NEWS: The Welsh Rugby Union has obtained a High Court injunction against an unofficial ticketing operation which was re-selling tickets and operating unofficial hospitality for the 2017 Six Nations matches at Principality Stadium.

Evental Ltd was the subject of a ruling by the High Court of Justice at a hearing in London on March 1.

The ruling prevents Evental Ltd, its director or anyone acting on its instruction from breaching the terms and conditions of sale of WRU tickets by selling them on for profit.

It is against the WRU's ticket terms and conditions to re-sell tickets above face value anywhere other than via its officially licenced secondary market website, which is itself subject to detailed regulation to ensure profits made stay in Welsh Rugby and to protect consumers.

As part of the court proceedings, Evental Ltd was required to reveal both where their tickets had been sourced and to whom they had been sold.

As a result, the WRU is aware of around 200 tickets for the forthcoming Wales v Ireland match in Cardiff which have been sold on to other parties in breach of the ticketing terms and conditions and is taking steps to cancel these tickets.

The Wales v Ireland fixture on Friday 10th March has sold-out.

The WRU was awarded £21,338 by way of costs and damages.
