SA Rugby launches ‘season tickets’ for Bok games


Cape Town – A Springbok ‘season ticket’ has been launched by SA Rugby in the hope to of getting the national side the biggest possible send-off ahead of this year’s World Cup in Japan.

Fans will
be able to attend the Rugby Championship match against the
Wallabies at Ellis Park (20 July) and the final match on home soil
against Argentina at Loftus Versfeld (17
August) in one single purchase of R900, with both
stadiums offering lower main pavilion tickets as part of this special offering.

The package will go on sale on Monday, 1 April.

The
collaboration between the hosting unions – the Golden Lions and Blue Bulls –
has been designed in partnership with SA Rugby and team sponsors to give the
team a special farewell. The ‘season ticket’ comes with the incentive of a R550 discount on the normal price.

“We only
have two home Tests in 2019 and we want to sell out both of them in order to
give the team the best possible launchpad to take on the world in Japan,” said
Jurie Roux, SA Rugby CEO.

“There are
limited opportunities to see the Boks in action on home soil this year and we
wanted to mark it with a special initiative to build support. This has never
been done before and we hope Springbok fans rally to the challenge and attend
both tests to get right behind Rassie, Siya and the team.”

Tickets for
the individual Tests will be available as usual, with prices starting at R100
per ticket at each venue (all prices listed below). The season tickets available on a first-come-first-served basis until the allocation is
exhausted.

“Two sold
out Tests would be an awesome way to head off overseas,” said Rassie Erasmus,
Director of Rugby at SA Rugby.

“It’s an
incredible experience as a Springbok to walk out in front of a packed South
African stadium and the team draw energy from that. They’ll be special
occasions for us, as the rest of the time this year we’ll be overseas.

“We’re
already anticipating the unique atmosphere of a packed out Emirates Airline
Park and a repeat of the unbelievable Loftus vibe from 2018. We really hope to
see you there.”

The full
range of price categories are as follows:

20 July: Springboks v
Australia (Emirates Airline Park): R100, R350, R650, R900 (special ticket
offering), R950

17 August: Springboks v
Argentina (Loftus Versfeld): R100, R450, R600, R650, R700, R800, R900 (special
ticket offering).
