RLWC2021 tickets back on sale with more best-priced tickets available
Demand for tickets is on the rise as the countdown to the biggest, best and most inclusive Rugby League World Cup in history continues.
The tournament has experienced a big increase in ticket sales since the launch of a national advertising campaign on 26 August which marked 50 days to go until the tournament kicks off at St Jamesâ€™ Park on 15 October. England men will take on Samoa in the opening game in what is anticipated to be a blockbuster fixture to kick off proceedings. Over 75% of all category A and over 80% of all category B tickets for the opener are now sold.
As highlighted last week, RLWC2021 has also undertaken a recategorization process at a number of fixtures to ensure as many tickets are available in high demand categories, making it more affordable for people to attend in recognition of the difficult financial climate that many households currently find themselves in.
Tickets are selling at unprecedented levels for what is expected to become a record-breaking World Cup.
Prices start at Â£10 for adults and Â£2.21 for concessions, ensuring this is an accessible and affordable tournament for all while our no discount policy also ensures that fans sat next to each other in the same area will have paid the same amount for their ticket no matter when they bought. Those fans that bought during the ballot in 2020 secured the best prices and best availability on seats.
Tickets across all three tournaments are selling well with England womenâ€™s opening fixture against Brazil at Headingley having already broken the record for tickets sold for a stand-alone womenâ€™s rugby league match in the Northern hemisphere.
Tickets for England menâ€™s group fixture at the University of Bolton stadium has now seen all category D & E tickets sold out, while the menâ€™s and womenâ€™s final at Old Trafford on 19 November has seen over 85% of category D tickets snapped up, while category E is now completely sold out.
For the menâ€™s semi-final at the Emirates Stadium, where Englandâ€™s men will play were they to reach that stage of the tournament, seats are also selling fast in what will be the first time a sporting event has been held at the venue outside of Arsenal FC.
Fans are urged to secure their tickets as soon as possible via www.rlwc2021.com/tickets to avoid missing out on the big matches.
