Big crowd heading for Elland Road on Sunday

The last section of Elland Road has been opened for ticket sales for England’s third Test against New Zealand.

26,234 turned up to watch England clinch the series against the Kiwis at Anfield last week and sales for the game at Elland Road have already eclipsed that figure.

“The first two Tests have been a reminder of the value and appeal of international rugby league,” said RFL CEO Ralph Rimmer.

“We’ve had excellent viewing figures on the BBC for the previous two games, meaning millions of people have seen our England team earn two wins against the Kiwis. Now we’re delighted that more people want to see the third Test in the flesh.

“It will be a poignant occasion as we mark Remembrance Sunday before the match, and we’d advise supporters to arrive in plenty of time as Rugby League remembers before the 3.15pm kick-off.”

In response to the surge in ticket sales this week, tickets for the upper tier of the East Stand at Elland Road have now been made available and can be purchased by visiting  http://www.rugby-league.com/tickets/international_series_2018

A full report, photographs and comment on the third Test will feature in Monday’s League Express, available online and at all good newsagents.
