WALES' MOST EXPENSIVE TICKETS EVER SELL OUT.
WALES' most expensive Six Nations tickets in history have completely sold out.
Top-priced tickets for Wales' two home games at the Principality Stadium during this year's tournament were priced at PS110.
Wales' first home game of the Six Nations, against England, takes place in the third round of the tournament, after Warren Gatland's side kick off their first game of the Championship away to France on February 1. It's now been confirmed that tickets to both of Wales' home games, against England on February 23 and Ireland on March 16, sold out in early December.
No tickets for either match had reached public sale.
HOW MUCH ARE THE VARIOUS TICKETS THIS SEASON? The tickets for both home games are split into five different pricing categories. They are: | Category A: PS110 | Category B: PS100 | Category C: PS95 | Category D: PS70 | Category E: PS40 The PS110 price tag means Category A tickets for the matches against England and Ireland are the highestpriced tickets in Welsh rugby history. It is a PS10 increase on the most expensive England ticket for the equivalent fixture in 2017, and a PS15 rise on what supporters were charged for the best seats in the house against Ireland the same season.
With England and Ireland such big draws, particularly with all three sides looking pretty evenly matched heading into February, that explains why the Welsh Rugby Union opted to charge PS15 more in each of the top three categories than they did for the Scotland and France Six Nations matches last year.
On the other side of the spectrum, the cheapest available ticket for both matches this year was frozen at PS40 as part of the WRU's pricing strategy that is in place until 2020.
