Just came across this. Catalans Dragons are playing Wigan at the home of Barcelona FC in Spain. 30k tickets already sold with the game still weeks away and Barcelona FC yet to start their marketing campaign of the game.

This has a lot to do with the Catalan people who live in southern France and northern Spain. Great initiative.

Excellent news
Rl is growing overseas.not rapidly but it's growing
Looks like a great crowd will attend .
I'm wondering what the biggest AFl crowd overseas is with two non Australian teams playing. Neither in their home country . I'd say the crowd would be 13 plus maybe a few dogs walking through the park .


Metho madness.
Lol $10 NRL tickets.$10 NRL tickets .How pathetic is that ?
Crickets chirping after I post $5 AFlol tickets .
Self ownage ..no one does it better .

Super League and Betfred have today announced the biggest commercial deal in the history of the competition by extending their partnership for a further two seasons.
The multi-million-pound investment by Betfred, owned by Rugby League fan and Salfordian Fred Done, will see the current three-year partnership extended until the end of the 2021 season.

News of the record-breaking deal comes at a time when Betfred Super League is enjoying huge popularity. Last weekend saw the record attendance for a Super League fixture broken when 31,555 people saw the Catalans Dragons overcome Wigan Warriors in a historic first ever Rugby League game at the iconic Nou Camp in Barcelona. This followed a record-breaking aggregate round attendance over the Easter Weekend, when 78,917 fans attended Super League Round 11 fixtures.

It's quite an achievement to get two club teams from two different countries playing a game in another country which has had little interest in RL .
Other small international sports would love to be able to do that .
