Existing Season Ticket Holders:

1. How much will it cost to renew my Season Ticket for 2016/17?

Season Ticket prices will remain unchanged for the 2016/17 season. Costs vary depending on the category and time that you purchase. A full list of prices is available from www.leinsterseasontickets.ie and Early Bird pricing is available until Friday, 3rd June. Additionally, current Season Ticket holders who renew by the 21st March will also have their ticket price frozen for the 2017/18 Season should they decide to renew then. This will be applied regardless of payment option selected.

This year we have also introduced an ‘Early Renewal’ option where you can choose to secure your renewal in February without having to worry about payment until 25th March. This option is to give you as much time as possible to arrange your renewal and to facilitate anyone who may be busy/away during the Easter holidays.

Ticketmaster service charges apply to all Season Ticket purchases and vary depending on the category purchased. A full list of service charges is available on www.leinsterseasontickets.ie.

2. If I do not renew by the 21st March am I liable to a ticket price increase next year should I choose to renew again?

Yes – the price freeze will only guarantee your price for the next two seasons (2016/17 and 2017/18) if you purchase during the renewal window. Leinster Rugby reviews pricing structures every season and reserves the right to alter pricing as necessary on a season by season basis.

3. How can I pay for my 2016/17 Season Ticket?

There are four payment options available. There is no additional cost involved in spreading your payments.

  1. You can pay in full on renewal from the 8th February.
  2. You can opt for payment in full but delay the payment until 25th March. Your card details will be taken at checkout but not charged until this date.
  3. You can pay in two instalments of 50%. First payment will be taken on renewal (1st March onwards) and balance will be payable on 24th June. Again, you can opt for this option throughout February but first payment will not be taken until 25th March.
  4. Season Tickets can be paid for in monthly instalments up to December. If you book in February or March you will be charged 10% of the value of the ticket per month until December. If you renew in April you will be charged 20% on renewal and 10% per month thereafter. If you renew in May you will be charged 30% on renewal and 10% per month thereafter etc. If you renew during February your first payment will not be processed until March.

4. I wish to change the location of my Season Ticket for 2016/17, how do I do this?

We are delighted to introduce a ‘risk-free’ option for moving or upgrading your Season Ticket location this year.

If you wish to keep your current Season Ticket but would like to improve the location of it then you should renew it as normal before the 21st March. From the 22nd March you will be able to log in to your account and select from any available seats and either move to seats of equivalent value or upgrade and pay the difference without any risk of losing the seats you currently have. Please be aware that this option will only work if moving to seats of equal or greater value to your current seats.

If you wish to ‘downgrade’ your seating simply do not renew your current seats and you can purchase from all available seating from the 22nd March as normal.

5. I wish to purchase additional Season Tickets for 2016/17, how do I do this?

You can purchase additional Season Tickets from the 22nd March. If you wish to purchase additional seats beside your current seating you will need to contact tickets@leinsterrugby.ie who will be able to confirm availability for you after renewals close.

6. I wish to reduce the quantity of Season Tickets I have for 2016/17, how do I do this?

If you email tickets@leinsterrugby.ie before the 21st March we can cancel any unwanted tickets and amend your renewal invoice.

7. What happens if I do not renew my Season Ticket by Friday, 21st March?

Any Season Tickets that are not renewed by the cut-off date of 21st March will be released for sale to existing Season Ticket holders on the 22nd March. You will also not be eligible for the price freeze if you purchase after the 21st March.

8. Where will I be seated in Aviva Stadium for fixtures played there in 2016/17?

Your seat in Aviva Stadium will be allocated to you based on the price of your Season Ticket and not on the location of your Season Ticket in the RDS. The grid below will give you a rough guide to where you can expect to be allocated seating however you will also be given the opportunity to either move or upgrade these seats depending on your preference and availability.

Please note that your ticket allocation in Aviva Stadium is subject to change year on year even if your Season Ticket location in the RDS does not.

If you have several Season Tickets for one section (eg. South Stand) in your account you will automatically be allocated seating together for all games in Aviva Stadium.

If you wish to sit with a group of Season Ticket holders from the unreserved sections in the RDS we can facilitate this also. Details will be communicated by email prior to the first Aviva game of the season with instructions on how to create your ‘group’.

10. I purchase Season Tickets on behalf of a group, is it possible for all of us to receive email updates from the Ticket Office?

Ticket emails will only be sent to the primary email address on each account so it will be the account holders responsibility to circulate any information contained in these mails. If you wish to create individual accounts for everyone you have purchased tickets for this can be done by written request to tickets@leinsterrugby.ie.

11. What age does a ‘Junior’ and ‘Student’ Season Ticket apply to?

‘Junior’ is classified as any child under 18 years of age. ‘Student’ is classified as any individual in full time education for the Academic year 2016/17. Anyone purchasing a Student Season Ticket will be asked to show their Student ID on collection of their ticket at the beginning of the season.

12. How do I claim my supporters gift?

Your supporters gift will be sent to you by post before the season commences. For convenience you will be given the option to supply a shipping/alternative address for this. As it may not fit in a letter box we recommend you enter a shipping address where someone will be available to accept the package on delivery eg. work address or neighbour etc.

13. If I cannot attend a particular game, what are my options? Can I transfer my Season Ticket?

Season Tickets are fully transferrable and we encourage supporters to pass on their tickets so a friend or relative can enjoy the Leinster Rugby experience. There are several options for utilising your ticket for games you are not attending:

  1. You can lend your Season Ticket card to another supporter.
  2. You can transfer your ticket to another supporter by printing out a paper copy of it via your online account and giving it to them or you can transfer it to them via email attachment. Printing/ emailing your ticket will generate a new barcode which will then void your card for the selected game only. This option allows you to pass on your tickets without having to physically give the person your card.
  3. Give up your seats. If you register an account in the Upgrades section of the Leinster Rugby app you can give up your seats if you are not using them for a game. This allows us to re-use these tickets the day of the game. We’ll give you 50% of the Season Ticket value of your seat back as credit which you can then use via the app to upgrade seats, purchase additional seats, buy Leinster goody bags/ signed programmes or upgrade to the Blue Room* The best part? You get credit whether we use your ticket or not!
  4. Sell your tickets via TicketExchange – you can log into your Season Ticket account and post your tickets for sale to other supporters. If your ticket sells you will be given 70% of the face value of the ticket back as account credit which can be used to either purchase tickets to a future game or you can save it up and put it against the cost of your next Season Ticket. Credit will only be applied if your ticket is sold however you can take it off sale at any time should you decide to use it or give it to another supporter.
