Tickets for Ireland v New Zealand are already being touted at extortionate prices

The match has already sold out and tickets weren't made available to buy for the general public.

Tickets for Ireland's upcoming November internationals against Argentina and the USA went on sale on Friday morning, but some fans were left disappointed as tickets for the clash against the All Blacks weren't made available to the general public.

With regards to the process of buying tickets, a ticket to watch the Argentina and USA matches went on sale via the usual outlets. The New Zealand game was unique in that all available tickets were snapped up after being made available to rugby clubs, schools and the Irish Rugby Supporters Club, as was flagged by the IRFU earlier this week.

While all tickets for the clash with the All-Blacks have been snapped up, some are already being touted on websites like Stubhub at incredible prices.

As you can see below, a seat in the Lower East stand will cost you €650.

JOE has contacted the IRFU for comment, but given the incredible demand to see the match against the back-to-back World Champions and despite the IRFU having flagged that no tickets were available to the general public, plenty of people were left disappointed and angry that tickets are already being resold at vastly inflated prices.

The IRFU have released the following statement: "Rugby tickets are made available to our ten year ticket holders, clubs and schools and to our Supporters’ Club members, with the balance , if any, placed on general sale.  Like most major events demand can exceed supply on some games, but tickets remain available to see the Grand Slam champions take on Argentina and the USA this November."
