England vs New Zealand ticket prices revealed ahead of first meeting in four years
The much-anticipated New Zealand showdown with Eddie Jones men in November is being billed as the richest one-off Test in history with top-priced England vs All Blacks ticket prices set to cost an incredible £195.
The All Blacks, the world’s number one-ranked side, will face an England side – ranked second – for the first time in four years when they clash on Saturday, December 10, 2018 in London.
A family of four wishing to watch the All Blacks Test in the premium seating area would have to pay “a shade under £800,” a report in the Daily Mail said.
England’s Rugby Football Union (RFU) has defended the England vs All Blacks ticket prices
“We haven’t yet finalised ticket pricing for the 2018/19 season, including the England v New Zealand game, which is our prime fixture next season,” a RFU spokesperson said.
“We always have a range of prices at Twickenham, and the top price is typically paid by no more than 10 percent of the fans.
“At the England v Wales (Six Nations) match on Saturday – where demand massively exceeded supply – our ticket prices started at £41, which is highly competitive.
The Daily Mail noted that Wales charged £100 for top tickets to the All Blacks Test last November and were accused of profiteering.
