RBS Six Nations Tickets

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.

Governing bodies

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.

See Wales v Italy at the Millennium Stadium or head to Murrayfield to see Scotland take on France or England from as little as £30.

Rugby Clubs

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.

One thought on “RBS Six Nations Tickets

  1. Twickenham has long since lost its ability to draw a crowd of people that are willing to sing rugby songs and get behind the England team. With almost all of the seats between the 22s going to “Debenture Holders” (19% of Twickenham 6 nations tickets) and the remainder of the tickets in those areas going to business (10%), rfu staff and ex players (3%), the real rugby fans if they are lucky enough to get tickets ahead of the touts are pushed to the ends and corners of the ground. Even then, they are expected to fork out more than a pound a minute for the priviledge of watching the game through a pair of binoculars or on the in-ground big screens. Its all very well saying 68% of tickets go to “real fans” but you honestly get more atmosphere in the local pub watching the game than you do at Twickenham. This is our national team and there should be more done to get affordable tickets in decent positions on sale. A good crowd can boost a team into winning (just look at Scotland’s peformances at Murrayfield) and that in turn draws people to rugby clubs (along with their coffers) much more than the Debeture holders £7000 per decade ever could.
