Great effort Brooza!

 

I have managed to get together a group of about 30-35 people for the Big Hit. We are jumping on the back of the tickets bought by St Albans but there are plenty of RL first timers in the group. Two of the group have even bought tickets for the opening ceremony, plus both PNG games at Hull KR.

Has there been much publicity of the "half price" special? Or of the "100 days to go" milestone being reached?

Are all those "sold out" sections of Millennium Stadium I now see on the RLWC tickets page for the opener actually sold out?

 

And why are they STILL not selling seats in really good areas, like in front of the half-way line? Are they for tour groups from Oz etc?

You can still get the odd single seat in some of the areas and there a few seats left in the £40 areas but not many at all. I think for ease of purpose and user friendliness, the organisers have made the decision to push supporters to the other areas.

The problem I had was that I left my list of matches I was planning on going to at work, so I had to guess. Think I have a couple more to buy still

 

EDIT: Scotland are the only country I'm not seeing. Will have to add at least one more match

Really jealous of this list mate!

 

Unfortunately due to funds, other commitments etc. I have had to pull right back on the games we are going to be able to attend.

 

Only confirmed the Double Header, NZ v Samoa, Scotland v Italy and the Final.

 

I am hoping to find reasonable flights for Wembley and that would mean seeing almost a quarter of all games live, which I'm ahappy with, but gutted I can;t make Huddersfield or Limerick.

Just got my opening ceremony ticket. tenner with the 100days code! happy but i wprry that its too cheap and will have the tickets sold but people dont turn up effect. luckily i live in cardiff so no issue for me, but i can understand people not turning up given that travel and accommodation will be so much more than th ticket. still the sold out bays looks good so far!

Crusaders RL to get a franchise for 2012 onwards -WRONG
Widnes Vikings also to get a franchise - RIGHT
Crusaders RL to do the double over Widnes and finish five places ahead of them -WRONG
Widnes Vikings NOT to dominate rugby league in years to come! STILL TO COME

I promise to pay �10 to the charity of Bomb Jacks choice if Widnes Millionaires finish above the battling underdogs Crusaders RL. I OWE A TENNER!

It seems from this that Scotland will play PNG in a World Cup warm up game.

This is a great offer and I assume for today only - get them while you can - tickets at Wembley as low as £10 per person!!!

 

All tickets (at least all the ones I've tried it with) are half price using the promo code "100DAYS".

 

 

After a bit of digging around seems its valid till the 22nd.

Just had an email from visit England subject - RLWC 2013

 

http://maxemail.visi...r/177902/e/3567

 

Impressed that the marketing is getting to such areas.

 

Also this on their blog part of the site - pictures are a bit large and scary though...

Personally I find it strange from my perspective that I went to approx. 10 Internatioanls of all sorts in my first 8 years of watching RL then I haven't been to one since 1993.

Trying to buy a couple for the final and it won't let me buy 2 together. Which indicates it is either practically full or there is something wrong. I can't spare any more time arsing about, it is boiling and I have work soon.
