IRFU announce reduced prices

The Irish Rugby Football Union have announced that ticket prices have been reduced for the RBS 6 Nations for 2011 and for the first time family packages have been introduced. The prices have been set following a comprehensive review of IRFU ticket prices and ticket distribution systems undertaken by leading sports consultants, Deloitte Sport UK.

The good news for Irish rugby supporters is that ticket prices have been reduced from 2011 and for the first time family packages have been introduced for the tournament. Family tickets start at just €45 while individual stand tickets start at €30 and tickets for the designated schoolboy/schoolgirl section start at €15. The category 1 adult tickets will cost €75 against Wales, €65 for Scotland and €55 for the game with Italy.

IRFU Commercial and Marketing Committee chairman Pat Fitzgerald said:

“We are pleased to be able to offer great value tickets for the RBS Six Nations in 2012. We have tickets available at different category levels that give all our supporters an opportunity to come to the Aviva Stadium and see Ireland play. Our ticketing strategy in August saw huge crowds coming to the Aviva Stadium and we feel that with the value on offer, there will be three full houses for the games against Wales, Scotland and Italy next year.”

The Six Nations games in 2012 and 2013 will be deemed to be one Six Nations ‘cycle’. There will be no linkage requiring branches to purchase tickets for the autumn International matches in November 2012 in order for branches to retain their Six Nations ticket allocations. However the lowest take up of a ticket allocation by any Branch for Wales, Italy or Scotland in 2012, will become the respective allocation for both England and France in 2013. All Branch allocations will be reviewed following the conclusion of the 2013 Six Nations.

Any tickets not sold through the clubs will be made available online through the Irish Rugby Supporters Club.
