Been impressed so far with the launch. Both coaches on BBC breakfast & Radio 5 Live as well as bbcsportsday giving it a good go. There's also a good piece on the bbc website about Sir Kev and now the live streaming.

Just got to keep the momentum building and get bums on seats

Noticed that Marketing agency McCanns Manchester were appointed partner this week with the main objective of helping to sell the 500k tickets target for the tournament.

All good stuff, it would appear at this stage that it won't be marketing that holds this tournament back.

All good stuff so far, which bodes well for the tournament as long as we build momentum. That being said there wasn't a dickie bird in the London papers today about tomorrow's game or todays media launch. Its going to be a very long hard slog to get the London press to change their attitude towards RL.

There are some awesome deals available too (not sure I need Australian and NZ polo shirts as well as the England one, though!!) through amateur clubs.

We at Derby are getting our act together to take advantage.

If you are not linked to a local club; do yourself and them a favour and buy your tickets through them.

I'm feeling really positive about the WC, if it does fail, heaven forbid, it will not be for want of trying.

Very true. This time round they seemed to have engaged better with local authorities of host cities. In Bristol, for example, we now have someone working part time on programmes surrounding the World Cup with a view to driving ticket sales for the game at the "Mem". The communications department have also been very good at spoon feeding press release templates to the host cities, so we can try and keep the game (and the fact tickets have gone on sale) in the mind of the public. No doubt it will be a slog, but they seem to mean business this time around. Let's hope it catches the imagination of both the RL fans and the sporting public at large.

Bought tickets to 17 games yesterday, including the match in Bristol. More to come once kick-off times are confirmed (by the end of the year), and the "double deal" at Headingley works on-line. Wasn't working yesterday.

50,000 tickets sold by close of office hours today, the first day they have been on general sale. Not a bad start, one year out from the start of RLWC 2013.

50,000 is a very decent start, and I've been impressed with the amount of stuff I've had thrown at me this week by the RFL. Even though I'm the sort of person who hasn't yet planned out what I'm doing this afternoon, never mind in twelve months' time, the World Cup is now very much on my radar.

The challenges seem to be:

1) Keeping up that momentum, keeping sales going through the next six months so 'panic mode' isn't required in the last six months

2) Securing some decent sponsors, including a headline sponsor. These are striking by their absence from the excellent World Cup website.

3) Sorting out a TV deal/schedule that ensures this tournament reaches a large domestic TV audience, while covering its costs.

I don't know where I'll be going, but I can't wait. The RFL and its partners seem to know what they're doing, it's up to RL fans to put their pathetic prejudices aside and attend the games. Sadly, not all RL fans are like South Wakefield Sharks.

When you say 'headline sponsor' do you mean Title Sponsor? If so I'd prefer we don't go down that route. 100% agree about needing to start getting sponsors on board though. It often surprises me that more SL/NRL sponsors do not transfer to becoming International sponsors.

Yes I do to be honest. Don't get me wrong, it would be great if we can afford to go without a title sponsor, but if it significantly increases the value of the sponsorship I'd favour the cash over the aesthetics.

fair enough, I'd prefer a panel approach like 2008, but as you point out, the lack of any sponsors so far may make this difficult!

That's just because I've got nowt better to spend my money on than watching international league Just Browny :rolleyes:.

Nice to meet up last week in Lens. Bumped into a couple of the Welsh lads in Wrexham this afternoon, but I think they were disappointed to see me wearing my true colours today!!

We need some quality sponsors for the World Cup. People who are either going to stump up some big cash, or do some good promotion. Travelling down the M62 today I recalled that (I think it was) Granada was the "official service station" of the 2000 World Cup. I remember calling in at several of them in the lead up to, and during the World Cup in 2000, and not seeing a single thing to do with the World Cup. That was a wasted opportunity.

We need sponsors who will use their markets to associate themselves with the World Cup and so bring the game to new audiences. Great to hear Sally Bolton talking about the need to use the World Cup as a way to bring the sport to new people, as the Olympics did. That's where the future audience for rugby league internationals is. Once momentum builds, the current support there is for club rugby league will then jump on board, but club supporters won't drive the international game as most of them put club before country every time.

Putting them on sale now, may seam a bit early, but for someone like me it is inspired. I struggle at the best of times to think of imaginative Christmas presents. Well here is a present for all the family a box of chocs and tickets for the Final and/or opening ceremony. Job done.

If they launched any later they would not be able to hit the christmas presents for people next year.

The family would go to watch the club side no questions asked, but internationals always seam like a bit of an extra. So it's always a should I shouldn't I question.
