CONFIRMED: Wales announce their 2018 Autumn Test schedule
WALES WILL face Scotland, Australia, Tonga and South Africa in next autumn’s Under Armour Series at Principality Stadium, it was confirmed today, with tickets available from a club near you now.
Head coach Warren Gatland’s side will begin their final international season leading into the 2019 Rugby World Cup in Japan by hosting Scotland on Saturday 3rd November, with the Wallabies, Tonga and the Springboks set to follow on consecutive Saturdays in the month.
Scotland will be the first tier one northern hemisphere side to visit the Welsh capital for an autumn fixture since the first four-match series was played out in 2001 and the fixture will also contest the ‘Doddie Weir Cup’ – created in honour of, and to raise money for, the charity of the former Scotland and British & Irish Lions lock who is suffering from Motor Neurone Disease.
The opening fixture of the 2018 UA Series will also be notable for two new enhancements to the stadium experience.
Firstly, the trial of a designated seating area in the North Stand where fans will not be able to take alcoholic drinks to their seats and, secondly, a 30% increase in disabled seating which will help make Principality Stadium even more accessible to more people
Tickets for the UA Series are available now from all WRU member clubs priced at £25, £35, £45, £65, £75 and £15 concession (U16s) for the three tier one matches – against Scotland, the Wallabies, on Saturday 10th November and the Series climax against the Springboks on Saturday 24th November.
