Rugby League World Cup to offer ‘family friendly’ ticket prices for PNG

Rugby League World Cup to offer ‘family friendly’ ticket prices for PNG
August 16, 2017

The Rugby League World Cup (RLWC2017) Organising Committee has announced that fans will be able to attend World Cup games played in Papua New Guinea later this year at ticket prices as low 30 PGK (US$9.50).

During an event held on Tuesday at the Oil Search National Football Stadium, RLWC2017 Chief Executive Andrew Hill unveiled the ticketing details and kick-off times for the three RLWC2017 pool games to be contested in the PNG capital, Port Moresby.

Hill explained “when setting the prices for the three Rugby League World Cup 2017 games to be contested in Papua New Guinea, our priority was to make tickets affordable and accessible to as many fans as possible, particularly families.

“It was a conscious decision on the part of the Organising Committee to ensure there was a ticket price to suit everyone and provide an opportunity for fans and families to attend this year’s Rugby League World Cup.”

“This year’s tournament is the most anticipated sporting event Papua New Guinea has ever hosted and we know there is huge demand for tickets from fans wanting to be part of history. With a capped crowd capacity of 15,000 for each game, we expect tickets to sell quickly when they go on general sale.”

As hosting partner of the RLWC2017, PNG will stage the PNG Kumuls three pool games:
