Today, Thursday July 18 marks 100 days to go to the kick-off of Rugby League World Cup 2013 and organisers are predicting a hectic final phase, with even stronger ticket sales as interest continues to build in both hemispheres.
Set against the backdrop of a fascinating summer with the England cricket team squaring up to Australia in The Ashes and the British & Irish Lions having such a successful tour down under, the opening day of the tournament will provide another chance for the two old rivals to go toe to toe.
In 100 days, on October 26, hosts England play Australia, in the opening game. A cauldron-like atmosphere is guaranteed under the closed roof of the Millennium Stadium, one of the best places to watch live sport in the world.
The game will follow the official Opening Ceremony which is billed as ‘the greatest show that Rugby League has ever seen’. Following that, co-hosts Wales will take on a much-fancied Italian side.
Around 40% of the tournament’s ticket target has already been achieved, which organisers are taking as a huge boost as they look forward to welcoming all 14 teams in October.
Australia take on Fiji at Langtree Park one week into the tournament on Saturday 2 November at 8pm.
