North Queenslanders will be able to secure tickets for all Rugby League World Cup 2017 (RLWC2017) games at Townsville and Cairns venues from Thursday 13 October, with an adult venue pack priced from just $34.

RLWC2017 today announced its ticket pricing for next year’s tournament, to be co-hosted by Australia and New Zealand from 27 October to 2 December, with three pool games also being played in Papua New Guinea.

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.

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," Mr Hill said.

“A family of four can attend a Rugby League World Cup pool match from just $45, a semi-final from $120 or even the final in Brisbane, where they will witness both the men’s and women’s winners crowned on the same day, from only $180.

“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.

"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.”

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, to be contested by Wales, Ireland, Russia, Serbia, Italy and Spain.
