Marriott Bonvoy is offering tickets to the England v Ireland Six Nations rugby match on 23rd February.
There are two options. The first offers:
You and a guest can attend the at the Six Nations Championship, and watch the England vs Ireland rugby match from a private balcony at Twickenham Stadium. Your match-time beverage package includes beer, wine and soft drinks until one hour after the final whistle. Before the match starts, go to a meet and greet and have a three-course lunch with English rugby legend Chris Robshaw, and take full advantage of your match day accreditations to experience that day’s programs.
There are four packages, each with two tickets. They have seen little interest so far, with pricing running from 50,000 points (starting bid) to 64,500 points. Given that I value a Marriott Bonvoy point at 0.5p, this is excellent value.
You can bid here.
The second package is the same but includes a night AFTER the game in the Twickenham Marriott hotel. There is only bid so far at 75,000 Bonvoy points, which is the minimum bid allowed. You can bid here.
