Tickets for the Rugby Championship Test between the Springboks and All Blacks at DHL Stadium will go on sale to the public on 19 June following a public registration process and will cost up to R3500 a pop.

The Springboks are set to square off against New Zealand in a much-anticipated showdown in Cape Town, and given the high expected demand for tickets, a public registration of interest will be held from 27 May to 9 June, and a ticket ballot process will be conducted to ensure a fair process as well as to reduce the number of secondary resales, ticket fraud, and illegally counterfeited tickets, with various physical- and digital safety controls to be put in place.

A ticket ballot is used by many sporting bodies across the world; and is the fairest way of giving people a chance to purchase tickets. This system will also reduce the number of frustrated customers stuck in the queue for what will be a high-demand event.

Registration of interest is an entry into the ticket ballot and does not automatically secure your tickets but a place in the draw; successful applicants randomly selected from the draw will be invited to purchase up to four (4) tickets per customer on a first-come, first-served basis.

All registrations are treated equally, so it does not matter when in the registration window you complete the process, but only one registration per customer will go into the draw.


  • Registration of interest via Ticketmaster will take place from 27 May to 9 June.
  • The Ticketmaster registration link will be published on,,, and our social media channels when registration opens on 27 May.
  • Successful applicants randomly drawn through the ticket ballot process will receive an email by 17 June with a unique, secured link and password to purchase tickets on 19 June through Ticketmaster.
