Tickets for the Griffin Park international between England 'A' and world champions, Australia are now on sale. London Broncos, who will host the match at their West London Brentford base, will retain similar match day pricing as home Tetley's Super League fixtures in an attempt to make this blue chip game affordable for families in the local community.
What this means is that an adult can see the world champions in London, before the Kangaroos play their three match Test Series against Great Britain, for as little as ?10! And children's tickets start at just ?3. These low prices are based only on tickets purchased in advance.
Last Autumn Griffin Park proved a highly successful venue for the international staged between England 'A' and New Zealand, and despite poor weather conditions on the night, it was a very healthy crowd at Brentford. The Broncos are expecting to double the crowd for the visit of the world champions. Broncos CEO Nic Cartwright explains the ticketing policy: "We were overwhelmed by the take up last year, particularly from our efforts in schools in the local community.
That is the key thrust of our marketing for London Broncos games and the privilege of seeing the worlds' very best team on our own pitch here in London should be made available to as many people as we can reach." This is an international game and it's a great opportunity for us to use this fixture to introduce rugby league to a vast audience in the South for the very first time. Our pricing is very affordable and the product I am sure will be top shelf."
We are looking forward to making this game a major success, and hopefully Paul (Sykes) and Rob (Purdham) will get the chance to use their home ground knowledge to help England 'A'." London Broncos Season Ticket Holders are invited to retain their Super League seat at Griffin Park and this offer will expire at the Broncos final home game on Sunday 21st September.
Broncos Gold Members (just ?30) can also take advantage of the $4 discount on all premium adult tickets purchased in advance. London Broncos next home game in Tetley's Super League is against Warrington Wolves on Sunday 17th August - kick off is 3pm.
