So who has been buying tickets since the timings were announced.Looking very much like a full house for the Final and the Wembley games,would say 35/40,000 be a good achievement/target for Cardiff?

They keep mentioning a sellout for Cardiff which would be brilliant and quite a few sections are open now.
Ill be buying tickets for that soon although Im finding transport there a pain.

4 hours between kickoffs would only leave 2 hours to get between grounds.

 

2 hours between kickoffs means that clubs could show the other match on the big screen before/after their own match, perhaps?

I also have hotel rooms booked in Cardiff, Chester, Wigan, Wembley and Manchester.

Due to a schoolboy error by me (proposing and therefore having a wedding to pay for) I won't be able to attend half as many games as I wanted to, however I'm still planning Cardiff, Wembley and Old Trafford trips - can't wait!

i'd be really disappointed if they only got that. The capacity is about 75000 so if the ground is only half full I think it wouldn't look great on tv.

:D  Unfortunately the wedding won;t have happened by then (but the saving will be in full flow!). Shame as she was really looking forward to following the World Cup, particularly Scotland. We'll have to see what happens I suppose!

No, they just won't open the top tiers, so the crowds in camera shot will look pretty good.

We met a couple in 2008 who were following England in the World Cup for their honeymoon, but I suppose Townville, Sydney & Melbourne in October have a fraction more appeal than Hull & Huddersfield.

I remember going there for the 2000 World Cup. Lashed down with rain all the way there and back. Best bit was seeing the two teams doing the haka. One team did it, then the other responded,then the first team had another go. Wasn't sure there was going to be time to fit a game in as well!

Does anyone know whether it's possible to be able to watch both Games #18 and #19??

 

I know of the Milford to Rosslare ferry but then I'd have to either get the train Rosslare-Dublin-Limerick Junction-Limerick which takes around 8 hours, or try to go from Rosslare to Waterford (by bus I presume) then Waterford to Limerick which I think is around 3 hours.

 

I would very much like to see both matches.

 

Anyone planning to go Limerick?
