My 10 tickets for the semi finals were delivered to my office today. Think I could've bought 20 and easily shifted them to my mates.

Only £12.50 through St Albans Centurions!

There's still a month to go until the first match!! Every year we get the same posts for the Challenge Cup final and Grand Final, yet I'm yet to hear any stories of anyone who didn't get their tickets in time, and wasn't able to resolve this by phoning the RFL?

I've paid a fair few quid in handling charges. Why should I have to pay more by having to ring the RFL?

You shouldn't. There's still a month to go. I've also emailed the RFL previously (to change the address my tickets were delivered to) and had a response straight away, so there's inexpensive options should the worst come to the worst

Ticketmaster often don't dispatch tickets until a couple of weeks before the event. Start to worry if you still haven't received your tickets with a week to go.

I'm getting twitchy because plenty of people are posting on here about the number of tickets they've received which include the same matches I've booked for but haven't got yet.

My tickets arrived the other week, for opener, had to stay in Gloucester though. I'm wanting to go to a few more games but as an RL fan I'm just waiting until last minute, although this probably won't work. Also waiting for outcome of the competition at work to conclude for final tickets.

Got all my tickets.

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.

Got none of mine yet out of 4 matches, but not worried yet.

Been a lot of good talk of ticket sales, be really good to see the first 'sold out' sign go up soon. Any thoughts as to where that would be? Avignon, Rochdale, Workington. Would love it to be Cardiff or Old Trafford though!

Huge Dance Programme launched for Rugby League World Cup 2013

 

 

 

This sounds great.  I know it's not directly about the rugby (although always nice to learn that someone is a Saints fan!) but IMO the build up and occasion itself are equally important to making this tournament stand out for fans and for viewers on TV too.  Listening to the video and learning about the staff involved, especially having someone who has done this sort of thing at the London Olympics, has left me somewhat impressed.  I also like the sound of the viral dance and I hope it catches on.  That could bring a real festival fun feel to the event as a contrast to the rugby battle taking place.

Out of the 11 matches I've bought tickets for I've so far only received 4 lots. I bought each match separately and the 4 lots I have received were the first 4 I purchased so I don't know if they are sending them out in the order they were purchased?

The tickets are all the same, its the print on them that changes, so people could be receiving them in order of having booke by LIFO or FIFO or it could be alphabetical or by quantities.... ive received tickets for the same games in two deliveries as they are in different blocks.... Yours will come and you can join everyone else in marvelling at them :D

Watching on tv is the next best thing I suppose, I'm in the same boat as you.

Does anyone know if there are any plans to do a DVD/Blu-Ray box set of the World Cup? Was given the one from the Olympics last year as a present and it is superb

I actually have not got tickets for the opener or the
final, and there's a real chance I might not be able to get to them anyway BUT....

It's a really new experience as an RL fan to not be assured of a ticket or even decide on the day of the match. I like it, something must be going right!

I remember getting my tickets for the 2000 final about 2 days before the event. I paid too.
