Ok, here’s what we in the Washington DC Welsh are doing about tickets!
Presale is actually on now – use the word eventsdc as the code – and it ends when public sales start tomorrow (Tuesday 13 March). So we actually are recommending that if folks want to sit in the same area as us, go get your ticket today, or at least as fast as you can.
We couldn’t get info on how to get a “block,” but we made a decision to start individually buying in specific areas:
- Section 234 ($92.50) – We’ve started off with folks sitting in rows 8 and 9, so you might want to join us there & nearby.
- Section 235 ($92.50) – Thinking this is the fallback for 234.
- Section 450 ($67.50) – We’ve got some folks starting in row 2.
Comment: None of these are the most expensive seats (those are $152!), and the 200s are quite close to a try line. The 450 seats are more central, BUT the danger is that they’re in an upper level, and that could be quite empty, as it apparently is at pro soccer games. The stadium seats 45,000, and we have no clue how many people will actually show up, since rugby isn’t a major sport here. My friend sits often in the 234 section for soccer & says there’s good atmosphere in that section then.
My friend noticed that some more-central sections (e.g., 231-233) don’t seem to be on sale – don’t know if those have already sold or not been put on sale yet.
I bought in Section 234, Row 9, Seat 1 – come join me and the rest of the Washington DC Welsh!
Suggestion for coping with the Ticketmaster website: Use the price sliders to narrow down to the price category you want (see info above) – that will make it easier to get to the section & row.
Oh, and we are also organizing a pre- or post-game meetup for visiting Wales fans at a local bar . . . stay tuned for more info on that!
EDIT to add: I’m surprised at how high the ticket prices are. I hope it doesn’t keep too many people away.
