Here’s everything ticket-related that you need to know about the Springboks’ first Test against the All Blacks at Ellis Park in August.

The Springboks will host the All Blacks in two Rugby Championship clashes this year, with the first taking place at Ellis Park in Johannesburg on 31 August, followed by another showdown between them at Cape Town Stadium in the Mother City a week later on 7 September.

The ticket prices for the first of those two encounters have been made public on the Ticketpros website, and they between R350 and R2750 per person/seat.

FNB clients and DSTV premium subscribers have “early bird” pre-sale windows before general ticket sales for this specific Test open on the 17th of April.

Apart from normal tickets, hospitality deals are also available, as well as various tour packages through SA Rugby Travel.

Ticket prices for the second Rugby Championship Test against the All Blacks in Cape Town have not been confirmed yet, but supporters wishing to see the Springboks in action this year are urged to keep their eyes on SA Rugby’s social media pages as well as those of the hosting unions.

Fans are also yet again warned to only buy from official outlets and not websites such as Viagogo.

South Africa will also host Ireland in a two-Test series in July followed by an international match against Portugal in Bloemfontein. The games against the Irish will take place at Kings Park in Durban and Loftus Versfeld in Pretoria, respectively.
