WHERE CAN FANS AND SUPPORTERS BUY TICKETS OR HOSPITALITY?
Tickets are distributed by the host Union of each match, with a limited number of tickets made available to the visiting Union for their supporters, ie for a Wales v Scotland match, you should contact the Welsh Rugby Union in the first instance, unless you live in Scotland, in which case you could also contact the Scottish Rugby Union.
To ensure that you obtain a genuine ticket, we recommend that you only purchase tickets through an official source. Details of ticket policies and suppliers can be obtained directly from each Union.
WHAT HAPPENED IN THE 2021 GUINNESS SIX NATIONS?
Wales claimed their first Six Nations title of the Wayne Pivac era, with four wins from five helping them finish top of the standings. Victories over Ireland, Scotland, England and Italy put Wales on the cusp of securing their second Grand Slam in three years but a dramatic defeat to France on Super Saturday ended their bid for the clean sweep. That result kept the title race alive for another week after Scotland’s Round 3 clash with France was rearranged for the following Friday. Les Bleus needed a bonus point and a winning margin of 21 points but their title hopes were dashed by Gregor Townsend’s men, who secured their first win in Paris since 1999. Ireland finished third in the table, ahead of Scotland, England and Italy.
