World Cup - General Discussion (Merged Threads)

With one year exactly to go to the Rugby League World Cup Final 2013, tournament organisers have announced that less than 10,000 of the ‘Early Bird’ tickets remain on sale.

The Early Bird offer is a perfect Christmas Present.

Fans buying a ticket for The Rugby League World Cup Final receive a £5 discount on every ticket and a RLWC2013 beanie which will be delivered in time for Christmas.

The Rugby League World Cup Final takes place at Old Trafford, the home of Manchester United on November 30 2013. Senior United players and Rugby League fans Rio Ferdinand, Ryan Giggs and Wayne Rooney took time out from training this week to show their support by being photographed with the Rugby League World Cup trophy.

RLWC2013 General Manager, Sally Bolton said: “Old Trafford is a fantastic venue and one of the reasons that the final is selling so well, even with one year to go. So well in fact, that if sales continue as they have been, the remaining 10,000 ‘Early Bird’ tickets will go before the December 17 deadline, so fans wanting be at the final really should buy now.”

RLWC2013 Ticketing Manager, Kevan Williams added: “We have been really busy selling tickets every day since they went on sale. We’ve sold tickets across the country and worldwide.

Only 31% of sales have been in Super League towns and cities and we’ve had fans as far away as Australia, Russia, the USA and even Japan buying tickets.”

Re post #5. I was just trying to figure out how many tickets had been sold to date. Therefore if I knew how many early bird tickets there were and the OP is telling me that they are almost sold out, I could get a handle of just how well the sales are going. I am very interested in this tournament and how well or nor the ticket sales are going.

as has been pointed out before the wording of these releases has been clever.

Id like to think sales are genuinely good, and with the use of the phrase 'only 10k remaining' youd like to think that well over 10k have already gone.

My problem with the final is the ko time, as if it's 6 or 8pm I wouldn't be able to get a train back to mid-Wales.

Sounds like a hotel and a night out in Manchester to me. It won't be in the UK again for at least 8 years. The kick off times will have been set to suit TV. They dictate everything these days seeing as how they cough up the cash.

I can only see England and Australia/NZ hosting the RLWC with some games in NZ, France, Wales, Ireland and Scotland in 2016 and 2020.

I may be wrong but I thought Australia/NZ had already committed to host the 2016 World Cup so it will be seven years ( OK I said 8, I was wrong) before it is on British soil again.

I thought it's already been confirmed that they're running on a 4 year cycle now. With 2013/2017/2021 chosen to avoid the football WC, Euros and RUWC cycles

It is. It was delayed from 2012 to 2013 to put us in a 4 year cycle without major competition from either the soccer Euros or World Cup or the Olympics.

If 50,000 RLWC tix were sold on day 1, and 5-to-1 of them were for the final, that means - by my rough guestimate - about 30,000 tix for the final have been sold???

So with "10,000" left, maybe 40,000 tix (or about half of Old Trafford) were in the "early bird" offer.

does that sound about right????

That would make sense as someone at RFL told me they hoped final would be half sold out by Xmas.

There have been tweets saying that the 10,000 left last week is now 7000, so that seems like pretty good sales.

It's actually a great Christmas present idea.

I'm hoping that my family will have bought me a ticket, I've tried hinting and blatantly asking for one!

I can get a decent seat for £25, including a hat - pretty good as far as I'm concerned!
