RLWC2013 tickets to go on sale one year out
Demand for information is already high with enquiries about tickets a constant feature of RLWC2013’s Facebook and Twitter pages.
Loyal Rugby League fans will be the first to be offered the chance to buy tickets for what is the next global sporting event in the UK after the London 2012 Olympics. Fans will be sent their annual renewal packs from Super League and Championship clubs over the next few weeks as usual, but this year they will also include unique RLWC2013 offers.
55% of all the tickets will be priced at £20 or less and there are deals for groups of friends and families wanting to come and sit together as a group.
Sally Bolton RLWC2013 General Manager said: “We would genuinely urge people to buy their tickets early. We anticipate demand for the show piece events: the Opening Ceremony, Semi-Finals and the Rugby League World Cup Final will be really high if the interest shown in these events so far is an indicator. Add to that the competitive pricing with the entry price at just £20. The majority of our tickets are less than £20 with group games and the Quarter Finals priced from £10 or from £5 for concessions, we have been focused on making this tournament affordable.
“We’re sure that London 2012 will deliver on its promise to create a new generation of sports fans and we will be next up to offer them a truly exciting sport, full of international stars. This is the global sporting event of 2013, so we expected fans to be desperate for ticket information. We think it is important that the first opportunity to guarantee a place goes to the Rugby League community but any fan of great sport should register at our website for the pre-sales period”.
The special pre-sales period for tickets (which includes a free RLWC2013 beanie hat!) starts on Monday October 8 2012, but fans can sign up HERE ON THE RLWC2013 HOMEPAGE.
