Lions tickets sold out

Tickets for certain British & Irish Lions matches have already been sold out.

Tickets for all the games are being purchased in two phases, with the first phase nearly complete after beginning in late November. This first phase was reserved for season-ticket and suite-holders, and an announcement will be made on Friday which games still have tickets left.

“The impact has been that some matches have already been sold out,” said Andre Homan, SA Rugby’s project manager for the Lions tour, “but we will make an announcement on Friday. That marks 100 days before the series kicks off.”

The series starts against the Highveld XV on 30 May in Rustenberg but Homan said unsurprisingly the three Tests were most popular.

“We made a commitment to our loyal supporters they would have first option on tickets and the interest from them has been exceptional,” he said. “The Test matches are obviously in high demand and there has been considerable uptake in Cape Town for the two non-Tests.”

“We will  announce all the details of what tickets are available at what price and where they can be purchased on Friday.”
