Rugby League World Cup 2013 is offering fans from overseas the opportunity to be a part of a spectacular day of match action in the South of France.
A charter flight for France’s clash with New Zealand at Parc des Sports in Avignon on November 1 departs Manchester Airport at 11.00am before returning in the early hours of November 2.
Tickets for the match are already selling extremely well, and hundreds more have already been sold to supporters from outside of France.
French Rugby League Federation Marketing Manager Mohamed-Ali Chaabi said: “The match between France and New Zealand at Parc des Sports in Avignon on November 1 is shaping up to be a fantastic event, and is one of the most eagerly-anticipated matches of Rugby League World Cup 2013.
“The interest in the game has been very strong this side of the Channel and we’re delighted to be able to offer this opportunity to overseas fans, so that they may share in this experience with us, especially as RLWC2013 truly is a tournament for the entire Rugby League family to enjoy.
“It promises to be a fantastic weekend of world class international Rugby League in the South of France, and we hope you can join us.”
The flight lands in Avignon at 2.00pm, ahead of kick-off at 8.00pm, and departs back to the UK from Avignon at 11.59pm, landing in Manchester at 1.00am.
