IHG One Rewards has just dropped some tickets for upcoming EPCR Challenge Cup and Heineken Champions Cup rugby games onto the relaunched IHG Access platform this morning.
All are priced at 20,000 IHG One Rewards points for two tickets.
This is what is available at the time of publication (9.45am):
EPCR Challenge Cup:
- Cardiff Rugby vs. CA Brive at Cardiff Arms Park, Cardiff – Saturday 10th December
- Stade Français Paris vs. Benetton Rugby at Stade Jean Bouin, Paris – Friday 9th December
- Bath Rugby vs. Glasgow Warriors at The Recreation Ground, Bath – Saturday 10th December
Heineken Champions Cup:
- SM Clermont Auvergne vs. DHL Stormers at Stade Marcel-Michelin, Clermont – Saturday 10th December
- London Irish vs. Montpellier Hérault at Gtech Community Stadium, Brentford – Friday 9th December
- Racing 92 vs. Leinster Rugby at Stade Océane, Le Havre – Saturday 10th December
- Munster Rugby vs. Stade Toulousain at Thomond Park, Limerick – Sunday 11th December
Remember that these are not auctions, they are ‘buy it now’ deals. There is no hospitality element – you are simply using 20,000 IHG One Rewards points for two tickets.
I would value 20,000 IHG One Rewards points at £80. Check cash pricing before you redeem – these games are not all sold out. If you are getting the best seats available, however, then you should come out on top versus using cash.
There is one other interesting item, which IS an auction. To quote:
Gain access to the EPCR Season Launch event at the Crowne Plaza Gerrards Cross on Wednesday 30th November and get up close and personal with the players; thanks to our partnership with EPCR. Package applicable for two (2) invitations and includes:
· Attending a panel discussion with 8 players
· A chance to take a picture with the players and the trophy
· Buffet lunch
We wouldn’t normally recommend a day out in Gerrards Cross, but with a minimum bid of just 10,000 IHG One Rewards points – and with no bids so far – this is a good deal for a rugby fan.
Log into the IHG Access reward platform here to redeem for any of these events.
