Just seen that the group B programme doesn't include France v NZ or France v Samoa, so they must be getting their own programmes (presumaby by a company other than Programme Master)

 

 

Incidentally, you can preorder all the programmes for £40 (plus £5 for the preview issue)

beIN Sport will be broadcasting RLWC2013 matches in France. Not sure how important that is, but I think they were the broadcasters linked with a Toulouse entry in Super League. Good figures in the World Cup, can't harm any potential link up there.

Sally Bolton on Radio Manchester says more tickets sold for Limerick than for Hull KR & 70% of tickets for Cardiff are sold to people outside the traditional areas.

Hmm that might say more about sales at Hull Kr than it does for Limerick given that the Limerick game is one of the few where you can get an idea of ticket sales due to being able to see which seats have been sold via Ticketmaster and there doesn't appear to be tons sold at this stage (albeit terrace sales aren't possible to track).

13,000 tickets sold for Avignon. For the Limerick game, they bid very strongly to get the game and Munster Union club were part of that consortium to bring the World Cup there. Each team in the World Cup will be having one open training session each week in the World Cup.

Apparently More corporate hospitality packages have been sold for this world cup than any other, according to a report on running rugby.com

 

Although i only imagine the last world cup would have had decent numbers for corporate sales.

 

The target for the volume of sales expected remains confidential but Running Rugby has been informed that it will be the “largest ever hospitality audience at a Rugby League World Cup” and sales are said to be gathering pace.

Good news. Though as you say, don't expect the bar had been set very high!

Saw something today too, that said the crowd for the 1972 World Cup final (the last high for our international team) was less than 5,000, so that puts this year's event into some kind of perspective. In rugby league terms it is looking like it will be a major success.

we need to remember that SWS - we should compare to our previous tournaments and look to make progress, not compare to other sports.

That was one of my first memories of international rugby league, the game being played in front of huge empty terraces.

There are few more powerful images in the history of our game, for me, than Sullivan's wonderful try in front of a near-empty stadium.

Edited by Just Browny, 26 September 2013 - 10:04 PM.

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.

As it stands from what we can see, 2,589 of the 6,925 seats available on the open side (East Stand) of Thomand Park have been sold.  The GA area in front of that stand can hold around 3,000.. 

 

Unless they are letting tour groups sell into the West Stand, I agree with Nathan, the statement by Sally wasn't very encouraging...

The 2000 World Cup opened in Belfast in front of a crowd of 3207, 1782 and 3164 were the two other crowds in Ireland at that World Cup. That gives you some idea of what rugby league has previously achieved in Ireland.

Oh understand that Ireland has never drawn big crowds before, with the current known Limerick crowd being in the top 5 crowds drawn in the country for an international of all time and the match on track to set a new record.

Was more worried about Hull if Limerick is supposedly selling better than it.

I have visions of having the new stand at HKR all to ourselves for PNG v France. It only appeared on the website a couple of weeks ago.

Impressed by the photos posted on Facebook today of how the opening ceremony will look.

 

Am at a wedding that day, but the over/under for the number of times I sneak out to get a peak of the telly is 17.5.
