Tickets Details Announced For Ireland's World Cup Warm-Up Fixtures

Should you want to take the final opportunities to see the Irish Rugby team on home-soil before they voyage east for the World Cup this Autumn, then pay attention.

The IRFU have released the ticketing details for the two home games of this year's 'summer series' - Ireland's last warm-up games at the Aviva before jetting off to Japan and Joe Schmidt's final home matches in charge of the World Number 2's.

Our opponents will be familiar ones, in the shape of Italy on August 10th and Wales on September 7th.

The boys will meet Warren Gatland's charges in Cardiff on the final weekend of this year's Guinness Six Nations, having stuttered to a 26-16 victory over the Azzurri at the end of last month.

Tickets for the games will go on general sale next Wednesday, March 13th.

The fixtures will top-and-tail a four fixture series that straddle August and the first week of September. Schmidt will take his side to Twickenham to play England on August 24th before meeting Wales (again!) in Cardiff a week later.

Pffffttt, the two sides will know each other inside out should they meet in Japan!

The visit of Conor O'Shea's side will see patrons able to purchase tickets from €15, whilst €25 is the cheapest you'll pay if you want to go and see the Welsh.
