How to Buy Six Nations Rugby Tickets

Obtaining tickets to Six Nations rugby matches can be difficult because demand will often outstrip supply. Big matches, such as Wales v England or Ireland v England, will effectively be sold out months in advance, leaving many fans with little chance of securing a ticket.

Each rugby union will distribute a large number of tickets among its members, clubs and affiliated schools. Club rugby supporters, particularly season ticket holders, are then offered the opportunity to buy a ticket to see their national team. Some rugby unions also issue debentures, which enable fans to buy the rights to obtain a ticket in their home stadium. The Welsh Rugby Union, for example, has around 20,000 debenture holders at the Principality Stadium. Tickets also end up going to corporate sponsors as the unions undertake their obligations to them.
