74,500 capacity home of Welsh rugby and will be able to book their places in the stands at Wales’ national ground for the matches in February and March next year.
The best way to get hold of some of the hottest rugby tickets in the world game remains via your local club in Wales, with an official Supporters Club ballot to follow once all club allocations have been taken up, and no tickets expected to be available for release on public sale at this point.
“Demand for Wales’ home 6 Nations matches is always extremely high and we expect a third consecutive sell-out year, which will have a hugely positive effect on our ability to plan for the future,”
Welsh Rugby Union chief executive Martyn Phillips.
“The England game is always as a huge draw for both sets of fans but the Ireland game is also a regular sell-out and on the back of all three home games – Scotland, Italy and France – reaching capacity last year, that’s a huge boost to the game in Wales.
“All profits that the WRU brings in from ticket sales are fed directly back into the game, funding our strategic planning for the future as we seek to ensure more people are playing more rugby more often in Wales.
“We are blessed with some of the greatest supporters in world sport in Welsh rugby and we expect people to be visiting rugby clubs around Wales in their droves over the coming weeks to pick up some of the hottest tickets in town.”
The WRU has guaranteed that its lowest price ticket for a 6 Nations match at Principality Stadium will not rise above £40 for the next three seasons, with entry level tickets frozen at this price or below until 2020.
Tickets to watch Wales face England in the RBS 6 Nations on 11th February are priced at £40, £70, £95 and £100 and are available at a rugby club near you now.
To see Wales take on Ireland on 10th March tickets are priced at £40, £60, £85 and £95 with clubs also recommended as the best port of call to gain face value access to Principality Stadium for this match.
