Emirates Airline Park aims to draw the largest crowd since 1993 where over 60 000 supporters crowded the then Ellis Park Stadium.
To date it was the biggest crowd for Test matches between SA and France played in South Africa. The overall South African record for a test match is also held by this stadium where in 1955 over 100 000 supporters took to the Prestigious Stadium for a test match between the Springboks and the British and Irish Lions, standing, sharing seats and some of them with friends and family on their shoulders.
Since then a lot has changed; tickets are now a click away online at lionsrugby.computicket.com or at the Stadium Ticket Office or any Computicket outlet. Please don’t buy tickets from any other reseller as this will not be valid on the day.
The top crowd figures against the France in SA Rugby history are:
1993: 60 000 (Ellis Park Stadium)
2002: 52 330 (Ellis Park Stadium)
* Ticket sales for the match this Saturday are at 52 000 with two days to go. Let’s break the record for a #SAvFRA test!
Gautrain busses, Park and Ride or Uber and sit in comfort to watch the Green and Gold in action, led by the Emirates Lions Captain, Warren Whiteley.
