England v Ireland game sells out

England‘s match against Ireland at the John Smith’s Stadium in Huddersfield is the first World Cup game to sell out.

Since the Super League and NRL Grand Finals, interest in RLWC2013 has grown massively with ticket sales rising day by day as the tournament rolls out the final stages of its marketing strategy. 

Tournament Director Nigel Wood said: “The immediate pre-tournament period was always seen as crucial to the success of RLWC2013 and I am delighted that our marketing team have succeeded in getting the tournament talked about everywhere and in every medium.

“Over 35,000 people are visiting the RLWC2013 website every day, and we have had to disappoint some people as, quite frankly, certain category tickets are simply sold out.”

More than 60,000 tickets have also been sold for the final at Old Trafford, and other venues are reporting strong sales.

The tournament starts on Saturday week at the Millennium Stadium in Cardiff.
