Has winter given you the Cricket blues? Don’t despair! While the Proteas are busy licking their wounds, Rugby fever is starting to set in. The Springboks are gearing up for kick-off at the opening game of the 2019 Rugby Championship which will be hosted in Johannesburg for the first time in 11 years.
With the Rugby World cup around the corner, the clash of the southern hemisphere’s giants will result in an abbreviated schedule for this year. Fans can expect a shortened three round, six match series rather than the traditional six round, twelve match tournaments.
While the tournament may be condensed this year, the action will be nothing short of exciting and with the latest additions to the Springbok training squad, we are expected to see a strong merger of backline players.
Kick off for the 2019 Rugby Championship starts on the 20th of July at Ellis Park stadium where the Boks will go head to head in a match against the Wallabies. This is a game you don’t want to miss. Tickets are going fast but if you are planning to get in on the live action, we suggest planning ahead of time to avoid disappointment, something the Proteas should’ve kept in mind.
Fans can expect to pay between R350.00 to R950.00 for game tickets with an additional parking fee of R200.00 per vehicle. At Selecta, we want to ensure you and your mates have the ultimate Rugby experience without worrying about traffic, designated drivers or illegal parking fines. Our premium shuttle services will get you and your mates to the game and back again without any hassles. The bonus is that you don’t have to pay for the parking fee or worry about how many celebratory beers you have had already.
