In a recent article in the Sydney Morning Herald ( don't know how to create a link) about the 2014 four nations, it states the world cup has already made a profit, based on ticket sales and the tv contract. So thankfully the horrors of the 2000 world cup wont be repeated. This is such positive news, all those thinking of buying tickets do so now. Its money in the bank for the growth of our game. How good will it be to see full houses for televised England matches on national television. We can ##### and moan but this tournament is the pinnacle of our game in our own back yard, how lucky we are.

I do seem to remember a statement to the effect that the 2000 RLWC was guaranteed to make a profit before a ball being kicked. It didn't quite turn out like that.

We have sold over 40'000 tickets already for the final, bit different to 2000. They eventually decided to give them away, I know because I bought some and was proper miffed. Either way we can be all negative and not turn up and complain about how its watched by a handful of fans, or we can buy some and encourage everyone we know to do the same.

If this is true, and I await the usual to say it isn't and their mate said there are only 3 tickets sold, this is the beginning of that "sold out - must see" event vibe we've been so envious of when it comes to our kick and clap friends.

The question people need to ask themselves is how many times in their lifetime are they going to be able to watch Fiji, Samoa, Papua new guinea and the United States playing the game they love. The answer is not many, by its nature its a must see event (if you love rl).

Agreed, but that's only for the RL fan "half", the other "half" should be from those who know nothing of the game but it's an event that's selling really well so maybe it's worth checking out, a la the Olympics.

Obviously big Nige giving the Ashes tour in 2015 a hard sell.

The use of "host cities" to promote contests appears to be one good tool they have used to attract a non traditional audience. If it is true that they have already reached a profit, it may now be time to roll out some big advertisement in London and Cardiff ( posters on tube, on buses e.t.c )

I reckon a GB Lions v Oz tour in Oz in 2015 would be brilliant - and 4 years later reverse it and have Oz v GB in Britain - but what do all the other national teams do in the years of Ashes tests???

The 2008 world cup allegedly made a profit of about $5 million Aussie. We do need to make sure for the good of the game we make more this time.

Well they could either watch the tour on tv like everyone else, or say New Zealand could tour France and Wales?

If a little 'ole club like Derby City, which is only getting its first team going again after four years, can sell 50 tickets months before our season starts i can't for the life of me understand why it isn't sold out already.
In total we will have sold about150 tickets before kick off.

Derby City -It's our Silver Anniversary! Proud to be flying the flag for Rugby League in the Midlands for 25 years.

Buys your tickets and encourage friends and family to buy tickets, we have no big business like kick and clap to call on to buy tickets
