World Cup - General Discussion (Merged Threads)

I'll keep updating this as we go along. Anyone else got any other matches to add?

I think the Hudds one is too low as well.

 

Only single tickets left in the Britannia Stand and one small section left in the John Smiths Stand, the second tier on the other GP end.

 

In the Direct Golf stand only the top tier is closed, with the rest sold out, and the top tier of the opposite end to the JS stand only has the top tier to sell - some of the sections are only allowing single ticket sales.

 

And one of their hospitality categories has sold out.

 

I imagine Hudds is more like 20,000

Is anyone else still waiting for tickets to arrive? I ordered 9 pairs and I've received them all except the pair for the ENG v IRE game. They were ordered at the same time I ordered some of the other ones but they didn't come with them.

Yeh I'm sure I heard the same I hope so because the Rochdale people really have got behind this game and put some genuine effort to get a good crowd and they fully deserve a sell out crowd, any ideas on the likes of Salford, Halifax ect not heard out

Yes, maybe we should have gone for a much smaller venue to make it look better for the TV. The game at Salford, Scotland v USA, I think, might also fit into this category. I think it will be lucky to hit 5,000 so lway less than half capacity. 

I've just booked myself a ticket for that. #209 in the North stand yesterday. Another 45 seem to have been sold in the last 24 hours in that stand

I ordered 2 for the final, then amended my order and added another 10 and got all 12 moved to a different row. The 2 have arrived, but the 10 haven't.

Looking at the website, I would say at least 1/2 of all tickets have been sold.  I don't know the capacity but this must mean about 6000-7000 sold already

Do you think that Wales will easily win the Group D?

No, the game against Cook Islands should be very even.

Not a chance! It'll be a really competitive group for Wales to qualify from, which is the way it should be.

If we are ever feeling down about this World Cup being a relative success at least, just take a look at the 2000 crowds... lol

Just booked 3 tickets tonight in the DG top tier block between halfway and 25 line on Row AA (is this front row?) and with half price code - bargain.

Anyone know if the 100 day code is still working or not?

It isn't - use 50days instead

 

On another point - how do you get tickets to specific seats or area?

I've tried that for the Leigh game, and it keeps giving me seats on row B, whatever I use. I don't want to be on Row B as too low down. Does it mean a phone call to be more specific about seats?
