Cape Town Stadium (Gallo)

  • Tickets for the Rugby World Cup Sevens in Cape Town will go on
    sale on Monday, 28 February, at 09:00 SA time.
  • Vaccinated fans will be allowed to purchase tickets for
    September’s tournament, with prices ranging from R150 to R1 750.
  • SA Rugby CEO Jurie Roux says they’ll be planning something
    special as Cape Town Stadium hosts their first Sevens event in two years.

SA Rugby announced
that tickets for Rugby World Cup Sevens 2022 hosted in Cape Town from 9-11
September would go on sale Monday, 28 February at 09:00 SA time.

The tickets will be
exclusively available and can only be purchased online through the official
ticket agency (Ticketmaster) by visiting the RWC Sevens website.

Prices range
from R150 to R1 750 for the three-day spectacular set at the
iconic Cape Town Stadium.

The health and safety
of athletes and fans are of the highest priority, with all attendees needing to
“be vaccinated to gain entry”.

“It has been a
long, dark winter for the Sevens in South Africa, but this marks our bursting
back into the light,” said Jurie Roux, CEO of SA Rugby.

“It will be 995
days since Cape Town last hosted a Sevens event when the Rugby World Cup kicks
off, and we can’t wait.

“We are planning
for a packed stadium with more teams, more action and more at stake than ever
before for a Cape Town event.”

Roux added that in the
unlikely event of the Rugby World Cup taking place without spectators, a full
refund would be made to purchasers.

The global vaccine
roll-out has allowed the return of capacity crowds worldwide, and the
expectation was that South Africa would follow suit before the September event.

“We’re envious of
sports events around the world, which have seen the return to full capacity
stadia and are very much looking forward to enjoying that experience in Cape
Town once again,” he said.

Cape Town will host
its first Sevens event since December 2019, which saw New Zealand’s men and
women achieve the double.

The last two editions
of the Cape Town Sevens have been postponed due to the ongoing global pandemic,
with SA Rugby planning something special.

“This is the
first senior World Cup to be held in South Africa for 27 years, and we’re going
to make the most of it,” he said.

“The rugby world
will be coming to Cape Town with teams that have never appeared in this country
in any format, and we’re planning to make this a very special occasion.”

Roux warned rugby fans
to beware of unofficial ticketing agencies, travel companies and websites
purporting to have tickets and packages available to the event.

The only outlet to
secure tickets without any risk was the official Ticketmaster website via www.rwcsevens.com.
