AS news broke of Warrington Wolves’ upcoming trip to play in Las Vegas, supporters clamoured to book their trips.

Indeed, the spike in bookings for the dates around the game reached a staggering high in the aftermath of the historic announcement.

The Wire will face neighbours Wigan Warriors at Allegiant Stadium on March 1 next year in what will be the first Super League fixture to be played on the American continent.

It will be the first of four games played in Vegas that day, with England and Australia facing off in a women’s international Test match while there will be two NRL fixtures – New Zealand Warriors vs Canberra Raiders and Penrith Panthers vs Cronulla Sharks.

According to package holiday company On The Beach, bookings for trips to Vegas for the games surged by almost 300 per cent once they had been confirmed.

“After the news was announced we saw a sudden surge in website traffic and hundreds of requests for holidays to Vegas,” the company’s chief customer officer Zoe Harris said.

 “By the end of the day, we’d seen a 275% increase in bookings and who can blame those that have booked?

“Watching Rugby League in Allegiant Stadium will be an incredible spectacle, plus instead of leaving the stadium and being in Warrington or Wigan, you’ll be on the Vegas strip!”

Official club travel packages are expected to be confirmed upon the release of match tickets to members on Tuesday, July 23.
