It's a match that's going to be played on the big stage, It could create hundreds if not thousands of new fans who in turn would buy shirts and other merchandise as well as some attending matches and on the plus side if the NRL crack America they might stop cherry picking British youngsters, I imagine there will be a wealth of talent waiting to be found over there

flip the question - what did they lose?

What did they lose WF 1985? Probably a bit of goodwill with the season ticket holders, they lost money on the Australia trip by subsidising Hull to travel and if IIRC they rented some offices in London to coincide with the game at Millwall to help improve their image down there, so the cost of them I suppose

Maybe that helped get a certain Mike Danson involved?
Maybe being a club that always tries new things is a selling point to players, coaches, administrators, sponsors etc who wouldn't come or get involved otherwise?

Seen a few people saying 'booked' what exactly have people booked, I can't see anywhere for sale tickets for the game and can only see the 'packages' that the Aussie site is offering, what are people actually booking?

Flights and accommodation, you can get tickets at a later date.

It's only one game and I'm happy to miss one if it's to do something a little bit different. I'll still be able to watch it on TV and anyone who wants to go can have what's probably a once in a lifetime experience (given how expensive Vegas is).

Not sure how effective it will be for Wigan and Warrington or indeed for the NRL but this is the future of modern sport.

+1
Im sure not all fans will see it as such a negative. No need for the dramatics, it's only one game.

I will be there anyway, in cherry and white, one hand full of casino chips the other holding the hand of a high class lady of the night :P
I hope your winnings allow you the highest class of lady. Mrs Thomas perhaps?

Sad to say I remember the last Wigan v Wire in Mikwaukee in 1989. Nothing came out of that either but as the eariier poster asked I am sure season tickets will only go up for 12 home games not the 13 we pay for now.
Fairs fair though my grandsons tickets for the match against Stains on Friday are £5 less than Good Friday 2023.
