Fans have until February 23 to get tickets refund: IRFU

IRELAND rugby fans have until February 23 to claim their money back for tickets to the ill-fated Six Nations match against France, which was postponed last Saturday night.

English referee Dave Pearson was forced to postpone the match minutes before the kick-off because parts of the Stade de France pitch were frozen and posed a danger to players.

Many Irish fans only heard of the postponement via texts from Ireland.

And after the game there were huge delays as fans tried to get back to the centre of Paris.

The Six Nations Council said on Tuesday that the postponement was "very regrettable" as it " left thousands of supporters disappointed and frustrated".

The game will now kick off at 3.00pm on Sunday, 4 March, which has not pleased the IRFU, as Ireland face Scotland six days later.

Fans who bought tickets - and wish to attend the rescheduled match in Paris - can use their original ticket, said the French Rugby Federation.

Details of the refunds can be found on the IRFU website: .
