Members are invited to apply for tickets for the forthcoming autumn international matches.
Members are requested NOT to apply for tickets in excess of their actual requirements. We receive a very limited number of tickets in our allocation from the RFU and inevitably we are over subscribed necessitating a ballot which leads to disapointment for some Members.
The RFU have revised the pricing structure for seating at Twickenham and the attached plan (click here) illustrates the price for seats for the 2015/2016 season and the the new plan for 2016/2017. Please be aware of the alteration when ordering your tickets.
