World Cup - General Discussion (Merged Threads)

Awesome to hear, I think for the benefit of Rugby league in the UK, England making the final is a must, hoping for a great tournament and hopefully plenty of buzz comes out of it, hoping we get a thrilling Australian v England final, no offense to New Zealand but an England v Australia game in pretty much any sport is always more compelling due to the rivalry.

Should now be the time where the RFL start looking at SL and Championship season ticket holders?

On a side note, do you think the numbers going to cc final and grand final will be down due to this? Im going to both but can see the london fixture especially being a once a year trip for some. Shocked that the corporate sales are not out yet given the good selling rates of regular tickets

Challenge cup maybe depending on who gets there, therefore it might be good if a team with a large following who hasn't been there for a year or 2 makes it, for example Hull.

I think the Grand Final, due to it's location is less likely to be affected.

Personally I am lucky enough to be able to go to all the big games with the probable exception of the opening games in Cardiff

I'm probably still going to go to the CC Final, but I was going to go to my first GF this year but will be skipping that for the WC.

I'm certainly cutting down on the number of Rhinos matches I'm going to this year because of the World Cup

i'll be cutting back on Wire matches, including Magic Weekend so I can go to as many WC games as possible.

Hmm, I'd never thought of that. It seems you can have too much of a good thing and this year is about stretching limit.

Can't have too much of a good thing, but you can have too little money!

I've got the World Cup and State Of Origin to get to this year, means Leeds will have to take a hit! (Although to counter that, someone I introduced to the game a year ago has bought a Rhinos season ticket, so I've made up for my absence!

You obviously didn't let him know how Leeds usually operate pre-September.

Of course not!

But I only need him to cover for me this year, and he's already commited now

As with Brooza - the financial situation is certainly an issue. I'm in a slightly different situation in that I have a long distance to travel to make any RL games, but even if Wire did make Wembley again this year I'd have to seriously consider giving it a miss to go to the big World Cup events.

If it comesto a choice of England at Wembley, or the Challenge Cup at Wembley (which it well may be), then it will be England everytime.

I have that issue. And Leeds' preference for Friday night games means I need at least half a day off work to get to them.

World Club Challenge and Warrington are probably the only 2 I'll make it to this year

EDIT: Maybe London away, but I don't fancy that train ride on a Monday night

Do people think it's quite likely that there will be multi-buy discount offers for the Wembley double header at some point? I want to buy like 10 tickets, but I'll hold off if it's likely offers are going to pop up later in the year.

Aye - I'm glad my team have stayed with the Sunday fixtures as hopefully I'll get to a couple, but then we have a fair few Sky games now anyway!

I'll be using a few of my holidays and weekends away budget for the World Cup, I'm sure I wont regret it!

There's already an offer - buy 6 or more tickets and get a 10% discount - not massive granted, but will probably pay any fees and postage!

Personally I'd say if you want to sit in the lower bowl you are better getting in there now - if you aren't fussed then you could maybe wait.

Try checking with your local amateur club if you have one. Derby bought 50 before Christmas on a cashback deal and selling them with a big discount. I would think ours have all gone by now which is excellent.

I read that Hertz Van Rental are on board as the latest partners. Sounds decent.

Personally I thought he was a Dutch footballer...

  • Large chunks of the main grandstand in Avignon have now been sold.
