Seats in the top tier at Wembley have all been taken off sale. While on here were probably aware of the groupon offer, many non RL fans won’t be. If Londoner Joe Bloggs decicides he might give the cup final a go, the cheapest available from the RFL is £50. I’m not normally one for bashing the RFL but that is ridiculous when there are going to be 20000 - 30000 empty seats on Saturday.

Reflecting the complete failure of a sports governing body to carry out part of their responsibility, that is to market and promote events.
RU laughs at RL. Rightly so.

Once they knew it was going to be a Catalans v Warrington final and the drop in people attending, it should have kick started a good marketing promotion to give a couple of thousand of tickets to the London Bronsos, London Skolars, London Schools/Clubs who play league etc at a tenner a ticket.
It should have been looked at after the quarter final result months ago.

RL fans have an obsession with attendances. I could give a monkeys, CC finals whoever is playing these days are never full houses and always look bad on tv, live with it. I just hope its a great game of rugby and we could be seeing a little bit of history should Catalans do the business.






What you looking at?....Butt Head!!

Those days of a full Wembley for the CC Final were often back when there was no Grand Final, Magic Weekend, Summer Bash etc, hence it was a gathering place for the RL community.

You can only milk the same (limited quantity of) supporters for so much money - it's the number of neutrals who've dropped off considerably.

I like this point of view. We're normally too busy bashing rugby league that we forget to enjoy it!

Removing from sale the cheapest 2 categories of tickets and only leaving the most expensive tickets isn’t going to encourage neutrals to go

Rather embarrassing for Warrington that they'll be involved in a Wembley Challenge Cup final which will certainly have it's lowest ever attendance.
