first_img Post by Craig Lewis  602  23 ‘ ‘ SA Rugby CEO Jurie Roux has urged fans to apply online for tickets for the 2021 British & Irish Lions tour to South Africa after the ballot officially opened on Wednesday.REMINDER: Register for interest in tickets for the 2021 British & Irish Lions tour to South Africa to qualify for the ballot‘This is now the next important step for supporters to apply online for their tickets,’ said Roux.‘More tickets will be available to home fans than to overseas fans – we want to meet them with an Army of Green to combat the Sea of Red.’Roux emphasised that it was critical for South Africans to note that there was only one route to secure tickets – by entering the ballot on will not be available at match venues, through provincial unions or at the usual retails outlets and if anyone answered an online advertisement for Lions tickets, they were in danger of being defrauded, exploited and left ticketless.‘There is massive interest in the tour and we expect it to be a hugely popular occasion, as witnessed by the many thousands of supporters who have already pre-registered for the online ticket ballot,’ added Roux.‘We have had large-scale interest through and they will all receive an email with a link to the ticket site once the ballot opens.‘The ballot closes at midnight on 16 September 2020, after which we expect all the publicly available tickets to be allocated.’The ballot for tickets to matches of the 2021 British & Irish Lions tour of South Africa opened today [Wednesday, 2 September], with rugby supporters urged to pick the tickets they wish to purchase for next year’s eight-match tour in the coming fortnight.The online ballot – a similar system to that which is used at other major global sporting events – offers rugby fans a unique opportunity to acquire tickets for what promises to be an exciting tour of the British & Irish Lions, who will face the Springboks in three Tests, as well as five other matches around South Africa.The eight-match tour, which kicks off in Cape Town on 3 July 2021, stretches across six cities over five weeks. The ticket prices are set to make them attractive to South Africans, from as little as R100 for a mid-week ticket, while the cheapest Test-match ticket is priced at R500.As from Wednesday, 2 September at 10am, registrants will be able to log in to and select tickets for all eight matches (to a maximum of eight tickets per match).Those who have not yet registered can still do so at Applications will close at 23:59pm (SA time) on Wednesday, 16 September, with all successful applicants being notified on at the end of the month.South Africa, as a territory, has the majority ticket allocation and South African residents will have access to an affordable ticket-pricing tier structure.Ticket prices for matches against the DHL Stormers at Cape Town Stadium, the Cell C Sharks at Jonsson Kings Park and the Vodacom Bulls at Loftus Versfeld range in price from R250 to R600.Tickets for mid-week matches against a SA Invitational team in Port Elizabeth and against SA A at Mbombela Stadium are even cheaper, ranging from only R100 to R350.The cheapest Test-match ticket is R500 – less than the price of a ticket to a 2019 Springbok Test – and increases to R1,250 and R2,000 to the top-priced ticket of R3,000.Photo: Getty Images Watch: I wanted to rip Jean’s head off – Jaque FourieJean de Villiers and Schalk Burger share some epic memories with former Springbok teammate Jaque Fourie on the first episode of season two of their ‘Use It or Lose It’ show.SA Rugby MagUndoLife Exact BrazilGrace Jones Is Now 72 Years Old, This Is Her NowLife Exact Brazil|SponsoredSponsoredUndoLoans | Search AdsLooking for loan in Hong Kong?
