Those caught selling such tickets also face a ban on future purchases.
“The England v Ireland match at Twickenham is sold out, and has been for a long time. There is huge interest in the match.” A RFU spokesperson told The Telegraph
“Our stance on the secondary market is very clear – Twickenham tickets cannot be sold on secondary websites. It is a clear breach of our ticketing terms and conditions, and we are constantly monitoring the marketplace. Our message to rugby fans is clear – don’t risk your money by purchasing tickets from a secondary site because if you do, there is a good chance you won’t be able to get in. As ever, we want tickets to go to rugby fans who want to come to the match – and not to people who want to trade them as a commodity.”
