Dear Richmond Member
Please note, in order to enter the ticket draw for any matches you must be a fully paid up single adult/head of family member of the Club for 2016/17 (i.e 1 application only per family), which means that individual Mini and Junior playing members are unable to apply for Twickenham tickets. If your subs are outstanding, regrettably your applications will be returned.
During the Autumn, 6 Nations games will become available and you can download the forms from this webpage, for which you need Adobe Acrobat Reader. Download this by clicking the logo below:
The RFU have changed the ticket allocation policy from this season. The club receives a finite initial number of tickets for higher category matches at a lower ‘entitlement price’ but has the opportunity to buy at a higher ‘standard price’ through a newly established ticket exchange. The exchange has been set up to allow clubs to raise funds by selling tickets which they have previously sold at a premium to Licensed Hospitality companies as the latter will now receive tickets directly from the RFU only. Richmond has never sold to Licensed Hospitality companies as we are seldom able to satisfy the demand of members and sponsors. The prices on the forms are based on the ‘standard price’ and those allocated tickets at the lower price will receive a refund – £21 for Cat 1, £19 for Cat 2, £16 for Cat 3, £14 for Cat 4 and £11 for Cat 5 per ticket.
Each match has a deadline for the applications to reach me which is printed on each form. A ticket draw then takes place about 3-4 weeks before each match. Refunds are issued to unlucky applicants and those issued lower category tickets than for which they applied. The refunds are paid by BACS after the end of the relevant series in case we are able to make late purchases through the ticket exchange. If you no longer wish to be considered for late allocations, it is important to know, as I will buy as many tickets as possible from the ticket exchange to satisfy demand as additional tickets become available by and by. This avoids the Club being left with tickets for which there are no buyers and you will be expected to honour your application should you not inform me.
Please note that you do not need to send SAE’s anymore with your applications.
To assist in keeping the admin time down, please remember that one cheque should be sent to cover multiple applications. Please don’t send a separate cheque per form. This will also save you and the Club bank charges.
The deadline for the following ticket draw application forms was Friday 18th November 2016.
MATCH 5 – Sat 4th February 2017 - England v France – KO @ 16:50: Application closed
MATCH 7 – Sat 11th March 2017 - England v Scotland – KO @ 16:00: Application closed

If you have any queries, please use the e-mail link below, or click this link to the FAQ's PDF page. Finally it has to be said that the RFU ticket allocation to the Club is relatively small and hence we always receive more applications than tickets, so it really is the ‘luck of the draw'. This is particularly true for 6 Nations matches, for which you are restricted to applying for a pair of tickets only, other than for Italy. In recent years we have been successful in obtaining additional allocations for the Autumn series and hence you may apply for as many tickets as you would like but you should be aware that, in the event of over-subscription a ballot for a pair of tickets only will be held. That said, we will have to see how the new ticket exchange works.
