It seems their price structure has cost them as despite the hype rugby league isn’t a major sport so surely lower tickets are an incentive especially away from the M62.

Could be empty stadia not a good look

Shame.

£10 max would have been right

Or free for kids etc
I'm not particularly bothered how a stadium looks on TV, when did that become a thing?

I understand the rugby authorities wanting to spread the game but rugby league is played not far from here and I defect little interest locally in the sport, actually the same goes for rugby union and cricket when it comes to actually attending live games in the area.

I’m not talking about how our stadiums look I agree I don’t care either I meant it’s not a good for rugby league in their blue riband event to have empty stadia.

No, they'll not be reaping the awards they expected. Happening all around the world, have you seen the cricket world cup stadia, they look lovely but there's nobody in them for most games?

When the FIFA World Cup came to Teesside it wasn't well backed either, I think we had under 14,000 for one of the games. That was expensive too at the time.

I was at France Bulgaria at euro 96 in Newcastle as you say half full.

World Cup 1966 - lowest crowd of the tournament. Just over 13,000 - Chile v North Korea - Ayresome Park.

Gobsmacked at these prices.

Since when has Teesside been a rugby league stronghold ??

They probably expected more from West Yorkshire across to Hull travelling up for it but they will of been put off by the stupid prices as well.

That is what people said in 1966 too.
Most of the tickets at Riverside are £25 - which is cheaper than I paid for Commonwealth Games tickets for table tennis and badminton in the summer.

We had the lowest crowds of 1966 - mind you people complained that we had the worst games and teams - look at how that how turned out. North Korea beating Italy was the biggest story of the World Cup outside of England's win.

I heard sales have already surpassed some of the other recent matches at other venues.
Plenty of £25 tickets left - it would be great if it sold out at either end of the stadium behind the two goals.

The prices were the problem in 1966. The touts were trying to offload their tickets for half price when we arrived at the North Stand for the first game, they appeared to have plenty of them.


Some footage from it.
