The opener of the wheelchair tournament at the Copper Box in London is also on track to be sold out, and England women's opener against Brazil at Headingley will be the biggest-attended standalone women's rugby league game in the northern hemisphere.'

It's all about selling out the opening England men, women and wheelchair games to generate momentum, it seems. 

I haven`t seen any wheel-chair League but by all reports it`s a very entertaining affair. I`m hoping if they get a fair bit of media for the first game and it doesn`t disappoint, the media coverage it receives could be a real driver for the rest of that part of our tournament. The feel-good factor surrounding that would reflect very positively on the League and could really give a positive boost to the rest of the tournament, not to mention Rugby League`s image.

There couldn’t be better advertisement/first impression opportunity for the wheelchair game than a winning England team playing at a full Copper Box in London live on national TV.

Let’s hope it cuts through, it deserves to.

It really is great. I'll admit I was sceptical before I saw it as I just couldn't see how RL could work in that format but if absolutely does. It is really watchable.

Exactly what I`ve heard.

It's RL on wheels. Very, unmistakably, RL. Much more "rugby" than "Wheelchair Rugby" which is a load of cack.

I really enjoy wheelchair rugby but it's not remotely rugby and it's kind of weird in that regard.

Looks like the advertising campaign is set to kick off tomorrow marking 50 days to go - seen these on twitter from St Helen’s & Newcastle

Nice, I wonder if this is where 75% of the marketing budget starts coming into play.

There has defo been an uplift in activity over the last couple of weeks.  Also,  I mentioned recently that there was a fair bit of promo in Wire,  whether that was RLWC budget or from Warrington's commitment,  I'm not sure. 

All good stuff tho.

All the toughness of the other kind of RL but with the extra risk of getting your fingers nipped between some cold steel.

I can confirm 30+ less sales for Scotland vs Italy at Workington, after this afternoons test purchase for the Tonga match, £7.50 is extremely reasonable, however a £2.50 'delivery' fee for a walk in purchase is beyond taking the mickey, good luck with that, it's cheaper on the telly.

Got a reply back from RLWC about whether they'll be selling seats rather than (seats in) a block. I was told only blocks were available but I could make a particular request if I wanted and they'd see what they could do. Right now, I'm not keen. It's really disappointing.

This is good but with the PDRL aren’t there FOUR trophies???

(Adam Hills is in the ad, after all)

It's not been grouped with the other three at any point and was announced as happening after the others.

Not sure why but it is being treated as separate.
