  1. World Cup Family Stand tickets almost gone By Ian Golden | 19/07/2013 Rugby League World Cup organisers in Neath are delighted to announce that the Family Stand at The Gnoll has virtually sold out for the Wales v Cook Islands match on Sunday 11th November (kick-off 2pm). Just 22 tickets remain for this stand, the cheapest price bracket in regards to seating, but they are no longer available from the Rugby League World Cup website. These can only be bought from the official Neath RFC and South Wales Scorpions websites. This news comes less than two weeks before the actual World Cup trophy arrives in Neath as part of the UK-wide trophy tour. The Family Stand tickets have been snapped up mainly by school parties following a surge of interest as news of the trophy coming to The Gnoll escalates. Phil Davies, chairman of South Wales Scorpions and Neath RFC, said: “We’re delighted that the Family Stand for Wales v Cooks Islands is close to selling out. It shows that popularity for the World Cup in Neath is increasing, especially amongst schools. “As a result of this, sales in other areas are also increasing, The Town End ‘shed’ terrace behind the goal is going well and there are just 415 tickets available in the Grandstand. “We are confident that we will have a sell out before the day of the match and we advise all fans to buy their tickets sooner rather than later. “In the meantime, if you want to have your photo taken with the actual World Cup trophy, please turn up at The Gnoll on Sunday 28th July for South Wales Scorpions’ match against Gateshead Thunder which kicks off at the earlier time of 1pm. We’re expecting a big interest so you can book your photographs for free on our website www.scorpionsrl.com.”
