The prices are out for the game at Spotland and they are £20 for adults and £10 for students, 16 and under and O.A.P.

Let's hope we can get a good crowd for the match and give the R.F.L. a nudge for future fixtures.

20 quid for a game between two 'nobodies' on a Monday night - ridiculous. Ive just got tickets for the final and the double header semi final at wembley (all weekends) for 25 quid each and you get a free beanie hat with those.

The preliminary games involving the 'nobodies' should have been a tenner each and a quid for concessions. Once again well done RFL.

Just sorted mine through the RLWC website, looking forward to it... Managed to order sat in my usual block as well.
If your after a deal, you can get seats at this coming Autumn International Final at Salford City Stadium for £12 if you order now, given that watching Hornets is £12 i think this is a great offer to see international RL in the flesh

Many apologies folks!

I was comletely wrong about the prices, those I quoted were only for the main stand. Pearl St tickets are £15 and £7.50 and Sandy Lane terraced tickets are £10 and £5.00. The Willbuts St stand is not quoted as yet and will probably be used only if the other tickets sales are suggesting it's necassary.

Is there any financial gain to our club if we buy world cup tickets from Hornets or not?

I'm not sure O4E, I doubt it will be financial but if we get a good crowd it will stand us in good stead for getting other games like that in the future. I'm sure the RFL will be assessing how the games are conducted in all ways for future reference. I would imagine the stadium company may be paid for the use of the ground but don't know for sure, I will try to find out though.

It would be fantastic to sell 5,000+ tickets for a Monday night game between two unfancied sides and hope that the fans from Swinton, Oldham, Salford etc will consider coming to see a live game. I'm sure the Rochdale Fijians will be making great efforts to sell to their compatriots and we should look at getting into local Irish clubs as well to get some rivalry going on.

Sorry to be cynical but the futre reference is likely to be confined to future Fiji v Ireland games (and equivalent).

It would be nice to know the secret financial details of the arrangments. Since bidding is now over and games allocated I see no reason for the lack of transparency. Its certainly not in the public interest.

My guess (and I hope I am completely wrong - I often am) is that the bidders had to provide a financial guarantee to the RFL/RLWC for the game (ie fixed pot of money to hand over to RFL) for hosting the game. The bidders then retain any surplus (or incur any losses). Since the Club isnt the bidder is it (??) but the Council or some group involving the council (maybe including the club), then it appears the taxpayer maybe the one at risk. Also given the council (and RFL's) stake in the stadium company it wouldn't surprise me if this was being provided gratis (though Dale might not be too happy about that).

So that is my guess (pure speculation) - I hope someone can come on here and provide the facts.

If anyone wants tickets for the main stand I suggest you get them booked NOW, to get two tickets together I had to get block F! The only downside is that however you get the tickets you have to pay the administration fee, £2.50 for internet and in person and £3.00 by telephone.

I doubt it Riggy, I was told they were selling well by someone who had bought some so I got straight on to the RFL and when I asked for two together Block F was the best I could get. To be honest I thought I'd wait until next year to buy mine but I'm really glad I got the heads up about the sales going well and secured mine early.

Don't wait, buy them now and be sure you get yours.

Fiji got to the semi final of the World Cup in 2008 so I guess they are the 4th best team in the competiton, hardly nobodies. They are also known for playing expansive, attractive rugby, plus I believe they do a haka. Keighley managed to get over 5,000 in for a world cup game between the Fijians and South Africa so I would think the good folk of Rochdale and the rest of the RL world can top that.

Yes Fiji made it to the semi finals having played France, Ireland and scotland (who they lost to). And the score in that semi final was 52-0. I was there and it was a waste of money and two hours of my life.

Being fouth in the world in Rugby league is hardly an achievement - they have to have four semifinalists so they had a 'second-level' competiton to generate a lamb for the slaughter (at the expense of giving PNG a fair chance to reach the semis).

To be fair, the price of tickets originally posted on this thread was inaccurate and has since been corrected.

I hope they do fill the stadium, with everyone paying. It would probably get the local taxpayers off the hook. Though I suspect Puggy's inability to get two tickets in the middle stand sections might have something to do with tickets held back for the non-paying dignatories shall we say (The equivalent of FIFAs football family) with local councillors possibly being among them. Seems odd to me that season ticket holders/members were not given some sort of priority for applying for tickets to these group games.

Now remind me, the Fiji v South Africa game - was it on a Monday night in late October during school time? No. And what was the average attendence for Keighly Cougars games at that time - wasn't that at the height of Cougar mania with attendence in the thousands, not the hundreds?

we have got three tickets in block E although some seats will be for officials the rest have been sold and with just under 12 months to go .it looks like its going to be a success and a lot of people have worked hard to get us to this point. I for one am totally behind this match and the world cup
Success does not consists in never making blunders,but in never making the same one the second time.

I would think that the two director's boxes would be used for the dignitaries and RFL officials and they are a decent size at Spotland. Whatever, the tickets are still selling FAST.

I think it's important that we look at the positives and say it's still not 2013 and tickets are selling well so if that pans out across next season we should have a pretty good crowd at Spotland for what could be a decent game of International rugby league.
