Going by the figures going round. It looks like about 25,000 could have already been sold which I think is a great effort this far out. Anyone know any different?

I think the organisers released a press release that 50,000 had been sold in the first week (for all matches). I would hope that sales must be now be heading towards 100,000.

Personally I've not bought any yet because I'll be travelling with my amateur club on (hopefully) special deals for the club including transport or packages including replica shirts etc...when these deals are released I expect there to be another big boost to ticket sales.

I was specifically talking about the final. They said they send out 18,000 beanie hats last week where they also said there were 10,000 cheper tickets left. With now only 1,000 of these left as reported by twitter, over 25,000 should have been sold.

I know of one with tickets for the final + one other match and 3 polo shirts (each) for £65

Surely you guys are not coming to the final from the MIDLANDS are you. Whatever next ? No seriously, it shows the geographical attraction of the game in this day and age. Have a great day out.

Details have been released for about 4 months now mate, suggest you get your club man onto Ray Tennant to get all you need. Its an absolute no brainer for Community Clubs to use as a fundraiser and couldnt be easier to sort out.

I know, who'd've thought it.... you know every year thousands drive to Wembley and between Junction 30 and Junction 14 of the M1 they are never more than 20 minutes from a Community RL club!

The encouraging aspect for the tournament now is that after the first day sales and the successful early bird promotion the tournament has reached a nice base to build on over the next year.

Every game that has been on sale since the start (which is most of them) has moved an encouraging number of tickets which will make it easier to encourage additional sales simply for the fact people are now locked in to go.

It's great seeing at venues like Millenium, Old Trafford & Wembley that certain bays are now sold out, and even for games like England v Fiji, Fiji v Ireland, England v Ireland, Tonga v Italy certain bays are already full. Even the unknown entity that is Ireland v Australia in Limerick has moved over 1,000 seats.

We just need to the event to keep trickling through until the Super League season kick off where naturally it will get a lift once Rugby League is a core focus. Hopefully the RFL has their grass writers ready to put RLWC promos on every Super League & Championship ground this season just to keep getting the message out there to all the people who watch the sport, or catch highlights.

Think this World Cup will be very good for the game here in Ireland. When I try and get people to watch rugby league they just say 'ah, I never watch that'. It's not that they do watch it and dont like it. Once there is greater publicity and awareness of the sport I think there will be many more supporters, players and teams as a result. Not sure about the Australia game though; yes there is a chance to watch some of the worlds best but a 40/50 + hammering mightn't be the best advert.

Yes its a tricky one to balance.

Hopefully I will be at this game too.

That's great news all around. Just wondering about games in France. Have they started selling yet?

And wonder if people are buying RLWC tickets to give as christmas pressies to loved ones too?

France isn't on sale yet which is surprising, but that said the two French games will possibly be two of the easier games to sell in the whole tournament.

I'm glad to hear that Coventry will be winning the Challenge Cup 6 years in a row and then jetting out to Brisbane to beat the Broncos in their own back yard :)

I'd like to think that both will sell out. I know Avignon put out a lot of freebies for England last year but 17,000 was a more than decent response. The local SOA are on the rise and there's a good feel for the game up in Vaucluse these days. With the World Champions NZ there it should be doable with the new Federations President Carlos Zalduendo leading the charge. Surely Stade Brutus in Perpignan for Samoa must be sold out at just 12,000. Nice to see them hit 30,000 though wouldn't it.
