Rugby World Cup semi-final ticket prices crash after home nations defeats
Rugby World Cup ticket prices for the semi-final matches next weekend have been dropping in price since the home nations' defeats
Rugby World Cup semi-final ticket prices have crashed as previously optimistic Irish, Welsh and Scottish fans offload their tickets following the devastating defeat of all of the home nations, data from ticket marketplace Viagogo shows.
Now that Ireland, Wales and Scotland’s hopes of making it to the next stage have been shattered, tickets for next weekend’s games have dropped considerably below face value, as disappointed fans of the home nations now seek to cover their losses
With thousands of category A and B tickets listed for much less than face value, fans of the last four competitors can now sit close to the action for much less than they would have paid at the box office.
Rugby fans can buy or sell tickets for Rugby World Cup 2015 on viagogo.
