Republic of Ireland v Wales officially sold out

Record-breaking year for FAI Season Tickets.
24th Jan 2017

The Football Association of Ireland can confirm that the Republic of Ireland's 2018 FIFA World Cup Qualifier against Wales on Friday, March 24 at Aviva Stadium is officially sold out.

The Group D game will see Martin O'Neill's team take on Chris Coleman's UEFA EURO 2016 semi-finalists, in one of the most anticipated international fixtures of the year.

Ireland currently sit top of the group, following three wins and one draw, as they prepare for home qualifiers against Wales (March 24), Austria (June 11), Serbia (September 5) and Moldova (October 6), as well as trips to Georgia (September 2) and Wales (October 9).

Tickets for the home clash with Wales initially went on sale on November 21, 2016 through the DUO Package, which included the 'Three' International Friendly against Iceland on March 28 at Aviva Stadium, with the remainder of tickets released on pre-sale to Season Ticket holders, Supporters Clubs, Club Ireland members, Jack Charlton Lounge patrons, Football Family and Sponsors.

Due to phenomenal demand - particularly around the Wales game - the DUO Package sold out in record time. This followed on the back of a record-breaking year for the FAI Season Tickets with the 2016/17 campaign reaching almost 14,000.

For the last two campaigns, the cost of the FAI Season Ticket did not change and with prices starting at €130 it proved to be incredible value for supporters who want to secure their seat for every Ireland home game.

The 2017/18 FAI Season Ticket campaign will be launched by May, retaining the same number of exclusive offers that includes access to Women's Senior & Men's Under 21 home internationals, discounts off FAI Shop plus various sponsors, Aviva Stadium tour, and priority for tickets.

Also, to clarify on the ticket allocation to Wales supporters, the Football Association of Wales (FAW) reached an agreement with the FAI last November to provide 3,500 tickets for the game in Aviva Stadium. The same number of tickets would then be allocated to the FAI for Ireland supporters travelling to Cardiff in October.

Tickets for the 'Three' International Friendly between Ireland and Iceland on March 28 will be available from February 1 via Ticketmaster.ie
