May Super Rugby Madness has come to Nelson Mandela Bay as the Southern Kings continue to strive to make Super Rugby accessible to the people of the region.
“With three home games on the cards in May, starting with the show down against the Waratahs on Saturday, the Highlanders the following weekend and our second game against the Cheetahs at the end of the month, we realised that attending every game could prove quite taxing on the average man in the street’s pocket,” said Southern Kings interim CEO, Charl Crous.
Crous said as a result the Southern Kings, together with the Nelson Mandela Bay stadium operator, Access Management, had decided to launch May Super Rugby Madness, a special rugby ticket package that allowed people to watch all three May home games for the price of two.
“People can now buy a ticket bundle that encompasses all three games, and effectively pay for just two games,” he said.
Crous went on to say that the bundles would be valid across most of the ticket price range offerings, from the R45 ticket offerings behind the poles on North and South, the R75 ticket offerings on the East Pavilion and the R110 ticket offering on the main West Pavilion.
“So where you would normally pay between R135 and R330 for tickets to three games, you will now be paying between R90 and R220,” he said.
Crous said the tickets bundles were available from Computicket outlets, as well as through the Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium’s ticketing office and the ticketing office at The Boardwalk, but that the offer was limited to this week only.
“We have really been overwhelmed by the support shown by the people of the region towards the Southern Kings and the idea of having a super rugby franchise in the region and this is just one of the ways for us to say thank you for that ongoing support,” he said.
Crous said the May Super Rugby Madness special was an additional value offering, and people would still be able to purchase tickets to watch individual games.
