    From 9am (British) 6pm (Aus) yesterday, ticket sales were opened for people who signed up early, with the public ticket sales/ballot due to open in October.

    On twitter, CEO Jon Dutton confirmed that there would be full refunds for any COVID impacted travel restrictions.

    Initial response seemed strong with online queues and unfortunately the typical website failures for some users (hopefully this was sorted quickly! but probably an indication of good demand)

    Has anyone else bought tickets yet?

    I got tickets for England v Samoa opener, Tonga v PNG, NZ v Ireland, and France v Samoa.
    These are the games I most want to see, but have another dozen or so lined up for when travel arrangements become clearer.

    It wouldn't surprise me if this tournament doubles the attendance of the 2017 event, everything about its organisation has been 100x better.

    I know they’re refundable but I’m not going to buy tickets until I know I cab actually go.
    It’s a shame all this hit as they really did seem to be organising a great event.

    If we can go, I don't want to miss out on tickets to the opener. f**k it, if it doesnt work out, I'll deal with that later.

    Even pre covid I don’t think getting tickets for the opener was going to be an issue. If they could have got 30,000 in a non league city for that game I would have taken it as a win.

    I reckon it will sell out or go close.
    English fans are typically more enthusiastic about internationals than Aussies and the marketing and planning for the event has been excellent.

    I hope you’re right but 52,000 to play Samoa in a Football and Union town is a big ask in my opinion.

    Samoa is the best of the England pool games, it should be a good one.
    And Newcastle is just close enough to the heartlands that people from all over will travel for the event.
    I'm an optimist!

    The only hinderance will be the grounds capacity.

    I'm looking forward to Australia vs The Republic Of San Morino, should be a cracker!

    Can we please have him restricted, alongside his alter egos, to Fight Club. This forum is for news and discussion not his crap.
