Avoid The Perils of Unofficial Hospitality!

20130219-105429.jpgThe WRU is warning everyone that if you purchase unofficial hospitality packages from various unscrupulous operators, you run the risk of purchasing stolen tickets and being refused entry to the Millennium Stadium.

Purchasing from Viking Hospitality means you are using an Official Offsite Hospitality Operator to the WRU, means you are guaranteed Official match day tickets and access to the Stadium on match day. Unlike unofficial operators, money from your ticket will be fed back to support development of rugby in Wales.
