Just checking if anybody has recieved their Scotland v Ireland tickets from the SRFU. Starting to worry a little. Paid for them in December.

Check your confirm but they don't normally post them to addresses outside of the UK, you need to collect from the ticket office at Murrayfield. Am fully expecting to have to do that this year (Like every other year). The SRU don't post any tickets abroad (even ML tickets!)

Not sure if this is the right thread but just got an email offering 6 nations tickets. Check the prices (per ticket) of the Ire v England game

http://www.getmein.com/tickets/six-n...in-176400.html

How is this happening?

Get me in are a subsidiary of Ticketmaster.

clubs (both in England but probably more in Ireland) who are struggling to financially sell some or all of their tickets at higher than face value to raise cash. Getmein apply their margin and that's how you to the prices being asked on the website.

It's well documented and has been happening for years....sad but true.

Because firstly, people are greedy/desperate/opportunistic/scalpers [delete where appropriate] and secondly, it technically is not illegal.

Where possible and if caught tickets such as Irish Rugby Supporters Club allocated, if being hocked above face value will be nullified without rebate and memberships cancelled.

One other thing to remember re.scalpers is that they most likely are not yet in possession of the actual ticket per se but speculate ahead of issue.
If you buy off a scalper then expect to be burned in one or more ways.

Suppose i am just completely shocked at the price per ticket..400+Stg.
Thats 5/600Eu per ticket.

I know it can't be fully stopped but this is a joke by anyones standards especially if they are a subsidiary of ticketmaster which the IRFU use for some games. Surely if thats the case the IRFU can and should have some influence here?

Just saw the email:

Returned Tickets On Sale
For immediate release: Thursday 3rd March 2011
Issued on behalf of The Irish Rugby Football Union

A very limited number of tickets for the RBS 6 Nations clash against England in Aviva Stadium on March 19th have been returned to the Supporters Club.

Tickets will go on sale at 3:15 pm today March 3rd. Please note tickets will sell out fast.

Any member who has already purchased tickets for this year's RBS 6 Nations through the Supporters Club will not be able to purchase further tickets. This is to ensure that those members who missed out in the first sale have another opportunity to purchase.

Looking to buy two tickets for Munster v Leinster at Thomond Park. If anyone could point me in the right direction, I'd be grateful.

What about this guy?

Selling 10yr Ticket and bizarrely hasn't obscured his name in pic of tickets.

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/2-IRELAND-vs-E...#ht_500wt_1021

Also I'd be wary of this seller offering 10 tickets at relatively low prices

Roll up, Roll up, Leinster quarter final tickets available from Leicester returns, from E30 in upper tier on halfway line! (all be it at very back, but still great view).

Leinster season tickets also going on sale.

Check out ticket section on Leinsterrugby.ie

http://www.leinsterrugby.ie/newsroom/7740.php

Season tickets (get in early, sold out last season and are on sale early for next season and will sell out again). Must join the waiting list for tickets if you are not already a season ticket holder - get in early and you'll pick up season tickets from non-renewals

Seems only section 523 of East Upper has any really decent seats left.

Sitting way up the back, much of the spectacle, garryowens etc can be obscured.
