The All Blacks are currently the most exciting rugby team in the world and Irish supporters will be forced to pay a premium if they want to see the world champions in action at the Aviva Stadium this November.

Joe Schmidt's men will host New Zealand in Dublin on November 19th as part of the Guinness Autumn Series, with games against Canada and Australia also scheduled.

Ireland came agonisingly close to beating the All Blacks for the first time in 2013 before Ryan Crotty's injury time try denied the home supporters a famous win.

Hopes are high that this autumn might see Ireland finally end that particular drought but fans will have to fork out more money than in 2013 if they want to attend the marquee clash.

Tickets for the game three years ago ranged between €40 (category four) and €95 (premium level) while this year's are priced between €50 and €120.

Furthermore, there has been a €20 increase to category one, two and three tickets from their 2013 prices.

There were also increases to the ticket prices for the Australia game, with category one, two and three tickets rising by €15 each.

However, there are savings to be made if fans purchase a package for all three games.

Independent.ie have contacted the IRFU with regards to the price increases.

Here is the full list of prices for the November internationals:
