Complete Guide to the Autumn Internationals

Interested in experiencing the enthralling sight of the four home union teams battle it out against leading rivals from the Southern Hemisphere? 

We at Hospitality Finder have put together a complete guide to the Autumn Rugby Internationals 2020 to help you discover more about the event and which fixtures to look out for. 


What are the Autumn Internationals? 

The Autumn Rugby Union Internationals are a month-long series of Test matches which take place towards the end of the year in November. Rugby fans can watch the excitement unfold at a number of iconic pitches, including Twickenham, Principality, Aviva and Stade de France as European home teams take on visitor teams from the Southern Hemisphere. 

Each rugby team most commonly plays three to four Test matches, with visiting teams also playing against non-national teams as a part of their tour. Second tier-national teams also play some games. 


How to purchase tickets for the Autumn Internationals? 

There are multiple ways in which you can purchase your own tickets to the Autumn Internationals. Depending on which of the four teams you would like to play, you can purchase tickets from each team’s respective Rugby Union site. 

While finding tickets to other popular rugby tournaments such as the legendary Six Nations matches can be somewhat difficult due to the high demand worldwide. The Autumn Internationals, however, are generally easier to obtain tickets for, with most of the Rugby Unions allocating much of their tickets for the general public. Therefore, you can purchase tickets without being a part of a rugby club or any related official organisation.

You can also purchase tickets to the Autumn International via alternative suppliers such as Viagogo and Stubhub. When purchasing tickets from other, non-official rugby ticket providers, please make sure that the website is verified to prevent any loss of money and disappointment.

Autumn Internationals Dress Code 

Knowing what to wear to a hospitality event can be tricky, especially if it is your first time attending one of our events. 

When considering what to wear, it is generally recommended that you go for a smart/casual look. 

For men, a smart casual dress code doesn’t have to mean that you must turn up in a full suit. However, if you wish you can choose to wear items such as dark jeans with a blazer and shirt or t-shirt. 

Women’s smart casual clothing options can include smart jeans, a skirt or classic dresses. . 

Please note that if you are attending a more formal corporate hospitality rugby event, you may want to consider not wearing ripped jeans or trainers depending on whether you are entertaining clients. 

Of course, at any Autumn International rugby match rugby shirts are most welcome, so feel free to wear your favourite tee or bring along your best clothing items!

As the Autumn Internationals are held in November, the weather will most certainly be chilly at most of our stadium locations, so be sure to bring along coats, hats and scarves to ensure that you remain warm when you are out and about. The hospitality suites and lounges, however, will be kept nice and toasty all day long for you to warm up at your leisure.
