WALES’ three home 2022 Guinness Six Nations Championship matches go on public sale for the first time tomorrow, Thursday, November 25, online at www.wru.wales/tickets from 10am.

Head coach Wayne Pivac’s side launch their title defence in Ireland, before returning to Principality Stadium in round two to take on Scotland on Saturday, February 12, (2.15pm).

The match against the Scots will be the first Six Nations contest in front of a packed out Principality Stadium crowd since 2020, with Wales lifting the coveted trophy behind closed doors in 2021 due to the pandemic.

Pivac takes his team on the road again in round three to face England, before returning to Cardiff to host France on Friday, March 11, (8pm).

Wales kick-off ‘super-Saturday’ with a final round clash with Italy, also on home turf, on March 19, (2.15pm), on a day when the 2022 Champions must be crowned.

Supporters are advised the best way to get hold of tickets for any Welsh Rugby Union international is through WRU members clubs – where 2022 Guinness Six Nations tickets are available now – but those tickets not taken up by clubs will be released on public sale.

“We expect tickets for all three matches to reach public sale in limited numbers, but we also anticipate demand to watch Wales defend their 2021 Championship title will be extremely high,” said a WRU spokesperson.

“Scotland is always a draw for Welsh fans and, with this fixture kicking-off our home matches in the tournament, it will be the first chance for home fans to see our championship winning squad in Six Nations action after the pandemic kept supporters away in 2021.

“The French game will also attract a huge audience, with Friday night kick-offs in Cardiff an experience to be savoured and this fixture always produces the very best rugby from both sides.

“The Italy game has concessionary tickets available at half-price in all categories for the first time, so we know this final match of the tournament will be popular with family groups and junior clubs throughout Wales, as well as supporters looking to see the Championship through to its climax.”

Tickets will be released in limited numbers and categories to be confirmed, but prices across all categories for Scotland and France are £40, £70, £100, £105 and £115 and, for Italy, they are £30 (£15 U17), £55 (£27.50 U17), £65 (£32.50 U17), £70 (£35 U17), £80 (£40 U17).

Public sale will open from 10am on Thursday 25th November at www.wru.wales/tickets.

A full refund policy is in place so fans can be reassured that their money is safe if personal or national circumstances change due to the Covid-19 Pandemic, more info here: https://wru.wales/six-nations-2022/

“We are proud to have kept our promise to clubs and supporters that our lowest category tickets will not rise above £40 (Italy starts at £30) and we have also moved to ensure that concessionary tickets are available across all categories for the Italy game,” added the spokesperson.

“International rugby is a key financial driver of the game across Wales from grassroots to our professional clubs and senior sides and all proceeds are fed back into the game at all levels.”
