Wales v France Game Sells Out

Wales’ final round 2018 NatWest 6 Nations clash with France at Principality Stadium has now sold-out, with 20,000 tickets snapped-up in less than a week of public sale.

Italy’s visit to Cardiff on Sunday 11th March is now the only opportunity – outside of official WRU hospitality, access via rugby club membership or official secondary market purchases – to watch Warren Gatland’s Wales at home in this season’s Championship, after the opener against Scotland also sold-out last week.

The meeting with France falls on the final weekend of the 2018 competition and immediately follows Wales’ home meeting with the Azzurri – meaning both matches are set to be hugely influential in the title run-in.

For Italy’s visit up to 48,000 new junior concessionary tickets were offered for the first time – priced at £20 for U16s – and this category remains available, with supporters also treated to two matches for the price of one as a unique international ‘curtain-raiser’ is debuted by the Welsh Rugby Union.

The double-headed Sunday fixture includes the Wales Women’s Six Nations clash with Italy – making it a must-see occasion for all the family – and a limited number of tickets remain
