6 Nations Ticket Sell Out On the Cards

24th January 2008

The 'Sold Out' signs have gone up at the WRU for two of Welsh rugby's three Millennium Stadium based 2008 RBS Six Nations matches, against France and Scotland, and ticket bosses say there are only a few hundred places left for remaining game - Italy's visit to Cardiff on Saturday 23 February (Kick-off 1500).

With a month to go before the Azzuri come to town the Welsh Rugby Union expects to complete its hat-trick of sell-outs at the 74,500 capacity ground well in advance of their arrival, as the nation unites behind new coach Warren Gatland's team.

However you can still purchase tickets  

The 'Gatland factor' has spread a new wave of optimism amongst fans and anyone left who has not yet taken up the chance to follow him and captain Ryan Jones on a key leg in their Six Nations journey is encouraged to act now to avoid disappointment.

"To sell-out the France and Scotland games so quickly has been a real boost for us and there's little doubt the Italy game will sell-out too," said Head of compliance Julie Paterson.

"The 'Gatland factor' has certainly inspired fans to rush to the ticket office this season and our advice to anyone who does not want to miss out on the chance to be there in person when we take on the Italians at the Millennium Stadium is- act quickly."

There a still a few hospitality suites available from £199
