CAPE TOWN – The most expensive ticket for the Springboks’ final Test against England at Newlands on June 23 will cost a whopping R950, and will go on sale on Monday, May 7 at 12pm.
Western Province Rugby announced on Friday that the ticket prices will start at R100 for scholars (under-18s) for the first Springbok series under the watch of new coach Rassie Erasmus.
Standing-room entry will cost R150, with the cheapest seat being R450.
WP Rugby said that the R950 ticket (category one, in the grandstand) is the same price as it was for the big All Black Test last year, but that category two (R875) and three (R750) have come down from R950 and R850 respectively in 2017, and is “significant as it represents a large proportion of the stadium capacity”.
Only tickets bought from Computicket and WP Rugby will be valid, with scholar tickets only available directly from WP Rugby, and season tickets are valid for the Test.
“Anyone who has watched a Test at a packed Newlands knows that the atmosphere is something unique to experience,” says WP Rugby chief executive Paul Zacks.
“We are looking forward to hosting another epic Test match both on and off the field, and are happy to confirm that most publicly available seats have been reduced in price from last year.”
Newlands Test ticket prices:
Category One: R950
Category Two: R875
Category Three: R750
Category Four: R450
Category Five (standing): R150
Scholars enclosures: R100
