Pleasantly surprised by this. Don't see what's so special about this year that it sold out whereas previous years haven't.

I hope it has sold out because people in Wigan are genuinely excited by the development of this young, largely home grown team. In addition, we seem to have heavily promoted the game - maybe in previous years we assumed the game would sell itself. I read that Saints were some way short of selling out their end, so there will be a fair few Wiganers there. That will be odd.
That London crowd looks like an impossible dream from a golden era, compared to the likely 2 figure crowd tonight...

Wigan's marketing team have been doing a lot of work on this game, and many others for that matter. It won't actually be a novelty for it to sell out though as this is reasonably regular for the GF game when its at Wigan.

I'm off to the Salford vs Huddersfield game this afternoon. Does anyone think it will be sold out or will I be able to get a ticket on the gate? :lol:

What was the crowd at Esher last night? :ph34r:

All indications are there could go above the 17000 mark today which will be a great effort.

Given as 1134 - conspiracy theorists probably have a differing opinion.

Thanks, CoC, but I wasn't being serious. I was suggesting our crowd might be even lower, hence the hidden face. It won't be lower, but it won't be great, either.

By the by, it sounds like Broncos gave it a damn good shot last night.

I thought that less than 15000 at Leeds was very very poor when you consider maybe there were 2500/3000 Bulls fans there meaning around 12000 locals this fixtures should be at least 18/20000.


There weren't less than 15000 at Leeds. Attendance was 16,604.

Just to be clear, is 16,604 less than 15,000 now, or is this just one of your insider knowledge conspiracy theories?

facts?! You crazy fool, what do they have to do with anything! League fans make me laugh, the nrl had 51k and 40k for two games and people on league unlimited are still finding things to moan about, here we have a long weekend of televised games with very decent crowds and league fans can still moan! How do people live in such constant misery? Amazing.

23,800 a great crowd and a sellout. :D

What does it mean
This tearjerking scene
Beamed into my home
That it moves me so much
Why all the fuss
It's only two humans being.
