PUBLISHED: July 14, 2022

The Springboks face Wales in the Castle Lager Incoming Series decider at DHL Stadium on Saturday. Here is all you need to know if you are attending.

With both teams having won one Test match each in the last two weeks, it all comes down to this encounter in front of the DHL Stadium Faithful.

Kick-off is at 17h05 and given the large crowd attending, spectators are urged to get to DHL Stadium early, with gates opening at 14h00 on Saturday.

It is recommended that spectators arrive by 15h00 at the latest to avoid missing the anthems and pre-match entertainment.

With no public parking available at DHL Stadium, spectators are encouraged to park in the Cape Town city bowl and catch a free MyCiTi shuttle from there.

The free MyCiTi shuttles will run between the Civic Centre, Thibault Square and Stadium Stations from 13h30 to 22h00, while those using the public parking at the Cape Town International Convention Centre will be taken to the drop-and-go area on Helen Suzman Boulevard.

The roads around DHL Stadium will be closed on Saturday, with a fan walk in place.

Fritz Sonnenberg Road (06h00-23h30), Vlei Road (06h00-22h00), Stephan Way (06h00-22h00), Fort Wynyard Street (13h00-23h30), Somerset Road (14h00-23h30), Main Road (14h00-23h30), Helen Suzman Boulevard (13h30-23h30) and Granger Bay Boulevard (14h00-23h30) will all be closed in the course of the day.

Parking restrictions will be strictly enforced in the residential areas around to the stadium. Please be cognisant and respectful of residents.

Off-street parking is available at the CTICC and at Ryk Tulbagh Square, Picbel Parkade and Plein Park.

The P1 parking area at the CTICC will be open to the public on a R100 per vehicle charge , with the P3 parking area being used exclusively for match VIPs.

Spectators can also use the free on-street parking in the CBD (free after 13h00) but please note that no security will be arranged. Alternatively there is paid parking at the V&A Waterfront within walking distance of the stadium, which is expected to be very busy.

The MyCiTi shuttles are available free of charge to everyone with a match ticket will start at 13h30 on Saturday and run until 22h00.

Shuttles will run between the Civic Centre, Thibault Square and Stadium Stations, while those parking at the CTICC will be taken to and fetched from the drop-and-go area on Helen Suzman Boulevard.

The standard hours of operation and fares will apply for all the inner city and trunk and feeder routes.

Dedicated parking has been allocated on DF Malan Drive for people with disabilities who wish to use the Stadium shuttle. Only people with disabilities with an official disability permit from the City will be allowed to park in this dedicated parking area.

There is a dedicated drop-and-go area on Helen Suzman Boulevard, but drop-off and pick-up around the stadium is very difficult and will have very long delays due to traffic congestion.

Those using e-hailing in the stadium surrounds must use the dedicated drop-and-go area on Helen Suzman Boulevard, but for those travelling in using e-hailing from further out it is advisable to be dropped off and collected in the CBD and then using the Myciti shuttle which is free to all match ticket holders.

Please print your match ticket clearly and also bring a digital version on your phone and have both ready to scan in as easily as possible at the gates.

There are no COVID-19 restrictions in place, but please be responsible and bring a mask to the stadium if you feel more comfortable wearing one.

Please note that no spectator is allowed access to the pitch. Any person invading the pitch can be prosecuted as this is a criminal offence.
