Springbok fans will have only three opportunities in South Africa – one of them being at DHL Newlands on July 11 – to see the Rugby World Cup squad take shape as the 100-day countdown to the tournament kick off (June 10) draws nearer.
Tickets for the 2015 Castle Lager Rugby Championship matches against New Zealand in Johannesburg (July 25) and Argentina in Durban (August 8) are already on sale. The match against a World XV at DHL Newlands (July 11) will go on sale on in June.
The Boks will also play Australia in Brisbane (July 18) and Argentina in Buenos Aires (August 15) in a season condensed to clear the calendar for the Rugby World Cup. That means supporters have limited opportunities to see Heyneke Meyer’s final squad take shape.
And fans are being offered exceptional added value by host unions when buying their tickets; fans of the Lions and Sharks can bundle in a season ticket with their Test ticket for as little as R330 for example, which includes their final home Vodacom Super Rugby match(es) and home encounters in the Absa Currie Cup (terms and conditions apply), whilst tickets for the World XV match at DHL Newlands start at just R100!
All the ticketing information for the Springboks’ three home matches is below:
