Tickets for the 2022 Rugby Sevens World Cup in Cape Town go on sale from Monday 28 February at 9.00am South African time. The three-day event, which is due to take place from September 9-11, will see the world’s best players from 40 teams compete for the title of men’s and women’s world champions.
In a statement, it was said that “Cape Town will provide a scenic and iconic backdrop to the tournament and the organizers anticipate a packed stadium with more teams, more action and more on the line than ever before during a event in Cape Town”.
This 2022 edition follows a successful event in San Francisco, USA in 2018 where New Zealand claimed victory in the men’s and women’s tournaments to beat England and France respectively in the final.
“Following in the footsteps of rugby sevens’ second highly impactful appearance at the Tokyo Olympics, the Rugby Sevens World Cup in Cape Town will provide an ideal platform for the world’s best players to show off the speed, skill and drama of rugby sevens and inspire many more new players and fans around the world,” said World Rugby chairman Sir Bill Beaumont.
Along the same lines, Jurie Roux, CEO of SA Rugby, said: “The opportunity to see the best rugby teams on the planet compete for the title of world champion has not been seen in South Africa. South since 1995, which will make this a very special occasion.
A total of 21 teams have already secured their places in Cape Town and over the next few months attention will shift to regional competitions as the remaining 19 places will be filled from around the world.
Tickets will cost between R150 and R1750, with most tickets (72%) costing between R250 for Category D on the first day and R1350 for Category B on the third day.
Discounted family and school tickets and packages as well as a “Party Stand” package will also be available.
“The health and safety of athletes and fans will be of the highest priority, and the current expectation is that all participants will need to be vaccinated in order to enter. This requirement can be dropped in due course, in which case the requirement will be removed,” Roux adds.
