How good could the World Cup have been?

56 posts in this topic

Just over 41,00 watched the opener to the 1995 World Cup if we can get that at Cardiff I would be over the moon that would be a great start to the World Cup

 

I reckon we'll smash that with a crowd between 50-60,000.

If we can start off with a record crowd for an opening rlwc game it could be billed to the press strait away as record breaking World Cup which if marketed right would go on to bringing sponsorship back to the game, international success has that kind of effect in my opinion !!

am I imagining this but wasn't there monster trucks/cars at the 95' wembley opening ceremony?

That would be awesome, not sure if they've been approached but former league and union welsh legends Gareth Thomas, Jonathan Davies, Scott Gibbs/quinnell etc could help with the promotion of the double header you'd think?

I've not got my tickets yet, neither have my family.  

 

I will be going, but the total expenditure will be worked out closer to the time when I know how much I can afford to spend. There will be a lot of fans at the moment in this quandry from the top 8 sides.  

 

Anyone in the top 8 can have a chance of reaching the GF and whilst that lasts, those fans are going to be holding fire on how much to spend on the WC.

 

I can see me going to the games at Saints, maybe a semi and final. However a GF appearance may knock  a semifinal or a Saints game on the head.

 

Money is tight so spending in advance is not realistic especially with holiday spending money yet to be decided etc.

 

 

I'm pretty confident that the WC will be a great event and if I miss out due not to being able to pre-purchase, then as disappointed as I will be for me, I will be more than pleased for RL.

I don't think so. 

 

The opening ceremony was genuinely dire. It seemed they blew all their budget on Diana Ross and the rest was just two dancers dressed in white t-shirt and shorts carrying a flag of each country.

 

It was genuinely dire. The final was a bit better, but not much!
