LONDON, 07 APRIL 2021 (INSIDE THE GAMES) – The remaining tickets available for this year’s Rugby League World Cup in England have gone on general sale to mark 200 days to go until the opening match on October 23.
Organisers said availability is limited but seats for matches including the final at Old Trafford in Manchester on November 27 will be up for grabs in the general sale phase.
Tickets have been put up for sale on a first-come, first-served basis until June 1.
Prices start at £2.21 (£3.06/€2.59) and 80 per cent of tickets are priced below £50 (US$69/€59).
“Across our ticketing journey demand has exceeded our expectations and we thank the rugby league family and the enormous number of people who have purchased tickets during such uncertain times over the past few months,” said Rugby League World Cup 2021 customer director Terri Lynam.
“Only two categories with low availability remain for the historic double-header final at Old Trafford, Manchester with many other fixtures selling fast too.
“We urge fans to buy now to avoid disappointment and secure their ticket to the biggest and best ever Rugby League World Cup.
“At this stage fans have been told what matches they have got tickets for with full allocation details, such as seat and stand, being communicated closer to the tournament.
“This means that any tickets currently being advertised on unofficial third-party ticketing sites with full allocation details listed are misleading and may well be cancelled.
“We strongly urge all fans to buy their tickets only from the official ticketing website.”
Tournament organisers have also reminded fans of the ticket refund guarantee for all ticket purchasers should there be restrictions on crowds at the event due to COVID-19, and to reassure fans in the unfortunate circumstance the tournament has to be cancelled.
