Fans attending the Men’s and Women’s Finals of the upcoming Rugby League World Cup at Old Trafford on Saturday 19 November will now have the option to stand as they watch the double-header finale following the implementation of a safe standing area at the home of Manchester United.
Tickets in the standing area will be priced in the Category D bracket and buyers will be allocated a seat number to ensure the numbers within the section are controlled. Tickets are available in this area to anyone aged 16 or over.
Rugby League World Cup Chief Executive, Jon Dutton, said:
“We are already anticipating a special atmosphere at all of our tournament finals and the introduction of safe standing for the Men’s and Women’s final at Old Trafford will undoubtedly add an extra element to the day.
“We know that many Rugby League fans across the country enjoy the matchday experience in the terraces alongside their friends and this will be a feature across many of our traditional Rugby League venues throughout the tournament. To be able to introduce this option for two World Cup finals is ground-breaking, particularly in a stadium such as Old Trafford. There are a limited number of these tickets available, and we expect them to sell quickly.
“Rugby League World Cup 2021 prides itself on being a trailblazing tournament and we know there is a huge desire across fans of sport in this country to bring back safe standing at major sporting events. To be a key part of that process is something we are very excited about.”
Tickets for the tournament are selling fast and the finals day double header which includes the men’s and women’s final is one of the most in demand for tickets. Anyone interested in buying tickets should visit: www.RLWC2021.com/tickets
