Though torrid weather meant Saturday’s Challenge Cup Final failed to live up to many people’s expectations, anticipation is continuing to build ahead of the sport’s return to Wembley at Rugby League World Cup 2013.
Four teams will collide at The Big Hit double header of RLWC2013 semi-finals, with a place in the showpiece Rugby League World Cup Final at Old Trafford on November 30 at stake.
And after close to 80,000 fans created a fantastic atmosphere in the famous stadium on Saturday, another bumper crowd is expected for Wembley’s upcoming international showpiece.
“Tickets for the marquee games at the tournament are selling really well and we know that the appetite for great sport and unique events especially in London is huge,” said RLWC2013 General Manager Sally Bolton.
“We created The Big Hit to underline what a fantastic, value for money event the semi-final double header is for the London sports fan.”
The Big Hit concept was unveiled by London Mayor Boris Johnson earlier this year, and he has already thrown his own support behind RLWC2013.
“Rugby League World Cup 2013 will offer Londoners and visitors to the capital the chance to see some of the world’s best players battle it out in one of our finest sporting venues,” he said.
“As we build a lasting sporting legacy from the 2012 Olympic Games, this fantastic event will offer a great family day out for rugby fans young and old.”
The Big Hit arrives at Wembley Stadium on November 23.
Tickets for The Big Hit are on sale now, with adult admission starting from just £20 (£10 concessions).
