Been impressed so far with the launch. Both coaches on BBC breakfast & Radio 5 Live as well as bbcsportsday giving it a good go. There's also a good piece on the bbc website about Sir Kev and now the live streaming.

Just got to keep the momentum building and get bums on seats

The problem I have is nobody else wants to confirm for the matches this far out, so I'm just going to have to buy singles

Two tickets for the final and semi finals and three for the match at Spotland will see about more when funds allow

Noticed that Marketing agency McCanns Manchester were appointed partner this week with the main objective of helping to sell the 500k tickets target for the tournament.

All good stuff, it would appear at this stage that it won't be marketing that holds this tournament back.

All good stuff so far, which bodes well for the tournament as long as we build momentum. That being said there wasn't a dickie bird in the London papers today about tomorrow's game or todays media launch. Its going to be a very long hard slog to get the London press to change their attitude towards RL.

There are some awesome deals available too (not sure I need Australian and NZ polo shirts as well as the England one, though!!) through amateur clubs.

We at Derby are getting our act together to take advantage.

If you are not linked to a local club; do yourself and them a favour and buy your tickets through them.

I'm feeling really positive about the WC, if it does fail, heaven forbid, it will not be for want of trying.

Very true. This time round they seemed to have engaged better with local authorities of host cities. In Bristol, for example, we now have someone working part time on programmes surrounding the World Cup with a view to driving ticket sales for the game at the "Mem". The communications department have also been very good at spoon feeding press release templates to the host cities, so we can try and keep the game (and the fact tickets have gone on sale) in the mind of the public. No doubt it will be a slog, but they seem to mean business this time around. Let's hope it catches the imagination of both the RL fans and the sporting public at large.

Bought tickets to 17 games yesterday, including the match in Bristol. More to come once kick-off times are confirmed (by the end of the year), and the "double deal" at Headingley works on-line. Wasn't working yesterday.

50,000 tickets sold by close of office hours today, the first day they have been on general sale. Not a bad start, one year out from the start of RLWC 2013.

50,000 is a very decent start, and I've been impressed with the amount of stuff I've had thrown at me this week by the RFL. Even though I'm the sort of person who hasn't yet planned out what I'm doing this afternoon, never mind in twelve months' time, the World Cup is now very much on my radar.

The challenges seem to be:

1) Keeping up that momentum, keeping sales going through the next six months so 'panic mode' isn't required in the last six months
2) Securing some decent sponsors, including a headline sponsor. These are striking by their absence from the excellent World Cup website.
3) Sorting out a TV deal/schedule that ensures this tournament reaches a large domestic TV audience, while covering its costs.

I don't know where I'll be going, but I can't wait. The RFL and its partners seem to know what they're doing, it's up to RL fans to put their pathetic prejudices aside and attend the games. Sadly, not all RL fans are like South Wakefield Sharks.

I can confirm 30+ less sales for Scotland vs Italy at Workington, after this afternoons test purchase for the Tonga match, £7.50 is extremely reasonable, however a £2.50 'delivery' fee for a walk in purchase is beyond taking the mickey, good luck with that, it's cheaper on the telly.

When you say 'headline sponsor' do you mean Title Sponsor? If so I'd prefer we don't go down that route. 100% agree about needing to start getting sponsors on board though. It often surprises me that more SL/NRL sponsors do not transfer to becoming International sponsors.

Yes I do to be honest. Don't get me wrong, it would be great if we can afford to go without a title sponsor, but if it significantly increases the value of the sponsorship I'd favour the cash over the aesthetics.
