The WRU warns of rich pickings for touts for the Wales England rugby clash on March 16th – rugby fans beware!

Earlier this week the WRU warned fans not to get ripped off for the sell-out Match that could well be the decider for the Six Nations Championship. On Saturday night, pairs of tickets with a face value of £75 were reported in The Times to be changing hands for more than 4 times their face value and the WRU reports online bids of over £500.


Research conducted by the WRU has found tickets for sale from various unofficial online outlets at prices which not only match, but in many cases, far exceed those available from official WRU hospitality channels, Viking Hospitality and Events being one of the official offsite -partners. Fans could be duped into purchasing tickets online (which may or may not be authentic), when they could spend the same – or much less – money on official tickets, which include all the added extras of official hospitality. The WRU states that selling Welsh Rugby Union tickets on auction sites is a breach of the terms and conditions of sale which are printed on the back of the ticket – any breach could lead to the cancellation of the ticket and to entry being refused, so the WRU is dedicated to tracking down offenders and stamping out the practice.

Contacting Viking Hospitality and Events, as an official offsite WRU supplier of hospitality with tickets, will ensure that you are guaranteed access to the stadium, as well as having all inclusive food, drink, entertainment and VIP hostess service at one of 5 different venues in central Cardiff for little more, or even less, than the inflated prices that are being charged for the tickets. Our packages start at £299 +VAT.
