The Rugby League World Cup Final 2013 will be staged at Manchester United's iconic stadium on Saturday November 30 and strong ticket sales continue to give the tournament a boost.
RLWC2013 General Manager Sally Bolton said: "The sport of Rugby League has a long standing relationship with Manchester United. Old Trafford is a fantastic, proven arena for our extraordinary game and from day one we had planned for the final to be there.
"We have a great relationship with the club and are working closely with them to deliver this world class event, the pinnacle of our sport.
"Over 40,000 tickets have now gone for the final and three price categories of tickets have completely sold out. The Rugby League World Cup Final is the must-see sports event of 2013 in the UK and fans are responding to that."
