There are plenty of chances to buy Argentina XV Rugby Union tickets, so snap them up from StubHub when they become available.
Background to the Argentina XV
In the past 15 years, Argentina have become well and truly established as one of the leading international rugby nations. Not only have they triumphed in the northern and southern hemispheres, they also now compete in southern hemisphere tournaments, giving sides like Australia and New Zealand a run for their money.
As with most international rugby union sides, Argentina operates a two-tier structure. At the top you'll find the Pumas - Argentina's elite players. Just below that, the Argentina XV draw their talent from players on the fringes of the test side, as well as promising youngsters who are looking to make their mark.
However, the Argentina XV aren't an afterthought. They actually play some very high-level rugby union, competing for their nation at the South American Rugby Championship as well as other tournaments like the Churchill Cup and the Americas Rugby Championship. With so many fixtures around, it's easy to find Argentina XV rugby union tickets for games that matter.
Great matches in Argentina XV rugby union history
Argentina's XV side have a glorious history which almost eclipses the Pumas themselves. For instance, the XV competed in the South America Rugby Championship from 2001 through to 2011 and won every single time. They also won the Nations Cup twice, in 2006 and 2014 and triumphed in the regional UruCup in 2015 as well. Clearly, they aren't content to be in the shadow of the senior side.
The team have been involved in numerous thrillers over the years. In the semi finals of the 2005 Churchill Cup, they faced up to the USA in Edmonton, Canada and won 34-30, before losing in the final to England A. They also defeated Canada A 23-14 to win the 2014 Americas Rugby Championship - a major achievement as the victory was earned on Canadian soil.
