Challenge Cup Final tickets selling at record rate

Almost 70,000 tickets have already been sold for the Challenge Cup final between Hull FC and Warrington Wolves.

Demand for tickets has been incredibly high since the semi-finals, with the RFL confirming that they are being sold at a record rate ahead of the August 27th Wembley showpiece.

Fans wanting to sit in the lower tier at Wembley Stadium are being advised to buy their tickets in the next few days – seats in this area are extremely limited and are anticipated to be unavailable by the end of this week.

Just over 80,000 people attended last year’s final, but initial ticket sales suggest that figure will be smashed for what is the first final between these two teams.

The RFL Marketing and Communications Director, Mark Foster is confident of another huge crowd in London for this major event.

“After Hull FC’s victory on Friday night, sales have been pretty much non-stop. There’s real excitement around this game having two of First Utility Super League’s top teams play each other.

“Both clubs are doing a fantastic job coping with the high demand for tickets from their fans. The RFL, Hull FC and Warrington were well prepared for the number of sales that would come in over the past few days.

“Last year’s attendance was fantastic but the way things are going I would strongly advise Rugby League fans to buy early to get the best seats.”
