It’s about this time of year that lots of people start getting excited about the RBS Six Nations, and think, ‘I wouldn’t mind going to a game. How do we get tickets?’
Generally, Six Nations tickets to Twickenham are extraordinarily hard to come by, particularly when there are only two home games for England. However, here is our guide to getting hold of some.
This is the first place to check to see whether tickets are still available. For England games, it’s highly unlikely, but some of the other nations’ governing bodies are still selling tickets.
Each RFU-registered rugby club is given an allocation of Six Nations tickets to offer to their members. It’s probably a bit too late for this option, but if you are a member of a club, it might just be worth asking. If you aren’t, your odds are even longer, but try asking someone who is!
This isn’t really recommended, but if you’ve got lots of cash and aren’t too risk-averse, then this is an option. I had a quick look the other day and there was a pair of tickets for England v Wales going at £280 – they were quite good seats, but with a day or so to go in the auction, the final price will probably be a lot higher.
The tickets might not even turn up and there’s no money-back guarantee – you can give bad feedback to the seller as much as you like, but you’ll be watching the game from your sofa.
