Tickets for Springboks’ June Tests now available


Tickets for the Incoming Series Test Series in June have already opened in Johannesburg and Port Elizabeth, while sales in Cape Town are due to open at midday on Thursday.

The Springboks will be up against a strong Irish team that has won two of the last three RBS Six Nations titles under coach Joe Schmidt.

The Springboks will kick off a new era under recently appointed Bok coach Allister Coetzee, on June 11 at Newlands in Cape Town.

The second Test will be played at Ellis Park in Johannesburg a week later on June 18, with the final match scheduled for the Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium in Port Elizabeth on June 25.

It will be Ireland's first visit to South Africa in 12 years. And to add to the occasion, the South Africans will play in their change strip of white and green as a courtesy to the Irish team, who plays in an emerald green jersey.

SA Rugby CEO, Jurie Roux, urged rugby fans to move fast to secure their tickets to watch the Springboks in action.

“From as little as R75 to R100, rugby fans will be able to see the Springboks in action against a very good Ireland side,” said Roux.

“The Springboks represent the very best South African rugby has to offer. It is the beginning of an exciting new era for the team under the guidance of Allister Coetzee and I know Bok fans are excited to see their team in action on home turf again.”
