There's just under 50 days to go before the Heineken Cup quarter-finals when Cardiff Blues play defending champions, Leinster Rugby, at the Aviva Stadium on Saturday, 7 April.
It is anticipated that almost 50,000 will pack the Aviva Stadium for the match which not surprisingly, is in stark contrast to the last time the two clubs met in the knock-out stage during the tournament’s inaugural season in 1995/96.
On that occasion at Lansdowne Road, Cardiff defeated Leinster 23-15 in front of a crowd of just over 7,000.
Cardiff Blues have now received their ticket allocation for the match which goes on sale today at 4pm.
Adult: £27 and £45
£1 booking fee per ticket still applies. Plus if paying by card a 0.50p card transaction fee.
Tickets can be purchased online, over the phone (0845 345 1400) or by visiting the Ticket Office direct.
Supporters ordering over the phone or online will need to opt to either collect their tickets or have them posted:
Collection: There will be no extra fee for requesting tickets to go into collections. Supporters must collect their pre booked tickets before the day of the match from Cardiff City Stadium Ticket Office. Any tickets that have not been collected by the day of the game will not be taken over to Ireland.
Delivery: As we are not printing the tickets ourselves, then we will be unable to reprint any tickets that do not arrive in the post. Therefore, any posted tickets will be sent via special delivery so they can be traced if needed. The cost of this will be an extra £5.26
