After I wrote that I noticed that Hull KR have already sold 3k and had a further 2k sent on.

I was basing it on the fact that the game got 20k in the league where over 10k will have been in on season tickets. I would expect this would be lower, but will be very happy if I'm wrong about that.

Dave, if the KC draws 16k for a pre season friendly between the two clubs where everybody paid, then a sell out looks highly likely for arguably the biggest game between the two for thirty years.

At least, that's what the media over here are claiming it is.

Me? I have no recollection of a big game between the two in 1980. Clearly shum mishtake....

Some folk were queueing for tickets from 4.30am Monday ohmy.gif , apparently, if you read this article. Seems if you read the comments underneath, the girlieball fans are feeling a little threatened at the prospect of a sell out at the KC for rugby...

For those of you out there still in doubt.....

 

Old Faithful, we roam the range together, Old Faithful, in any kind of weather, when the round up days are over, and the Boulevard's white with clover, for you Old Faithful pal of mine.

 

Giddy up old fella 'cause the moon is yellow tonight, giddy up old fella 'cause the moon is mellow and bright, there's a coyote howling at the moon above, so carry me back to the one I love, for you Old Faithful pal of mine.

Hope you are right mate, just being conservative I suppose after seeing so many below par crowds in playoff an cup games.

There is an extremely high level of interest in the Hull derby. Folk who normally have no interest in the game have been asking me to get tickets for them. I expect this game to sell out with a 23,000+ gate. It is rare for a play off fixture gate to exceed the corresponding league gate, but this will prove the exception.

And I will miss it all due to a badly timed holiday! sad.gif

Looks like you are right mate, apparently there are only 7.5k tickets left, meaning that 15.5kish have been sold, excellent effort so far!
