    Would be good to see Spain in a warm up game before hand.
    Although if they are trying to latch on to Catalan nationalism that might not be likely to happen.

    Is the 10k Wigan sales included in the 20k sold so far or is the 20k just the number sold by the dragons??

    Either way it’s still impressive and not only smashes the record super league attendance but generates much needed publicity for the game in France, U.K. and also Europe.

    Tomkins out and Tierney somehow gets his place back over Romano.

    I’ll be amazed if Wigan take 10 thousand.

    As usual reports vary from 22,000 tickets sold to 30,000 tickets sold.

    I’ll settle for something in between and the super league record of just over 25,000 being smashed.

    I’m not saying it’s 10,000 but I’m surprised by how many of my friend have checked in to Barcelona on Facebook. Looks like there’s a few lads weekends and stag do’s gone over for it.

    I'm flying out there tomorrow for the weekend.

    10k wouldn't be a surprise honestly, had plenty of time to plan it and flights are cheap enough if you look around. Knowing that we're not going to be in the Challenge Cup final will help too in a way, so people don't feel obliged to save up for that.

    What a week for expansion.

    Norway playing Greece in London,
    Catalans and Wigan taking a game to one of the world's great cities in Barcelona,
    and the NRL bringing a game to Mudgee.

    Is this match being broadcast in Australia?

    Got other Super League and Summer Bash games appearing on Kayo but not this one.

    Apparently dragons owner/chairman?? Bernard guasch told local radio that over 25,000 tickets had been sold.

    Let’s hope the super league record attendance is broken. Especially by a French expansion team in Barcelona of all places!?

    Really hope they can get over 30,000.

    Will just need the national team to accomplish something next.

    30,000 would be phenomenal but would no doubt be seen as a failure by some because of the other 60,000+ empty seats!!

    As for the French National side the only way they’ll improve is if more and more French players are signed up by English super league clubs I’m afraid.

    It’s listed as being on Kayo, 00.15 Sunday morning. I assume it’s on fox as well.

    I see it now. Toronto vs Toulouse then Catalans vs Wigan (in Barcelona), never ever thought these fixtures could ever happen. Just seeing the Toronto vs Toulouse graphic on Kayo just shows you where this great game can go and gives myself a big :D. If only southern hemisphere media could at least appear aware of these great things taking place :(

    Already happening. NRL clubs might start viewing them as cheap as well soon?
