However, although the current state of affairs is bad news for the England rugby team, it could mean that some die-hard fans may well get the chance to see the last match that England play as reigning world champions.
London, UK (PRWEB) September 21, 2007
England fans have already given up on the England rugby team reaching the quarter finals of the 2007 Rugby World Cup, according to GET ME IN! (http://www.getmein.com/) the UK's leading online ticket marketplace.
Rugby supporters have started to off-load Rugby World Cup tickets for the group match between England and Tonga on the GET ME IN! website at prices well below their advertised face value.
After losing heavily to the South Africans, England fans appear resigned to an early exit for the World Cup winners, as rugby tickets with a face value of £77 for the 28th September clash are being offered for as little as £34 each.
With England performing so poorly in their first two outings against the USA and the Springboks, the suspension of captain Phil Vickery and a growing list of injuries, fans are showing their lack of faith in the chances of the national team to win their next two matches.
Paul Coggins, director of business development at GET ME IN!, comments: "Since England lost so heavily to the Springboks, we have seen a huge surge in the number of Tonga World Cup tickets being traded on GET ME IN! and at prices well below market value. It seems that enough is enough for England fans.
"However, although the current state of affairs is bad news for the England rugby team, it could mean that some die-hard fans may well get the chance to see the last match that England play as reigning world champions."
