Bulls face Sharks in URC QF clash
The URC on Monday confirmed the championship’s playoff schedule, verifying the kickoff time for the South African derby as 13:45 at Loftus Versfeld.
Supporters will now have the opportunity to purchase their tickets for the decisive encounter as sales opened at 08:00 on Tuesday.
The Bulls have for the past few URC matches had some of the cheapest tickets to a rugby match.
The Bulls have kept their commitment to their supporters by continuing with the sale of discounted tickets from as little as R25 for the match.
Blue Bulls Company CEO, Edgar Rathbone, confirmed the opening of ticket sales: “We have had widespread interest and queries about our sale of tickets for the all-important Vodacom URC quarterfinal against the Cell C Sharks. We are happy to now confirm to our supporters that tickets are now available for purchase for that game scheduled for next week Saturday.
“In our effort to thank our supporters for their backing over the past two years, which have been very hard due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we had slashed our ticket prices to make them some of the most affordable. We remain committed in ensuring that our fans have affordable access to premier rugby, and, as such, we will continue to have our tickets starting at a low cost of R25.
“We are proud of our director of rugby, Jake White, his coaching staff and players for their hard work in getting the Vodacom Bulls to this point. At the start of the season, it would have been hard to imagine that the side would reach this stage. However, the team remained focused, committed and had no doubts regarding the success they could gain and the targets they had set. We wish them well.”
In accordance with government regulations, as per the Government Gazette, stadiums are at this stage permitted to accommodate 50% of their capacity, and this will be the case for the Vodacom URC quarterfinal.
