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's usually possible to purchase tickets without having to be a member of a rugby club or an affiliated organisation.
Autumn International 2019 tickets
With the Rugby World Cup taking place in Japan during the autumn of 2019, there won't be a full series of Autumn Internationals in the UK & Ireland.
Instead, the Barbarians will take on Fiji at Twickenham (16th Nov) and Wales at the Principality Stadium (30th Nov) after the World Cup has finished. Tickets for these fixtures are available via the following links:
Autumn International 2020 tickets
The fixtures for next year's Autumn Internationals are currently being scheduled. A variety of sales channels will be employed by the four home unions to sell Autumn International rugby tickets, as explained in the guide below:
Rugby Football Union (RFU): England will play four Autumn Internationals at Twickenham in November 2020. Tickets for the matches (vs New Zealand, Australia, Argentina and a Tier 2 nation) are not currently on general sale.
Priority is usually given to debenture holders, rugby clubs and schools affiliated to the RFU for ticket applications. If any tickets then remain, the RFU has previously indicated that tickets will be offered to members of the England Rugby Club First XV before they are put on general sale via the England Rugby Official Ticketing website.
Irish Rugby Football Union (IRFU): Ireland are expected to play three Autumn Internationals at the Aviva Stadium in November 2020. Ireland's opponents are likely to be Australia, South Africa and Japan, but the fixtures have not yet been confirmed and tickets are not currently on general sale.
When tickets do go on sale, priority is usually given to rugby clubs and schools affiliated to the IRFU for ticket applications. If any tickets then remain, the IRFU has previously indicated that tickets will be offered to members of the Irish Rugby Official Supporters Club before they are sold via the Ticketmaster.ie website.
Scottish Rugby Union (SRU): Scotland will play three Autumn Internationals at BT Murrayfield in November 2020. So far, only one opponent has been confirmed (vs Japan on 14th November) and tickets are not currently on general sale.
When tickets do go on sale, they are likely to be sold via the Scottish Rugby Online Ticket Centre. In previous years, members of the Scotland Supporters Club have been offered an exclusive pre-sale window before tickets go on general sale.
Welsh Rugby Union (WRU): Wales have not yet confirmed their opponents for the Autumn Internationals in November 2020 and tickets are not currently on general sale.
When tickets do go on sale, they are likely to be sold via the WRU's Official Online Ticket Office. In previous years, members of the WRU Supporters Club have been offered an exclusive pre-sale window before tickets go on general sale.
Can Autumn International tickets be purchased anywhere else?
Yes, tickets are likely to be re-sold at online ticket exchanges. Ticket exchanges offer fans the chance to buy and re-sell tickets to International rugby matches (even those that are sold-out) in a safe and secure environment. Following the closure of Seatwave and GetMeIn in late 2018, there are now only two major online ticket exchanges that operate in the UK and they are: StubHub.co.uk and Viagogo.co.uk.
Both of these ticket exchanges guarantee that the tickets will be genuine or you will receive comparable replacements or a refund. To check the price and availability of tickets at each of these online ticket exchanges, please click on the banners below:
Please Note: Ticket exchanges operate in the secondary market, where tickets may be bought and sold for above or below face value. Tickets may also be subject to booking, delivery and other fees. Please ensure that you are aware of the terms and total cost of tickets before you confirm any purchase.
