There are various unscrupulous companies in the market that offer unofficial hospitality packages and tickets for matches which are held at the Millennium Stadium. However, what you may not be aware of is that if you buy hospitality and / or tickets from a party who is not an authorised Operator of the WRU, you run the risk of purchasing stolen tickets and handling stolen goods. These tickets are sold at inflated prices and can lead to non admittance to the Stadium in the first place or ejection from the Stadium during the match.
The consequences of buying unofficial products can be embarrassing and disappointing for both corporate customers and private individuals.
The Welsh Rugby union takes the issue of black-market ticketing extremely seriously and is doing everything in its power to stop unofficial sales through unauthorised ticket agents, unlicensed hospitality providers and internet sites such as eBay, Get Me In, Viagogo and Seatwave.
