Bullring Heading for Another Sellout Exrtravaganza

Bullring Heading for Another Sellout Exrtravaganza

Ticket sales for the Bidvest Wanderers Stadium have gone exceptionally well with the last tickets selling like the proverbial hotcakes.

“Fans are obviously relishing the return of international cricket to the Bullring. We look forward to again putting on a great show for them and hosting the Proteas for this inaugural match of the 2016/17 season,” commented Greg Fredericks, Chief Executive Officer.

The Stadium will this season boast a new partnership with Main Event Caterers as Master Concessionaire which promises to offer patrons a completely innovated food experience, making sure that they have the perfect addition to their cricket viewing experience. The public bars, in association with Circa, will also be geared for efficient client service.

Added to that are the improved seating in the Unity Stand and the second season introduction of the SunZone, a joint initiative with Sun International, which promises an unparalleled cricket viewing experience. In this area, patrons can enjoy waitron service to their comfortable camping chair with some food and beverage options included in the package. “We have paid a lot of attention to the feedback that we received from our customers and we are proud to give them unique experiences that promise to live as memories for a lifetime,” Fredericks added.

The Stadium has also put in place alternatives for commuting to the stadium and parking facility options to ensure that patrons are able to travel to the stadium, enjoy the event and return home safely. These options include:

  • Park n Ride from Melrose Arch
  • Zebra Cabs
  • Parking tickets located at the Wanderers Golf Club can be purchased
  • Sheshatuks tuk-tuk shuttle service

Road closures between Rudd and Irene Roads will be effective from 07:00 on Sunday, 2 October and gates will open at 08:00.

Cricket lovers are cautioned against opportunists that might try to exploit them around this game. “We want patrons to guard against illegal ticket sellers that sell counterfeit or even complimentary tickets as we have had some disappointed clientele in the past. This occurs especially when tickets are sold out. In the same breath, we caution against accepting the invitation from illegal parking attendants that try to capitalise by encouraging patrons to park on sidewalks.”

“Although we were hoping for some early Spring rain for the last bit of grass growth amidst water restrictions, we are confident that the Bullring will again deliver a great experience for all patrons in this clash of two great cricketing nations. We encourage cricket lovers to jump for the last tickets – you certainly do not want to miss this,” Fredericks added.
