There will be 13 bespoke bundles available, including options for many of the world-class venues at the tournament next year which will be the biggest and best in history, as well as an opening weekend bundle and one for the England men’s group stages, all on offer at a promotional rate.
Ticket bundles will be available during the Rugby League family priority access sale period from September 21 to October 1, 2020 and will offer the best possible chance for fans to secure the tickets they want at the very best prices available.
For those looking to be a part of the atmosphere and action, RLWC2021’s ‘Opening Weekend Bundle’ allows fans to watch the England men’s team open the tournament against Samoa at St James’ Park on Saturday, 23 October 2021, before heading to Kingston Park the following day to watch Scotland vs Italy. The ‘Opening Weekend Bundle’ will be available from £60 for adults and £30 for concessions.
England’s men’s side will be looking to go one step further than they did in 2017 when they were narrowly beaten in the final by rivals Australia, and supporters can follow the team’s route through the group stage by purchasing a ‘England Men’s Group Stage Bundle’.
For as little as £40 for adults and £25 for concessions, fans will be able to see all three games as they take on France at the University of Bolton Stadium, Greece at Bramall Lane, Sheffield, and of course that mouth-watering opening tie against Samoa at St James’ Park, Newcastle.
The wheelchair tournament, a part of this unique global sporting event for the first time, will bring high intensity action and huge excitement, with London’s iconic Copper Box Arena staging six group matches. RLWC2021’s ‘Copper Box Bundle’ will give access to all six matches in the ‘Box that Rocks’ for just £50 for adults and £5 for concessions.
Fans will also have the opportunity to see some incredible women’s Rugby League action in 2021 in all eight games at York’s LNER Community Stadium, including the two semi-finals, with a venue bundle costing £40 for adults and £7.50 for concessions.
There is also a range of other mouth-watering bundles on offer across the different host venues in Bolton, Doncaster, Hull, Leeds, Newcastle, Sheffield, Warrington, Wigan and Leigh and York.
Jon Dutton, RLWC2021 Chief Executive, said today:
“We know lots of passionate Rugby League fans will want to take in as much live action as possible and we wanted to offer them the chance to do so at amazing value.
“This will be the most inclusive and accessible Rugby League World Cup ever and we have ticket bundles that offer something for everyone, across the men’s, women’s and wheelchair tournaments - all at amazing prices.”
RLWC2021 will also make a contribution across all sales phases to benefit the brilliant work of Official Tournament Charity Partner UNICEF (UK). As part of the £4.00* ticket processing fee RLWC2021 will donate 50p to UNICEF who will use the power of the tournament to raise awareness and funds for vital work protecting children in the UK and internationally.
Jon Dutton added:
"Working with UNICEF will give the sport a powerful platform to improve the economic and social well-being of children and young people with half of the money raised through the tournament being reinvested in UK programmes. The donation through ticket sales is just one of our commitments to raise funds for UNICEF on the road to, and during the RLWC2021.”
