Fans can already get tickets for both games through WRU member clubs and sales have been strong for the Championship’s opening match against Ireland and the third round clash against England at Principality Stadium.
But official fan club members and bondholders have starting Wednesday 28th. Then, after two days, the city’s hottest tickets will be released direct to the public – if there are any left.
Welsh Rugby Union statutes ensure that member clubs have first access to tickets, meaning all 74,500 seats at Principality Stadium can be sold before they even go on sale to the public.
Becoming an official member here before September 29th will grant you priority access to remaining tickets.
“Demand is as high as ever, with many categories already sold out and tickets going on public sale in limited quantities, if any,” said Rhodri Lewis, WRU Group Commercial and Legal Director.
“Our advice to fans is to always contact your local club first, but there are other things you can do to increase your chances of clinching a ticket to represent Wales in this year’s Guinness Six Nations see.
“Bondholders are of course guaranteed access to all home games, but once they and the clubs have been given first refusal, members of the Official Fan Club have access to purchase up to two tickets for England or up to four tickets for the Ireland game.
“Backers are encouraged to act as soon as possible to avoid disappointment.”
The schedule for Guinness Six ticket sales to the public coincides with the sale of Autumn Nations Series (ANS) tickets, which go on sale for the first time in recent history, meaning that the Welsh Rugby Union is almost a half a million tickets to see Wales in Cardiff in the 2022/23 season immediately.
Wales meet New Zealand, Georgia, Argentina and Australia in Cardiff in the autumn after a record year for the ANS in 2022, when the highest attendances since 2008 were recorded.
A wide range of ticket prices are available throughout the season to suit all fans. A family of four, for example, can watch the Wales v Georgia game for just £30 per family this November and the fact that the price is high Tickets for the home games of the Guinness Six Nations Championship were the first to go on sale shows how high demand is to see Wales.
Ticket prices for these Guinness Six Nations 2023 matches at the Principality Stadium have increased in some categories, decreased in the Alcohol Free Zone (AFZ) and tickets remain frozen at £40.
“All Welsh international ticket proceeds go directly back to the game in Wales,” added Lewis.
“While some of our highest demand games have required price increases, we also wanted to offer the widest possible range of ticket prices and customer offers across our entire 2022/23 fixture list.”
