Cape Town — Ticket sales for the Springboks’ home Tests will go on public sale at noon on 9 March, SA Rugby announced on Thursday.

Virtual card holding clients of Springbok partner, FNB, will have an “early bird” window to secure tickets on 7 and 8 March, with public sales opening at 12h00 on 9 March for most venues.

The Boks’ season opener against Wales at Loftus Versfeld (2 July) will be the first time in almost three years that South Africans will see the team live, while it will also mark four years since the Boks played in Bloemfontein (9 July v Wales). The third Test against Wales (16 July) will be the first time the team has played at Cape Town Stadium in front of a crowd.

Those matches are followed by the double header against New Zealand – at Mbombela Stadium and Ellis Park on 6 and 13 August respectively – before the home season closer at Kings Park on 24 September.

Tickets are priced within a broad range with all venues offering an entry level price of R150 (R200 at Ellis Park) with top-priced tickets at R1,500 for the mini-series against the All Blacks.
