THE Wales v Scotland game has become the first of Wales' three home matches in the 2014 RBS 6 Nations to sell-out.
The defending, double, champions begin their historic attempt to be the first team to win three consecutive tournament titles against Italy at the Millennium Stadium on Saturday, February 1 (kick-off 2.30pm), and there are still a few thousand tickets left on general sale for the championship opener.
After a trip to the Aviva Stadium in Ireland in round two, Wales return to Cardiff to face France on home turf on Friday, February 21 (kick-off 8pm) – and a limited number of single tickets are also available for that game, although it is also at near capacity.
Wales then travel to Twickenham on Sunday, March 9, with the final round visit of the Scots already a 74,500 sell-out - likely due to Welsh potential to be the first side to complete the treble outright in the 100-plus year history of the international competition.
"Ticket sales have been extremely strong for the RBS 6 Nations Championship this year, with Wales' historic assault on the record books obviously at the forefront of fans' minds,” said WRU group head of sales and marketing, Craig Maxwell.
Tickets for the Italy game are available from any one of the WRU's 320 member clubs around Wales, with just a few thousand tickets in the price categories of £55 and £65 still available and single-tickets-only.
