World Cup - General Discussion (Merged Threads)

1,686 posts in this topic

2,179 seats (+ General Admission) have now been sold for Limerick.  I've also noticed that additional price types have been added to the Limerick game, including Family tickets and group discounts. 

 

As for Millennium Stadium, in addition to the bays on the Eastern side which we had discovered were primarily sold out before, Category 2 Bays, 31 and 29, plus Category 1 Bay, 32 on the Western side appear to now be full as well.

 

This means we have now filled 30 of the 42 lower bowl bays, (which equates to roughly 16,800 tickets) and 19 of 38 middle bay tickets (which is another 9,000).  Ticketmaster is now selling into Category 6 and 7 on the Upper Tier by default now which is encouraging, and of course the greyed out bays on the Eastern side for lower and middle tiers we assume as sold out (another 2,000 tickets).   I wonder if it is the same for those bays on the Western side... regardless, we are now sitting at 28,000+ tickets moved for Millennium, with the venue ticking over nicely. 

 

If my guesstimates are near to the truth, that is roughly 2,000 tickets moved in 7 days.  If that trend could be sustained, that's another 37,000 odd tickets we'd move by tournament kick off...  65K in a 72.5K venue would be deemed pretty successful by most involved.

Was planning my world cup itinerary on Saturday. Should manage to get to 24 of the 28 matches. The first week after the opening ceremony weekend is quite exciting as there is a trip to Rochdale Monday, Workington Tuesday, Bristol Wednesday, then Eurostar to Avignon for the match on Friday before flying back home Saturday morning in time for the England v Ireland game at Huddersfield on Saturday afternoon, before shooting down the M62 to watch the Aussies v Figi at St Helens Saturday evening, then off to Wrexham on Sunday for Wales v USA.

 

Best pop into work on the Monday before the PNG v Samoa game at Hull KR on Monday evening & Tonga v Cook Islands on the Tuesday. Heaven knows what I'll do on the Wednesday evening as there aren't any games. Suppose I can always watch them again on Premier Sports.

 

Can't wait!!

Is that doable? What sort of price has that set you back?

Just bought 5 tickets for the game at Cardiff, got some corking seats in the £20 section in U35...the same position in the middle tier is £99! Bought a Fiji-Ireland ticket as well so I could use the Scrum offer - £27 for three World Cup games is pretty good going I reckon!

 

Will also be going to the games at Leigh, Salford and the final but will buy those a little nearer to the time.

Just bought 2 more for the final and 2 for bristol.

 

Good to see a 3 sides open for Bristol.

 

Will get more closer to the time - depending on how many brownie points I can get between now and then!

Interestingly you can only buy 6 tickets together in U35, 4 in U4 and just 3 in U25. If that is the case, it is a good indication the upper tiers are selling very well.

 

I hope they open the West and East Stand Upper Tier soon as that is where I am aiming to get tickets.

East Stand 2 is sold out (got my ticket in there) and East Stand 1 allows you to buy only 8 tickets together. You can't seem to get any tickets in South 1 either (but 2 is open) so not sure if that is sold out. All in all, looks like tickets at Bristol are selling reasonably well, which is great news.

Eurostar tickets aren't on sale yet, but should cost £67.50 for the 7:01 out of St Pancras. Change in Paris and get the 11:07 to Avignon arriving 13:49. Kick-off is 8pm, though I'm arriving the day before.

 

Reckon it's a few hours kip after the match back at the hotel, then a 3am drive to Lyon to catch the 5:50am TGV to Paris, arriving 7:59 with plenty of time before the 11am flight to Leeds-Bradford (£111.70) arrive 11:30 England time, which provides plenty of time to drive to Huddersfield for the 2.30pm kick-off.

Excellent SWS, good trip that one.

Two of the three Grandstand sections at Workington are sold out (bar individual tickets) for the Scotland vs Tonga match. It will be a belter as well I reckon.

 

Even more seats sold in the Scotland vs Italy game. Only two seats together are available in one of the three Grandstand sections whilst the middle one is sold and the third only having individual seats.

 

The Grandstand at Hull KR for the Samoa vs PNG game doesn't seem to have any seats available at all!

Booking my tickets for the opening ceremony tonight. I hope theres going to be space for four as im bringing my bruv, dad and his girlfriend. Hope its gonna be a cracker what with it being my first live game.

Would any one be able to offer sone advice on seating as I have only watched the game on TV and dont know if its worth splashing the cash for some expensive seats or not.

I think a lot of the places may have a "view from my seat" function.

The ticketing system for the 1995 WC was a bit if a shambles all round. Seem to remember that was one of the reasons why the RFL set up their own ticket department.

I recall some tickets were sold by Synchro Systems (?).

I also was set to go with my dad, but didnt as we heard 'sold out', which turned out not to be the case

WC2000 opener, Twickers, I called Ticketmaster who after lengthy on hold music advised only singles left. Then rang RFL and found different

Morale of the story is that ticket agencies are only interested in selling their allocation, not the event

I've just had difficulty booking 4 grandstand tickets for each of the 2 games at Workington, but got there, though will be sitting separately to the family.

After the re-furb of DP and new seats I'd guess the grandstand holds around 1200-1300?

Maybe there's a case for getting in a temporary stand structure for behind the posts at one end? There's space on the speedway track for this and their season will have finished.

Synchro are actually owned by Ticketmaster these days. The World Cup sales are all on a central system via Ticketmaster - each venue logs on to the same website and effectively 'sell' the tickets in almost exactly the same manner as if you were buying them online. The seat availability and the like will be controlled by RLWC Ticketing.

Your right it does......probably operator error at the weekend!

Must have searched incorrectly at the weekend as it didn't give a full fixture listing.

Are you sure about that ?????? Maybe demand is so weak they haven't put it on sale at all yet ??

maybe they are waiting for the tens of thousands of rabid internationalists from Australia to purchase their tickets.

Hopefully, yes !!!

 

I'd love to go but I can't get the time off work.   :-(

 

And a bit more promotion of the event here in Oz wouldn't go astray ... plus, years of bad/irregular/non-existent RLWC scheduling hasn't helped.

 

By the 2017 RLWC in Oz, we may get a lot more interest/anticipation here as it will be the first RLWC event EVER to be held 4 years after the previous one !!!!
