Rugby League World Cup 2017 (RLWC2017) has announced its fan-friendly ticket pricing for next year's tournament to be co-hosted by New Zealand and Australia from 27 October to 2 December.
Fans are encouraged to purchase early to secure the best seats at the lowest prices, starting from $10 for kids and concessions, $20 for adults and $45 for a family of four. The ticket pricing reflects the RLWC2017 organising committee's vision of having next year's tournament seen by more fans than ever before.
RLWC2017 CEO, Andrew Hill, said the tournament would be a festival of rugby league with some 450,000 fans expected to attend the 28 games across 13 host cities - a World Cup record.
"When setting ticket prices, value for money was our number one priority. We wanted to make next year's tournament accessible to all fans, particularly families, giving them the opportunity to attend a World Cup and see the greatest rugby league players from around the globe.
"A family of four can watch the Kiwis in a pool match from just $45, attend a quarter-final from $60 or the semi-final from only $120. Our venue packs are also extremely affordable, where fans can see all matches at selected venues at a discounted rate, starting from as little as $17 for kids and concessions or $34 for adults.
"This will be the first time since 2014 that the Kiwis will have played an International on home soil and as the current number one ranked nation, we know they will have plenty of support as they look to progress out of their exciting pool that also features Samoa, Scotland and Tonga.
"To get the best seats at the best value, fans are urged to buy tickets when they go on sale to the general public on Thursday 27 October 2016," concluded Hill.
The RLWC2017 will be contested from 27 October to 2 December 2017 and hosted by Australia and New Zealand with three pool games also being played in Papua New Guinea.
With 11 teams already confirmed, the final three teams will come from the European Qualifying Tournament to be played in October and early November this year. The teams who are still in the race are Wales, Ireland, Russia, Serbia, Italy and Spain.
