WP warn ticket touts
- 12 Sep 2017
WP Rugby says tickets for the Springboks vs All Blacks Test at Newlands can't be sold for more than face value.
Public tickets for the Test were sold out in less than an hour on Monday. On Tuesday, some were trying to sell the tickets they had bought at inflated prices. On Gumtree, one person was selling 10 tickets for R25,000 (the advert has since been removed).
'While public tickets that went on sale on 11 September are currently sold out, the public are advised to be cognisant of the fact that only tickets bought from wprugby.computicket.com, Computicket outlets or the stadium box office are guaranteed valid for the Rugby Championship Test match between the Springboks and the All Blacks at Newlands on 7 October,' WP Rugby said in a statement on Tuesday.
'These are the only outlets which are licenced to sell tickets to Newlands. Tickets obtained from any other source cannot be guaranteed valid. Newlands 2017 season tickets are valid for the Test, with no further action required.
'Please also be aware that the terms of sale prohibit the on-sale of tickets for a price greater than the face value of the ticket.'
