Single game tickets for the Rugby League World Cup 2017 (RLWC2017), to be contested across Australia, New Zealand and Papua New Guinea from 27 October until 2 December 2017, are now on sale to the general public.
Fans will be able to watch the greatest rugby league players from across the globe for as little as $10, with exactly one year to go until the game's pinnacle international event kicks off.
Tickets start at $10 for kids and concession card holders and $20 for adults, while a family of four can see World Cup action from as little as $45 (booking and transactions fees will apply).
Pre-sales for the 15th edition of the tournament have been strong and fans are encouraged to get in early to secure the best seats at the best ticket prices.
RLWC2017 CEO Andrew Hill said the tournament would be a festival of rugby league with 450,000 fans expected to attend the tournament.
“With 28 games in 13 cities across three countries, next year’s Rugby League World Cup will give more fans the opportunity to attend an international sporting event and see the greatest rugby league players from around the globe in their own backyard.
“When setting the ticket prices, value for money was our number one priority. We wanted to ensure families had the opportunity to share in this international experience and be part of a major sporting event.
“We’ve experienced higher than anticipated pre-sales, which highlights both the excitement surrounding the Rugby League World Cup and that fans appreciate our affordable, family-friendly ticket prices."
With 11 teams already confirmed, the final three teams will come from the European Qualifying tournament currently being contested.
Two of the three teams will be confirmed this Saturday, 29 October (GMT), when Italy hosts Wales in Monza and Ireland hosts Russia in Bray, with the winners of these two games qualifying for RLWC2017.
The losers will play off in Leigh (England) on Friday 4 November (GMT), with the winner of this final qualifying series to secure the final spot in the 14-team RLWC2017.
