Wigan Warriors today announce ticket details for the 2017 Ladbrokes Challenge Cup Final.
The Final takes place on Saturday 26th August at Wembley Stadium, kick off 3.00pm and tickets are priced between £20-£85 with concessions available in the category 4, 5 and 6 price bands.
Three significant ticket sales changes have been made from previous Wembley Finals which Wigan fans are urged to note:
Firstly, ticket sales will commence online on Sunday evening, although an appropriate number of all ticket prices and block allocations will be reserved for personal callers on Monday morning.
Secondly, tickets are predominantly located in the Tier One and Club Wembley levels, rather than the high upper tiers.
- Finally, Wigan will be given the Easterly end of Wembley, rather than the West Stand which they’ve frequented in previous visits.
Explaining the new sale details Ticket Office Manager, Steve Reeves, said:
“With the game taking place on Sunday we appreciate that it would be difficult for a large portion of fans to take time off on Monday morning to queue for tickets, and whilst tickets are available from the RFL straight after the game we know that many fans want to buy from us to be assured of sitting with fellow Wigan fans.
“However, we also recognise that some people prefer to queue and / or can’t purchase online so we will be holding a good number of each ticket category and each block back for sale on Monday for personal callers on a first come first served basis.”
Tickets sales will commence as follows:
|Sunday 30th July||7pm onwards||Season Ticket Holders (Internet sales only. No personal callers or telephone calls will be accepted)|
|Monday 31st July||9am - 5pm||Shareholders, Season Ticket Holders & Lottery Agents (personal callers & internet sales only, no telephone calls will be accepted)|
|Tuesday 1st August||9am - 5pm||Shareholders, Season Ticket Holders, Lottery Agents & other Members (personal callers, internet sales & telephone calls accepted)|
|Wednesday 2nd August onwards||9am - 5pm||General Sale (personal callers, internet sales & telephone calls accepted)|
Please note: The DW Stadium Ticket Office is closed on Saturdays and Sundays.
Tickets will be sold on a first come, first served basis while stocks last.
2017 Season Ticket Holders are entitled to purchase up to FOUR Ladbrokes Challenge Cup Final Tickets per season ticket, whilst Shareholders and Lottery Agents are entitled to purchase FOUR Ladbrokes Challenge Cup Final tickets per person.
Tickets cannot be reserved without full payment.
Please note that calls to Ticket Hotline on 0871 66-33-552 cost 10p per minute from BT landlines, call costs from other networks may vary.
