Boks v All Blacks at DHL Stadium – Ticket sales process

PUBLISHED: May 24, 2024

Tickets for the Castle Lager Rugby Championship Test between the Springboks and All Blacks at DHL Stadium will go on sale to the public on 19 June, following a public registration process.

Given the high expected demand for tickets, a public registration of interest will be held from 27 May to 9 June and a ticket ballot process will be conducted to ensure a fair process as well as to reduce the number of secondary resales, ticket fraud, and illegally counterfeited tickets, with various physical- and digital safety controls to be put in place.

A ticket ballot is used by many sporting bodies across the world; and is the fairest way of giving people a chance to purchase tickets. This system will also reduce the number of frustrated customers stuck in the queue for what will be a high-demand event.

Registration of interest is an entry into the ticket ballot and does not automatically secure your tickets, but a place in the draw; successful applicants randomly selected from the draw will be invited to purchase up to four (4) tickets per customer on a first-come, first-served basis.

All registrations are treated equally, so it does not matter when in the registration window you complete the process, but only one registration per customer will go into the draw.

Important to note:

  • Registration of interest via Ticketmaster will take place from 27 May to 9 June.
  • The Ticketmaster registration link will be published on ticketmaster.co.za, thestormers.com, wprugby.com, and our social media channels when registration opens on 27 May.
  • Successful applicants randomly drawn through the ticket ballot process will receive an email by 17 June with a unique, secured link and password to purchase tickets on 19 June through Ticketmaster.
  • Each link and password will allow you the chance to purchase a maximum of four (4) tickets per customer and are sold on a first come, first served basis from available inventory. Please note that those who receive a link are not guaranteed tickets.
  • To purchase Tickets on Ticketmaster, you need to register a Ticketmaster account at Ticketmaster.co.za.
