Welsh Rugby Union Reduces Ticket Prices For Next Year's Six Nations Tournament
Welsh Rugby Union CEO Roger Lewis said that "he wanted to avoid 'being greedy' when dropping ticket prices" for next year's Six Nations rugby tournament, according to ISPORTCONNECT. The WRU released a statement confirming that "the home games against Italy and Scotland would see a price drop, whilst the game against France would remain at the same price as this year's tournament." Lewis said, "It's a way of making sense for everyone. It's looking after the fans in the tough times and also not being greedy with one's yield, to ensure you get a full house, because everyone wants to play to a full Millennium Stadium." Lewis added: "My strategic imperative for next year is based upon a very tough economic environment in Wales and a desire to ensure that the fans remain engaged with the game at international level" (ISPORTCONNECT, 1/29).
