RYANAIR has announced it will begin selling cheap tickets to football and rugby games in Spain and France.
The airline said it will offer tickets for matches in the top leagues after pairing up with sales platform Coras.
Greg O’Gorman, Ryanair’s Director of Ancillary Revenue, said the airline would make the tickets available over the coming weeks, adding: “We’re pleased to partner with Coras to add more events to our Ryanair Tickets service, offering customers the opportunity to purchase tickets to some of the top European sporting events.”
He explained the move could see buyers who use their Ryanair account, “benefit from very competitive prices as an easy add-on.”
Mark McLaughlin, CEO of Coras, said: “Travel plans increasingly start with the purchase of an event ticket, whether it be for a football match or for a favorite music artist. Ryanair Tickets offers customers a more convenient and personalized experience to buy the best event tickets across Europe.”
He added: “Starting with La Liga and Ligue 1 tickets, Ryanair customers can now buy tickets to enjoy games at Europe’s most iconic stadiums, with more teams and sports to be added in 2019.”
