First sell-out for Rugby League World Cup
1:13pm Friday 18th October 2013 in Wolves news
ONE of England's Rugby League World Cup games is now sold out, while there is now standing room only at Warrington Wolves' Halliwell Jones Stadium for the clash between New Zealand and Samoa.
The England v Ireland game at Huddersfield is the first game to sell out.
Organisers are confident that the tournament will be the best attended Rugby League World Cup ever.
Since the Super League and NRL Grand Finals, interest in RLWC2013 has grown massively.
There are no seating tickets left at the Halliwell Jones Stadium, nor the Workington games where Scotland take on Tonga and Italy. In addition the Main Stand is completely sold out at Rochdale where Fiji play Ireland.
Tournament director Nigel Wood said: “It’s not just the smaller venues that are going well. The three flagship, premium events are well on the way to setting new records.
“The event at Cardiff is really one not to be missed. An amazing Opening Ceremony is followed by arguably the biggest game in international Rugby League when England take on Australia and co-hosts Wales play a fascinating-looking Italy team. All this under the closed roof of the Millennium Stadium points to an extraordinary opening day for this tournament.
“The Rugby League World Cup Final also continues to attract huge numbers. 60,000 tickets have now gone for the event at Old Trafford on November 30 as it also heads for a sell-out. We have already had to open up new parts of Wembley for the double header semi-final.”
RLWC2013 Marketing Manager Mark Foster said: “Fans are catching World Cup fever and the level of interest in the England team has been enormous as Huddersfield shows. The good news is fans can still get great value for money tickets to see them at their games in Cardiff and Hull.
“Fans can also get to many other fantastic games across the country. I’d say to both Rugby League fans and lovers of great sport: The best players in the world are coming to play in your back yard. Be there and be part of it.”
