Recent Club News


England International Ticket allocation update
As you will be fully aware currently aware we have no projected Return to Rugby from England Rugby. We have received a letter from Bill Sweeney, CEO England Rugby, outlining recent discussions relating to the availability of International Tickets for member clubs.

The RFU Council have met and reviewed a range of scenarios for 20/21 season. This includes the impact of the Government’s current social distancing guidelines on Twickenham Stadium’s match day operations, what the revised capacity could be and ticket allocations for a reduced capacity stadium. Of particular focus are the Quilter Autumn International Series and, possibly, the Guinness Six Nations for the 20/21 season and the subsequent impact on ticketing rights for these games.

As there is likely to be a dramatic reduction in the number of tickets available for each game, the RFU Council has taken the decision to introduce changes to the International Ticket allocation process for the 2020/21 season. Given the unprecedented situation, the RFU Council has agreed to temporarily suspend the current ticket distribution policy and entitlements and adopt the Income-Focused approach to focus on fulfilling contracted ticket groups, wherever possible, for the 20/21 season only.

Once these groups have been serviced, the remaining ticket stock will be focused on RFU member clubs and the other key rugby stake-holders. It is anticipated that when a capacity of 50,000 is allowed, we will return to a proportionate allocation system.

The RFU expressed its thanks to its member clubs and the Game’s other key stake-holders for their understanding and co-operation on this matter and looks forward to reverting to normal practice and returning to a full Twickenham Stadium as soon as it is safe to do so.

As a club we are aware that the suspension of ticket availability is disappointing, however like all business operations England Rugby is working within the guidelines issued by the Government and will be constantly reviewing the options available to provide all member clubs with the best solutions to ticket availability. Once we hear further details on the availability of tickets for England Home Internationals we will contact you to provide an update.
