You know, the ones just above the tunnel on the half way line, with the royalty lounge bar and restaurant just 10 steps away, that’s right, those ones, but what a performance, let me explain …
Our season tickets are for all Eastern Province rugby and Stadium management events, this apparently isn’t one of those, no, this tournament is apparently ‘owned’ by S.A.Rugby and the Sevens organizers!
We complained, as did, I have no doubt others, I could understand if a totally non-related event was being planned (bullfighting? top gear?) but this is rugby and that’s what we signed (and paid) up for.
We got the phone call last week, we can have our seats but have to pay for them, R 150.00 ( £ 10 ) for both days, which is apparently half the price that the public are being offered them at. My mate (the ticketmaster) collected our tickets yesterday, when he met me for a drink yesterday afternoon and gave me the good news I asked him if our parking ticket was valid for the event? Oops he said, he’d forgot to ask, a quick phone call to the stadium ticket office and they confirmed our parking ticket would be valid (confirmed by e-mail)
A couple of phone calls to sort out accommodation close to the stadium and that was that, can’t wait!
The new Sevens season starts this weekend over in Oz (Skilled stadium, Gold Coast) then Dubai (29 / 30 Nov) then us 🙂
