Port Elizabeth - Rugby fans will be able to watch a full day of high-octane international Sevens rugby from as little as R80 at South African rugby’s biggest party at Nelson Mandela Bay South Africa Sevens tournament later this year.

Tickets went on sale on Tuesday for the SA leg of the hugely popular international HSBC Sevens World Series tournament, which this year moves to an exciting new venue at the Nelson Mandela Bay stadium in Port Elizabeth.

The event takes place on December 9-10 and tickets are expected to sell fast for an event that in venues such as Wellington, New Zealand, sells out within minutes of the tickets going on sale.

Ticket prices on Friday are: Upper Tier R80, Lower Tier R120, while premier seating on the Grand Stand costs R250.

Prices for Saturday are: Upper Tier R100, Lower Tier R150 and Lower Tier (Premier Seating) R300.

“Rugby fans will be able to watch top-class, international Sevens rugby for as little as R80. This includes a full day’s action plus an exciting line-up of entertainment. Supporters will definitely get full value for their money,” said Andy Marinos, General Manager: Commercial and Marketing at SARU.

“The Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium offers superb viewing from just about every angle in the stadium and I am confident that with this modern, world-class facility we will soon establish this tournament as one of the premier events of the HSBC Sevens World Series.

“I would like to invite all rugby fans to come and join rugby’s biggest party on 9-10 December in Port Elizabeth. Book your ticket early to avoid disappointment,” said Marinos.

South Africa will host the third leg of the hugely popular international HSBC Sevens World Series tournament in the brand new Nelson Mandela Bay stadium in the Friendly City.

The new Sevens season kicks off on November 25-26 at the Gold Coast in Australia, followed by Dubai a week later.
