WALES’ 2022 Autumn Nations Series tickets go on public sale for the first time on Friday, June 10, with every seat at Principality Stadium available at half price for under 17s across all four matches.
Wayne Pivac’s senior men’s squad will return from a three-Test summer tour of South Africa to face New Zealand, Argentina, Georgia and then Australia on consecutive Saturdays in November.
And the opportunity to take a top southern hemisphere scalp, or more, whilst also facing two future Rugby World Cup Pool C opponents, in Georgia and Australia, is relished by the head coach.
“We have another big campaign ahead this Autumn Nations Series with four home fixtures following our three-Test Series in South Africa this summer.” said Pivac.
“Having fans back at Principality Stadium has been massive for the squad and we can’t wait for them to get behind us again in force this November.”
The Autumn Nations Series kicks off at 3.15pm on Saturday, November 5, against the All Blacks in the 37th meeting between the two sides.
The Pumas, always a team by which Wales sides measure themselves, are next up the following Saturday at 5.30pm, before World Cup rivals Georgia arrive in Cardiff a week later (1.00pm) and then – on the final weekend in November – the Wallabies help bring the autumn campaign to a climactic close (3.15pm).
“It’s always exciting when New Zealand come to town – they are consistently one of the best teams in the world,” added Pivac.
“We’re looking forward to being able to test ourselves against them with our English-based players available and the opportunity to make our own bit of history
“We are also looking forward to taking on Argentina again in front of a home crowd, although the conditions this time out should be quite different to their visit to Principality Stadium last summer.
“For our final two matches we play Georgia and Australia who are both in our pool for Rugby World Cup 2023. They each present different challenges for us and these games will be really important preparation as the countdown to the tournament in France continues.
Tickets, which go on public sale from Friday, June 10, from 10am, remain frozen in all price categories for the Georgia, Argentina and Australia matches in 2022 with admission prices for these and equivalent Autumn Nations Series matches having not risen since 2018.
This year the All Blacks fixture does carry a price increase of £10 for most tickets but the entry level price for this match is also frozen, at £40, and concessionary tickets for supporters under 17-years-old – which carry a 50% discount – remain available in all price categories for all Autumn Nations Series games.
The discounted prices mean a family of four could attend the Georgia game for £30, the Pumas game for £60, watch the Wallabies for £75 or see the series kick-off against the All Blacks as a family for £120.
The Welsh Rugby Union always recommends the best place to buy international tickets is from your local rugby club, but remaining tickets will be posted on public sale, from www.wales/tickets with all proceeds received fed back into the game in Wales.
