The Irish Rugby Football Union have announced that ticket prices have been reduced for the RBS 6 Nations for 2011 and for the first time family packages have been introduced.

Family tickets start at just €45 while individual stand tickets start at €30.

Tickets for the designated schoolboy/schoolgirl section start at €15.

The category 1 adult tickets will cost €75 against Wales, €65 for Scotland and €55 for the game with Italy.

Full details of the ticket prices is available here.

IRFU Commercial and Marketing Committee chairman Pat Fitzgerald said: “We are pleased to be able to offer great value tickets for the RBS Six Nations in 2012.”

“We have tickets available at different category levels that give all our supporters an opportunity to come to the Aviva Stadium and see Ireland play.

“Our ticketing strategy in August saw huge crowds coming to the Aviva Stadium and we feel that with the value on offer, there will be three full houses for the games against Wales, Scotland and Italy next year.”

The IRFU have also revealed that Branch ticket allocations have not changed for the upcoming matches against Wales, Italy and Scotland in Aviva Stadium next year.

However the lowest take up of a ticket allocation by any Branch for Wales, Italy or Scotland in 2012, will become the respective allocation for both England and France in 2013.

All Branch allocations will be reviewed following the conclusion of the 2013 Six Nations.
