World Cup tickets sales boost

Date published: Friday, November 30, 2012

With one year exactly to go to the Rugby League World Cup Final 2013, tournament organisers have announced that less than 10,000 of the ‘Early Bird’ tickets remain on sale.

Fans buying a ticket for The Rugby League World Cup Final receive a £5 discount on every ticket and a RLWC2013 beanie which will be delivered in time for Christmas.

The Rugby League World Cup Final takes place at Old Trafford, the home of Manchester United on November 30 2013.

Senior United players and Rugby League fans Rio Ferdinand, Ryan Giggs and Wayne Rooney took time out from training this week to show their support by being photographed with the Rugby League World Cup trophy.

RLWC2013 General Manager, Sally Bolton said: “Old Trafford is a fantastic venue and one of the reasons that the final is selling so well, even with one year to go.

“So well in fact, that if sales continue as they have been, the remaining 10,000 ‘Early Bird’ tickets will go before the December 17 deadline, so fans wanting be at the final really should buy now.”

RLWC2013 Ticketing Manager, Kevan Williams added: “We have been really busy selling tickets every day since they went on sale. We’ve sold tickets across the country and worldwide. Only 31% of sales have been in Super League towns and cities and we’ve had fans as far away as Australia, Russia, the USA and even Japan buying tickets.”
