Tickets costing R250 for the Springboks’ final match of the Castle Rugby Championship, against New Zealand at Soccer City on October 6, are now on general sale.
Almost 7,000 tickets at R250 were released exclusively through Soweto outlets – but have now been put on general sale through Computicket outlets. This is in addition to tickets available in premium seats at R600 and a number remaining at R450.
Supporters can also save 10% on all categories of tickets if they bank with Springbok team sponsor, Absa. All Absa debit, cheque and credit card holders will be eligible to the discount when purchasing tickets.
The match will be the Springboks’ second appearance at Soccer City. In 2010 a crowd of 94,713 – a record for an audited attendance at a rugby match in South Africa – saw South Africa play New Zealand in former captain, John Smit’s, 100th Test.
Tickets are available through Computicket by telephone (0861-915-8000) and online at www.computicket.com.
Tickets are not on sale through SARU’s offices or directly from Soccer City.
