The Sharks regret to inform fans that all tickets for the Absa Currie Cup final taking place on Saturday 25 October at The Absa Stadium Durban have been sold out.

Finals don’t come around too often and when they do, fans are quick to snatch up all available tickets before they are sold out. Sharks’ fans have been fortunate to have two home semi-final and two home finals in two years which is more than the average. With the Sharks having finished the pool stages of this year’s Absa Currie Cup at the top of the log – like last year’s Vodacom Super 14 – they have again secured home ground status to host two finals in two years

Unfortunately, for those who were unable to get hold of tickets, the bad news is that all stand tickets to the final are now sold out. There are limited seats left on the Scholar Benches at R150 each.

The Sharks would like to thank everyone who has been behind the team all season and thank them for their continued support.

  • Two Bulls travel packages available for final
    13 October 2008 (13:42)

    The Blue Bulls Company (Pty) Ltd has received 2000 tickets for the ABSA Currie Cup final between the Vodacom Blue Bulls and the Sharks from The Sharks (Pty) Ltd.
    These tickets have been allocated to the Vodacom Blue Bulls’ team, the under 21′s, the Blue Bulls Rugby Union (clubs), SAIL, sponsors and other stakeholders.

    The Bulls have put together two traveling packages for their supporters in order to attend the final in Durban and these tickets will be on sale from Wednesday morning.

    You are more than welcome to make a credit card booking or to pay cash for these travel packages at Loftus’ ticket office (012 420 0700).

    Travel package 1:

    The first option is to fly to Durban from Lanseria on Saturday morning and to enjoy your lunch (including a cash bar) at the stadium two hours before kick off. The package will also include light snacks on the plane and you will fly back to Lanseria shortly after the match.

    Travel package 2:

    The second option is to travel by bus to Durban. The busses will depart from Loftus Versfeld early on Saturday morning and you will receive snacks (lunch box) on the bus as well as a meal and cash bar at the stadium. The bus will depart for Pretoria immediately after the final.

    Apart from these travel packages no other tickets are available to the public.

    The CEO of the Blue Bulls Company (Pty) Ltd, Barend van Graan, says he is very sorry that there are no other tickets available to the public for the final because we are not hosting the final, but in spite of this he would like to use this opportunity to thank the loyal Blue Bulls’ fans for their dedicated support.

    “Your support throughout the season is greatly appreciated and I know that there will be a lot of Blue Bulls supporters in Durban for the final.”

    The prices for the travel packages will be finalized as soon as possible. Please watch our website (www.bluebulls.co.za) for more detail and then make your booking.

    The Sharks (Pty) Ltd confirmed on Monday at 13:30 that all the tickets for the final have been sold out. This includes the tickets which was one sale through Computicket.

  • That’s the stuff. Going to be a humdinger.

    What’s the bet there are 20,000 Bulls flags in that stadium and not just 2000?

  • I said it last season, I said it this season – if you live near Durban the best buy one can make is a season ticket.

  • In that case it would be wise to buy a season ticket regardless of where you live.
    Hell the NRU (are they still called that) are going to be coining it for quiete a while.

  • @Salmonoid (Comment 17) : They are going to be coining it, and that isn’t a bad thing when you ask yourself, what other union has had home ground for 2 finals and 2 semis in 2 years? You spend money to make money and I think things are looking rather peachy for the future.

    We just need to hang on to the core of players and coaching staff and we should have a golden period.

    One interesting thing is Season Tickets are vaild for finals, but at the Bulls, they charge their season ticket holders for semis and finals!!!!

    Now that is ripping the ring a bit…

    I may be getting a tad greedy here but why is the Lions Test not included in the season ticket if the Sharks Co. is doing so we financially?

  • Just to explain something to everyone.

    If you did not buy your season ticket before 1 May this year you will not be entitled to “first option” on the LIONS test ticket.

    When in SA over the Summer (your winter) I was going to move my ticket and the guys at the stadium ticket office advised me against it because they had already issued all the non season ticket seat numbers to Computicket etc. for preperation of sales for the 2009 test.

    So DON’t rush in to buy one if you don’t have one already, if you are only doing it to get the Lions test ticket.

    From the KZNRU
    Please note, due to the Lions Tour in 2009, and the fact that a Season Ticket in 2009 will not include the Lions Test in Durban, those people who bought Season Tickets prior to 1 May, 2008 will have first option to buy Test Tickets. Anyone buying a Season Ticket after that date will not have an allocation of Test Tickets to draw from, and may only secure one should a Season Ticket Holder (prior to the 1 May deadline) not take up his or her option(s).

  • @Dive Pass (Comment 19) :

    I think it would push the price up a bit to high and they would then lose out on some renewals. A lot of people may not want to watch the Boks play the Lions or as is the case with me. Are season ticket holders who don’t live in SA and may not be able to make the test.

    I figure if I buy them I’ll always have a ticket for when I want to pop over and visit and if not I’m sure someone in the area wouldn’t mind using my tickets to see the games when I’m not in town.

  • Yes that is an option as well. Do you know approximately the season tickets go on sale? I will need to make sure I account for them in my monthly budgeting
