The remaining Rugby League World Cup tickets have gone on sale to mark the 200-day countdown to the tournament.
England will take on Samoa at Newcastle’s St James’ Park to get the ball rolling on 23 October and with a hustle and bustle descending on the competition, it will be a welcome return to normalcy.
As it stands now, supporters are allowed to pack stadiums for matches, but full refunds are available should the coronavirus situation get worse.
St James’ Park will host a number of matches, including England vs Samoa
Some tickets cost as little as £ 2.21 – with that price enough to access France’s Group A clash with Greece at Keepmoat Stadium – and 80 percent of the tickets are less than £ 50.
Terri Lynam, Customer Director of RLWC2021, said: ‘Across the board in our ticket journey, demand has exceeded our expectations and we thank the Rugby League family and the sheer number of people who have bought tickets in such uncertain times in recent months.
There are only two low availability categories left for the historic double-header final at Old Trafford, Manchester, where many other matches are selling fast as well.
“We urge fans to buy now to avoid disappointment and secure their ticket to the biggest and best Rugby League World Cup ever.”
At this stage, fans have been told which matches they have received tickets for, with full assignment details such as seating and grandstand communicated closer to the tournament.

This means that tickets currently advertised on unofficial third party ticketing sites with full allocation details listed are misleading and may be canceled.
“We strongly urge all fans to buy their tickets only through the official ticket website.”
Premium seats and hospitality packages will continue to be available for purchase for all games at the tournament, which takes place every four years.
The men’s, women’s and wheelchair competitions are being organized together for the first time at 21 locations across England.
