In a sign of how organised the 2013 Rugby League World Cup will be, dates have been announced more than 15 months before the event is scheduled to begin.

Tickets go on sale to the general public in late October with season ticket holders given the option to by tickets now.

Early indications are that the 2013 Rugby League World Cup will surpass the attendance record of 293,965 set during the 2008 Rugby League World Cup held in Australia.

 

With the jump from 10 to 14 teams organisers are hoping new comers like Italy and the United States will not only bring in the crowds but also help take rugby league to it's biggest global audience to date.
