AUSTRALIA will take on Fiji at Langtree Park on November 2, 2013 in their World Cup Group A.
Fixtures for the tournament have been announced now all venues are confirmed.
RLWC2013 General Manager Sally Bolton said: “It is important to note that a small number of the dates may be subject to change. Our host broadcast partners will also be announced soon and when the TV schedule is finalised we will be able to set in stone the fixtures and kick-off times.
“This is more exciting news for RLWC2013 and shows again that we are in great shape in terms of planning. Announcing these fixture dates now will allow Super League and Championship fans to start making plans for the tournament as they receive our ‘early bird’ offers with their season ticket renewals over the next few weeks.
“We would encourage all Rugby League fans to buy early, especially for the showpiece games, as we have already had enquiries from St Helens fans, who were the first to receive their RLWC2013 ticket offers with their renewal information this week. Judging by our social media interaction we expect many more enquiries as the country enjoys a massive few weeks of sporting action.”
RLWC2013 tickets go on general sale on Friday October 26, one year out from the first match double-header at the Millennium Stadium.
