Over 65,000 tickets have already been snapped up for the Magic Weekend, which features seven extraordinary Super League matches over two memorable days in the special surroundings of the Etihad Stadium, Manchester, on Saturday and Sunday, May 25 and 26.

 

Surprise no one has made much of a deal about a new crowd record being set for the Magic Weekend? 

 

Here are the previous totals for comparison:

2007: 58,831

2008: 63,144

2009: 59,741

2010: 52,043

2011: 60,241

2012: 63,716

 

With a few more days to the event, plus walk ups, there is a chance this event could hit the 70K mark.

In the bestest world peace speech mode I hope people get to as many games as they can, rather than just watch their team and leave.

Looks like it is Hull FC doing this offer as you need to pick the tickets up from the KC in advance - maybe they are giving up their commission on the tickets to drive sales?


I dont know Dave but we sold our first allocation and its been reported by the club we have sold more tickets than any other club.

Looking elsewhere on the forum, I thought this thread was in doubt?

Looking forward to it. The matches look very hard to call, especially with Cas & Salford having had recent changes.

Looking at the only groupon on offer for this, it is a Hull FC deal rather than an RFL one.

I know that Saints are on their third allocation, having sold out their second in two days! (Probably helped that we beat Leeds on Monday though)  If this is the theme throughout Superleague then there could be a good crowd over the weekend, especially if walk-ups are added.

I hope somehow the speccies for the Manchester Games can also be tempted too. And vice versa too.

Tends to follow the basis that anyone who has attended one of these loves it, those that havent grumble about it.

Yes indeed. I remember after the first one in Cardiff this board was full of people declaring it a failure and rubbish.....who hadn't even been. It's brilliant and think I will be going on Sunday after all. STGE*

Yes, and what with Wakefield having two awful weeks on Humberside in succession. It's a bit odd that Saints aren't playing Wigan, but I suppose it gives Widnes more of a chance of picking up two points against Salford.

 

Personally I like the idea/concept, but I do not like the fact that teams don't play each other a fixed number of times throughout the season when there's a shield to play for and playoff spots too.

Nothing new though - we had that stupid play half the league 3 times rule not so long back which was even worse. Luckily just one match doesn't make too much of an impact on final standings especially as we don't currently have relegation.

Just got tickets for Sunday. Looking forward to it now despite the likely thrashing.

It's great that Saints aren't playing Wigan.  We're sick of playing Wigan!  We played them 6 times in 2011 and about 5 times in 2012.  Glad of the change in scenery myself.

Whilst I can live with repeat fixtures - for Magic I think they need to keep it fresh. Handpicking games like they have seems to have done the trick with ticket sales, derbies aren;t always great games.

 

If they perhaps had Wire v Wigan next year and Saints v Leeds, they could return to the derby the year after and keep it fresh.

Finally got my tickets.  A bit complicated as one of the party is disabled.

 

A word for the RFL on this matter - your staff on the phone are incredibly nice and helpful.  Good work!


That's me.  I'm done.
