Wales will face World Champions South Africa in the Invesco Perpetual Series clash on 8th November in front of a 74,500 Millennium Stadium sell-out crowd
Warren Gatland's Grand Slam winners are already set to meet New Zealand on 22nd November in front a capacity crowd and with only a few thousand tickets remaining for the campaign climax against Australia on 29th November - and still over a month before the series starts - that game is now the last chance to see a SANZAR team in action
Welsh rugby's stock has never been so high and the fourth game in the Autumn, a Friday night meeting with Canada on 14 November which has been priced to suit a family audience, is also selling well and could soon be the final chance for fans to see Gatland's superstars in the flesh, as the clash against the Wallabies is set to post up the sold-out signs well in advance of the fixture.
"We are the most popular show in town at the moment, everyone wants to see Warren Gatland's Wales in action and not only relive the memories of last season's Grand Slam on home soil, but see our team tested against the finest opposition world rugby has to offer," said WRU Group chief executive Roger Lewis.
"Coupled with a new sophisticated ticketing policy, which has allowed fans access to tickets in a much more efficient way whilst maintaining our constitutional commitment to give first refusal to our member clubs and key stakeholders, our popularity means we have sold out two of our four matches in record time and will not be surprised if both the other games follow suit.
"Fans may be forgiven for thinking that these games are a way off and that they will be able to get hold of tickets nearer the time, but the clear message is that the days of turning up to international rugby matches on the day and hoping for a ticket are numbered.
"Taking the series as a whole we have sold over 250,000 tickets with more than a month to go and, although Canada obviously don't carry the weight of the three SANZAR nations in marketing terms, this fixture is proving to be equally as popular. This is the best game to take your family to see, not least because of the way it has been priced to make sure it is easy on the pocket, with a family of four charged just £50.
"So, fans who want to see Gatland's heroes in action in the this Autumn at the Millennium Stadium should act now to avoid disappointment."
