More tickets just released for England v France by popular demand

11 posts in this topic

A further 1,000 standing tickets have just been made available for Sunday’s eagerly-anticipated Autumn International Series final at Salford City Stadium between England and France (5.00pm).

Following massive demand from fans across the country, the RFL today took the decision to release the last batch of tickets for the stadium’s North Stand to allow as many people as possible the opportunity to witness England’s last full international ahead of the 2013 Rugby League World Cup.

After Sunday, England will not see action until the summer’s International Origin against the Exiles, their last opponents before the opening fixture of RLWC2013 against Australia in Cardiff on Saturday October 26, 2013.

RFL Communications Director Niel Wood said: “The final has really caused a stir among supporters and we are delighted by the response we’ve seen at the Ticket Office. The opportunity to get behind England ahead of their assault on next year’s World Cup is clearly attractive to the fans, I am sure they will be in full voice on Sunday. The all-standing South Stand is already full and this morning more calls for tickets mean we have less than 50 seated tickets unsold in the East and West Stands.

“Although we now have an additional thousand tickets on sale we can’t promise that we will be able to sell tickets on the day so I would urge anyone who hasn’t yet got their ticket, seated or standing, to phone the Ticket Office or go online as quickly as possible to make sure they don’t miss out.”

Salford City Stadium is hosting international competition for the first time on Sunday and Rugby League fans have been clamouring to attend the historic event, which will see England start as red-hot favourites.

England have been in inspiring form so far in the Autumn International Series and with a full strength squad to select from, national coach Steve McNamara has indicated he will select his strongest possible line-up to face the French.

Sunday’s opponents are still smarting from their defeat at the hands of England at Hull last Saturday and have stepped up preparations with the intention of setting the record straight.

Tickets for the final of the 2012 Autumn International Series cost just £12 for adults and £6 for concessions and can be purchased by calling 0844 856 1113 or by visiting www.rugbyleaguetickets.co.uk

There has been much criticism of this tournament but the support given by the fans at Lens, at Hull and now at Salford is superb. The support given to England team and the opportunity to see the probable World Cup squad ahead of 2013 bodes well for the success of that event.

Jump around folks. Let's burst that stadium at the seams.

I think the sensible ticket prices have been a big plus.

we need a hit out before the australia game...give cumbria a ring

Agreed! Give Cumbria ring! No brainer! Get the match date set ASAP and hold it at the newly refurbished Derwent Park. Promote it as part of the build up to World Cup. Cumbrians in Super League and the Championship would all know at the beginning of the season that they have the opportunity to represent their county in arguably the biggest Cumbrian representative games in recent times (a full strength England team). It would be cracking for the game up in Cumbria and it would certainly get the whole county in the mood for the Rugby League World Cup!

I agree entirely. My appetite for International RL was whetted last year in the four nations. The prices were amazingly low and I was tempted and enjoyed the whole thing immensely. So when the RLWC was announced and the tickets wers still reasonable, I was sold from the start due to the lower priced tickets from the four nations re igniting my passion for the International game.

And still not a single mention in today's Guardian which previously had managed half a page for a womens' RU international.
