How to Buy Autumn International Rugby Tickets
Tickets for the Autumn International rugby matches are, generally speaking, easier to obtain than tickets to Six Nations rugby matches. Most rugby unions will allocate a large number of seats for sale to the general public, so it is usually possible to purchase tickets without having to be a member of a rugby club or an affiliated organisation.
The only exception to this rule is any rugby match involving New Zealand. Tickets for Autumn International rugby matches that involve New Zealand will, almost always, sell out because everyone wants to see their team take on the mighty All Blacks. Northern hemisphere teams rarely beat the All Blacks, which makes it all the more exciting to see your national team play them. English fans were lucky enough to see their team beat New Zealand in 2012, but it doesn't happen very often!
