International Tickets Update (Apr19)

International Tickets

First of all, thanks to everyone who has supported the Club by buying international and Pro14 tickets either directly through the Club or online using the Club URL. This has brought in over £3,500 in commission to the Club this season at no additional cost to yourselves. However, things are changing at Scottish Rugby and we wanted you to know how this might affect both you and your Club.

From Season 2020-21, purchase of season tickets will no longer generate commission for the Club, while purchase of individual tickets will continue to do so in the main. In fact, season tickets in the future will only be available to individuals directly. Obviously, from a Club perspective we would encourage you to purchase individual match tickets rather than season passes, but that’s your call!

Tickets for matches where demand is high, will still go through a Club allocation process – this should include any Autumn Tests and 6 Nations’ matches, as all have been sold out for last two seasons. Lower demand matches, such as Pro14 league games and World Cup warm up tests will be sold only to individuals, however the Club should still benefit if you use the Club URL when purchasing.

Update from Scottish Rugby’s Ticketing Office

Summer Tests 2019

With the Rugby World Cup taking place from September to October, there will be no Autumn Tests in 2019. Instead, Scotland’s final preparation for the tournament in Japan will be home and away fixtures against France and Georgia. The game against France offers a fantastic opportunity to enjoy international rugby in the summer sunshine, while the Georgia game is the first ever Scotland Test to played on a Friday evening.

Having reviewed the process along with the sales from the last two years we held summer tests, we have concluded that the best way for your club members to purchase tickets for these two games is via the online URL.  Many of your members are familiar with this process now, having signed up for a ticketing account during the past season or so. This is a flexible option, allowing club members to buy at their leisure and print at home right up until kick off for each of the games. Club commission will be generated for your club on individual match tickets for the Summer Tests by using the Club URLs.

Summer Tests 2019 – Tickets go on sale: 10am, Wednesday 8 May

Guinness Six Nations 2020

The application process for home Guinness Six Nations games will continue to be the same as it was during season 18/19 and the relevant documents will be available by June. The deadline for home 6 Nations 2020 club ticket applications will be mid-September in order to confirm bookings and process tickets as efficiently as possible. Pricing for the away 6 Nations matches in 2020 is expected mid to late August and applications forms will be circulated as soon as this is known.
