Wallabies fans forced to re-jig plans

More than 100 rugby fans who purchased corporate packages from an unofficial provider for Australia's Tri Nations Test against South Africa in Perth will be forced to seek alternative arrangements following a ruling by the Federal Court.

Corporate Sports Australia Pty Ltd, which intended to bundle tickets into corporate hospitality packages, commenced proceedings against Australian Rugby Union over access to tickets for the July 19 Test at Subiaco Oval.

But the Federal Court rejected all of the orders sought by CSA, preventing the company from offering such packages and leaving 125 fans who had already purchased them in limbo.

In a statement the ARU said: "CSA is not an official hospitality agent of the ARU and acquiring and on selling tickets for corporate hospitality purposes is in breach of the ARU ticket condition.

"ARU is delighted with the finding having defended the action to protect the rights of its official corporate hospitality providers and to enforce the ARU ticket condition."

The Federal Court also ordered CSA to pay ARU's court costs.

ARU head of media and communications Peter Jenkins said fans who had purchased the packages could contact ARU to organise alternate arrangements.
