Newlands will host the All Blacks for the first time since 2008 when they take on the Springboks on October 7, with public tickets going on sale on September 11. 

The first Test match between the Springboks and All Blacks, at Newlands, took place in 1928, with the All Blacks winning the ‘Umbrella Test’ 13-5.

The Rugby Championship Test this year will be only the 10th encounter between the two teams at the second oldest active Test venue in the world after Lansdowne Road.

Public ticket sales for the match will cater for a diverse audience, ranging in price from R100 for the scholars’ enclosure, R150 for standing room and R450 for selected seats, up to R950 for prime seats.

Due to overwhelming demand for this match and with limited tickets available to the public, supporters are encouraged to secure their tickets as early as possible to avoid disappointment.

Given the current Newlands suite and season ticket sales, there are 25 000 public tickets available for purchase, which are expected to sell quickly.
