Ahead of the NatWest 6 Nations, the RFU issued a reminder to fans that using the official England Rugby website to buy tickets is the only way to guarantee access to Twickenham.

The RFU also reminded supporters that any tickets purchased through the RFU for England internationals are not for resale unless in compliance with the Terms and Conditions of sale.

Resale websites such as Viagogo, Stub Hub, Gumtree, ebay, or Live Rugby Tickets have no association or official arrangement with the RFU and often market tickets which do not exist on a speculative basis and sometimes at inflated prices.

The RFU actively monitors unofficial ticketing sites and will cancel any tickets that are sold or transferred via the secondary market without liability.

Instead, the RFU is encouraging fans to offload or recycle any tickets they are not able to use through the Ticket Exchange section of the official England Rugby ticket website. Tickets can then be officially resold to other England Rugby fans and refunds issued to the original purchaser, once resold.

“Watching England play at Twickenham is a special experience and we value all the fans that come to support our teams," said Steve Brown, RFU Chief Executive Officer.

"We are urging fans not to risk their money or risk being refused entry by using either unauthorised re-selling or buying tickets through unofficial means. All money generated by the RFU from ticket sales is invested back into rugby, so we ask fans to only buy official and offload and recycle unwanted tickets through us.”

Access to watch England at Twickenham is in high demand and at the very core of the RFU’s constitution is the commitment to reward those that play, support and volunteer in rugby week in and week out.

At least 50% of the stadium’s 82,000 tickets for every international are sold direct to the clubs, Constituent Bodies, Referee Societies, universities, colleges and schools that in turn grow and develop the game.
