Cape Town - Following the Springboks’ shock win over the All Blacks this past weekend, there has been an upsurge in the interest in the return match at Loftus Versfeld, scheduled for Saturday, October 6.
On Tuesday, the Blue Bulls Rugby Company announced that the Test was officially sold out.
This means that all 50 000 tickets have been snapped up, with only a handful of hospitality tickets left at Castle Corner.
The Boks beat the All Blacks 36-34 in Wellington last Saturday to record their first win in New Zealand in nine years and breathe new life into Springbok rugby.
“The Blue Bulls Company would like to confirm that all general stand tickets for the Test match between the Springboks and All Blacks have been sold out,” a statement said.
“However, there are still a limited amount of tickets available at Castle Corner starting at R4 595 excluding VAT per person. Castle Corner is the only place inside the stadium, other than in a suite, where you may consume alcohol during the game.
“These tickets include full catering and full bar.
“There are also limited tickets available to shared hospitality for ‘non-viewing’ suites, starting at R4 195 excluding VAT per person. These tickets will include full catering and bar before and after the game.”
The Boks will face Australia in Port Elizabeth on September 29 in their next Rugby Championship match.
