Cup Final Ticket Info, anyone?

I don’t think they allocate tickets to the 1895 teams, last year they were all over Wembley but then moved together behind the goals after the CC had finished and people had cleared off. 

According to the Wakefield site they have been given tickets for the East Stand, but Wire will be given the prime behind the sticks seats - so I expect the Wakey fans will just move when the Wire fans leave after their game.

The first thing you need to do achieve that is to scrap the constant double headers and lumping the men's and women's game in together. Both games need to be treated as standalone events in their own right.

So, you'd lose money on paying the women's final as a standalone day at Wembley, because, now the final has been played there, it can't go back to Warrington or wherever.

Thanks. England v Iceland in a friendly though, who on earth would go to that. 

I did in 2004. A thrilling 6-1 win at a sunny City of Manchester Stadium.

I won't be going this time though, as I'm already getting my Wembley fix this Sunday for the play-off final.

I would have been tempted with the CC Final this year (especially now that it's Wigan vs Warrington), but a family wedding on the same day has stuffed things up.

I was replying to a quote about women's internationals and creating a market for them and am talking about creating a market for the women's game generally.

A final at a major ground is about the only game I'd make an exception for because it is evidently what the players themselves want.

Look to be plenty of tickets left behind the posts on the Wigan site but the system is that poor it's a real slog to try and buy anything through the club at the minute. The sales to season ticket holders happened for the first few days but even if you had 20 season tickets, you could only buy a maximum of 4 in one transaction, so I think plenty just cut out the hassle and went direct to the RFL.

I expect that Warrington have kept paper tickets at the stadium, so there will be loads of tickets in the lower bowl yet.

Is it outdated for us to be selling tickets in person nowadays?

Looking at the Bolton website for the EFL playoffs, they had 36.5k tickets and all had to be bought online. Aren't people used to buying online now?

If we did it all online, there'd be letters to the paper moaning that they know people without the internet.

Good luck, I’m sure the whole country other than Leeds fans want Southampton to win.

Online Wire have no lower tier tickets left at all. All you can get is the upper tier blocks along the side of the pitch. 

All the lower tier has been allocated to Wakefield that's where my 6 tickets are for

I heard the RFL were considering moving the 1895 final to the Maracana so all the Wakey fans could get in.

Wow 34,000 that's impressive from Wakefield, such a shame that 2 great fan bases like Wire and Wigan can only share what's left!

Nay, surely the planet Jupiter is the only place big enough now they've beat a few part time teams and gained a million fans.

I thought Wigan and Wire were exceptional in the semi's.  I went to site today to get a couple of tickets and there are only 9 blocks available to buy in the top tier (cat 3 & 4).

I wanted the Cat 1 or 2 tickets and I can't buy them.

I may go back and try again.  But there is a good chance I won't.

I'd love this to be a sign that ticket sales are going well - but, well, we've been here before!

We took the extra 34 seats Huddersfield had allocated prior to being destroyed at the weekend 😊

You clearly select the parts you want to read. A Wire fan commented that the whole East Stand bottom tier had been blocked out. Trinity have been allocated sections in there.

No. You explicitly wrote "All the lower tier has been allocated to Wakefield..." Nobody selected anything.

And it was me you replied to when I posted that Wire have no East Lower tier left online.

Yes I remember when England had 20k or less rattling round Wembley for Rous Cup games against Chile etc. £85 is absurd though, and there’ll be more than a handful of dimwits booing the Icelandic national anthem too.
