How To Buy Six Nations Rugby Tickets

how to buy debentures

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

So, who gets the tickets?

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 Millennium Stadium.

Tickets also end up going to corporate sponsors as the unions undertake their obligations to them.
