    I am selling a pair of tickets to each of the semi-final matches and a pair to the final.

    I will sell them in pairs only for either
    an individual game or

    a package of all three games

    All seats are ideally placed to give you the best view of the action. They are located in the lower tier of East Stand, situated between the 22 and half way (see plan attached).

    Genuine reason!!
    That will be due to the fact that there are no northern hemisphere sides left
    Now let's be sensible here
    You can get cat A tickets for semi finals for £210 on secondary ticket sites and for final probably £600 each
    So we will say £2000 for tickets so where do you get £7000 from for a bit of hospitality
    Can I make a suggestion
    You start your price with a 3 or 4 not a 9

    Stinging Wasp, with all due respect, it might be better to stay out of threads that you're not actually interested in. I appreciate how easy it is to be critical from behind a keyboard but you're fundamentally wrong, and downright rude with your implications.
    Specifically, the chap selling these (I'm just helping) is South African and devastated not to be able to use the tickets. There is a genuine reason but you'd need to use your intelligence and compassion to understand that so I shan't embarrass you by spelling it out here. Genuine buyers feel free to ask...
    Secondly, these tickets are available on the official site. Feel free to visit https://hospitality.rugbyworldcup.com/hospitality_packages.aspx, select final and semi final options to see prices are £1,795 +VAT per person for the semi final matches and £2,495 +VAT per person for the final. How's your maths? 1795+1795+1795+1795+2495+2495 = £12,170 + VAT. I appreciate this might be a lot of money for a "bit of hospitality" and "6 of the biggest tickets in world rugby" but please don't think I'm picking numbers out of thin air. At £9k, these are a significant saving.
    Perhaps not the appropriate option for you so yes please, let's be sensible. By that I suggest you jog on and keep your petty, inaccurate and rude thoughts to yourself and leave me to help a mate with a tricky situation.
    Cheers, Phil

    If that's the case then please accept my apology
    The main point I was trying to get across is that due to the lack of NH participation the value of all tickets has dropped considerably
    The original post was only meant as a bit of banter so once again please accept my apologies as no offence was intended
    I will still say that you will be very fortunate to get anything like the price you are asking as the cost price is irrelevant it's what they are worth now and due to no NH trams involved they are worth a lot less now than they were 3 weeks ago
    You could pick up tickets for quarter finals for half face value and come this weekend the same will apply
    Personally I would seriously consider any sensible offer as in 12 days time they will be worthless

    @PhilBishop, rather than buying the three tickets individually, they are available as a package for £5795 + VAT, meaning that the total value is only £11,590 + VAT, not £12,170 as you state.

    The points that Stinging wasp makes are valid. The fact that these tickets didn't sell out a long time ago suggests that someone misread their value and overpriced them. Now that the NH teams are gone, I'd be surprised if you manage to get as large a fraction of their overinflated price as you are looking for.

    Thanks RedruthRFC, I missed that the tickets were available as a package. You're quite right I'm £600 or so out. Never the less, £9k is what I've been asked to ask for and it remains significantly under the cost price. You may well be right about his chances of selling at this or any price and I'll pass on your advice to him. Thanks again.
