If you’re feeling a bit blindsided by the fact it's 2024 already, you’re not the only one. But here we are in the middle of another sporting season; the Premier League in full swing, the Wimbledon ballot has once again closed, and the toughest game of all is only getting tougher.

As of October, the English rugby season restarted with the Gallagher Premiership. 10 teams battling it out across the country in a series of mad 80 minute scraps in which everything is put on the line.

The last few years of this league have been incredible to watch, with shocking injuries, intense physicality and last-minute drop goals all having an impact on the score.

The reigning champions going into this season is Saracens, who cinched their sixth Premiership title over Sale Sharks in June. But can they do it again or will former winners Leicester Tigers or Exeter Chiefs be back to claim the crown?

Plus, on the women’s side we’ve had the return of Allianz Premiership Women’s Rugby, with Gloucester Hartpury looking to keep their victory from last year. But with two new teams in the mix, the competition is heating up (unlike the weather).

What clubs are now in the Gallagher Premiership 2023/4?

As most fans know, the 2022/23 season was a tough one for English rugby, with three historic clubs shutting down due to financial difficulties. What was a 13 team League now sits at just 10 since the closure of Wasps RFC, Worcester Warriors and London Irish, these teams are:

Luckily for you (and our writers) almost all club rugby tickets can be found in the same place. If you’re buying tickets for Saracens, Bath, Gloucester, Harlequins, Sale, Newcastle or Northampton, then you can either go to their respective ticketing sites or, more simply, go to the Gallagher Premiership hub page on Ticketmaster.

If, however, you’re a fan of Chiefs, Tigers or Bears (oh my!), you’ll have to go to their individual ticketing pages.

How to get rugby season tickets

Once again, seven of the 10 clubs have their season tickets on the Gallagher Premiership Ticketmaster page and the rest can be found on their own ticketing sites.

Rugby season tickets guarantee you a number of perks such as special access sales and merchandise, as well as tickets to all home matches across the new season. But remember, this time around you’re paying for only nine matches instead of 12, so have a think about whether the price is actually worth it.

How much do Premiership rugby tickets cost?

It won’t surprise you to learn that ticket prices vary from club to club, and also depend massively on where you sit in the stadium. If, for instance, you’re sitting behind one of the posts, you’re likely to be paying between £10 and £17.

If, however, you want to sit in a main stand and nearer the halfway line, prices range from £70 to £91.

For season tickets it’s very similar. If you want a whole season of sitting at one of end of the pitch, it could cost you somewhere in the region of £115 - £120, but for the best seats in the house, you’re looking at paying upwards of £1,000. But again, remember, the price of a season ticket now includes less matches than before, so pick the price that’s right for you.

What is Allianz Premiership Women’s Rugby?

Allianz Premiership Women’s Rugby (Allianz PWR) is the primary women’s rugby league in England. The league was previously known as the Allianz Premier 15s, but recently underwent a rebranding which saw a whole new structure introduced and two new teams added to the mix.

Now a ten-team competition, the league runs from 18th November 2023 to 1st June 2024 with the following clubs taking part:

The majority of women’s rugby fixtures are also listed on Ticketmaster, although you may have to dig a little bit more to find them. To help out, we’ve linked to each of the club’s ticketing pages above and you’ll find a list of women’s fixtures below.

If you haven’t been to a women’s rugby match yet we would really recommend as, from personal experience, the atmosphere is incredible and all tickets cost just £10 – so you’re getting premium rugby for far less.
