The Rugby League World Cup is one of the most important tournaments within professional Rugby League. National teams from around the globe will head to Australia, where the hosts will be defending their title. Featuring 14 teams the group stage will determine who goes on to compete in the knock out rounds and ultimately, the much anticipated final. Rugby League teams field 13 players, with the contact sport lasting 40 minutes each half. First held in France in 1954, the 2017 hosts of Australia have won a total of 10 tournaments. The final will be played at the Brisbane Stadium, home of the Queensland Reds.
International flights reach Brisbane Airport, it is then a 20-minute drive to into Brisbane, with the Stadium within easy access. There are shuttle bus services that will run to the stadium from the city centre and direct trains are also available. Prices for the Rugby League World Cup Final are split into 3 categories and start from $40. The $40 category C tickets are the cheapest. Category B are $81 for children and $112 for adults. Category A are adults only and cost $152. All tickets are subject to a $4.95 booking fee. The final is set to kick off at 7.05pm.
As with any world cup final, tickets will go quickly so book in advance. Check the layout of the ground to choose your seats. Follow the tournament closely to see who will reach the final. If you’re a keen rugby fan, then book another game earlier in the tournament during your visit. Families are welcome, so if you are travelling with under 16’s book the category B and C tickets. There are also hospitality packages available at the ground. The shuttle buses will help you reach the stadium, but on the day still allow yourself plenty of time for travelling.
