Tickets limited for Soweto showdown

Only 3 200 tickets will be made available to the public for the Super 14 final in Soweto.

Orlando Stadium has a capacity of 36500, 13500 less than the Bulls’ home ground of Loftus and this presents distribution issues.

The public are limited to purchasing two tickets per person at R350 each at Computicket. The remainder will be distributed between season ticket holders (14 000), suite owners (10 000), shareholders (BBRU and SAIL – 3 000), while others are allocated to dignitaries, professional players, coaching teams, management, staff, SA Rugby, Sanzar, sponsors, business partners, suppliers and complimentary tickets (5 300).

Last week more tickets were placed on Computicket late in the week as suite and season ticket holders didn’t use their first preference opportunity.
