Cape Town - A Springbok 'season ticket' has been launched by SA Rugby in the hope to of getting the national side the biggest possible send-off ahead of this year's World Cup in Japan.

Fans will be able to attend the Rugby Championship match against the Wallabies at Ellis Park (20 July) and the final match on home soil against Argentina at Loftus Versfeld (17 August) in one single purchase of R900, with both stadiums offering lower main pavilion tickets as part of this special offering.

The package will go on sale on Monday, 1 April.

The collaboration between the hosting unions – the Golden Lions and Blue Bulls – has been designed in partnership with SA Rugby and team sponsors to give the team a special farewell. The 'season ticket' comes with the incentive of a R550 discount on the normal price.

"We only have two home Tests in 2019 and we want to sell out both of them in order to give the team the best possible launchpad to take on the world in Japan," said Jurie Roux, SA Rugby CEO.

"There are limited opportunities to see the Boks in action on home soil this year and we wanted to mark it with a special initiative to build support. This has never been done before and we hope Springbok fans rally to the challenge and attend both tests to get right behind Rassie, Siya and the team."

Tickets for the individual Tests will be available as usual, with prices starting at R100 per ticket at each venue (all prices listed below). The season tickets available on a first-come-first-served basis until the allocation is exhausted.

"Two sold out Tests would be an awesome way to head off overseas," said Rassie Erasmus, Director of Rugby at SA Rugby.

"It’s an incredible experience as a Springbok to walk out in front of a packed South African stadium and the team draw energy from that. They’ll be special occasions for us, as the rest of the time this year we’ll be overseas.

"We’re already anticipating the unique atmosphere of a packed out Emirates Airline Park and a repeat of the unbelievable Loftus vibe from 2018. We really hope to see you there."

The full range of price categories are as follows:

20 July: Springboks v Australia (Emirates Airline Park): R100, R350, R650, R900 (special ticket offering), R950

17 August: Springboks v Argentina (Loftus Versfeld): R100, R450, R600, R650, R700, R800, R900 (special ticket offering).
