Time for the Rugby Championship to come to Durban

Looking back over the recent Springbok home fixtures in the Rugby Championship, there’s one fact that stands out like a dog’s balls. Kings Park in Durban has not been awarded a fixture in the competition since it’s re-branding as such in 2012.

Kings Park last hosted a “big test” in the 2011 season, with Australia playing the Boks in Durban in the final year of the Tri-Nations competition. Since then, despite the expansion of the competition and the inclusion of Argentina, the flagship Southern Hemisphere series has boycotted the East Coast, with at least two matches played at Loftus, Newlands, Ellis Park and the National Stadium in Soweto during that time.

As one of the premier unions in the country, with one of the finest stadiums, the Sharks (and Durban) frankly deserve better.

The All Blacks play the Springboks in South Africa on 25 July 2015, as part of a shortened Rugby Championship competition in the World Cup year. SARU have yet to decide on a venue for that test and the Sharks would dearly love it to take place in Durban. Given that the last time the All Blacks played in Durban was 2009 (with Johannesburg hosting them an incredible four times since then), I feel that it is only fair and reasonable to expect that SARU should allocate that test to Kings Park.

I urge all Sharks fans to make contact with the national body and express their strongest feelings on this point (respectfully, though, as behoves a Sharks fan!) ahead of 9 December, when they will apaprently announce their decision on Test venues for 2015.

Let’s use the hashtag #AllBlacksForDurban to show our support for this cause and leave SARU in no doubt whatsoever that they simply have no other choice but to bring the world’s greatest rugby clash to Durban on 25 July next year.

You can contact SARU via FaceBook and Twitter.

  • If anything they should host at the MM stadium. Kings park is a nightmare during but test matches, more so if you are at all claustrophobic…

  • I dont want to pee on anyone’s bonfire but attendance at KP hasn’t exactly been spectacular, maybe if we can show we can fill a stadium in 2015 we’ll have better luck with internationals?

  • Sorry but i have to disagree here. As much as I love the Sharks and Durban, having been to Ellis Park to Watch the Boks vs All Blacks i am now convinced that all Bok games vs the top teams in the World should only be played at Ellis Park. if u want to watch the Boks vs NZ, Aus, Eng, Ireland, France etc then u should make the trip to Jhb. Create a national stadium much like Twickenham, Murrayfield, Landsdown Road etc. The atmosphere at Ellis Park for a Bok game cannot be matched anywhere else.

    Type in: Moses Mabhida Stadium, Isaiahntshangase Road, Durban, KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa

    See why SARU is reluctant to schedule a Test match at Rinkie-Dink Park. :twisted:

  • @robdylan (Comment 15) : Which is probably why we cant fill stadiums besides Ellis Park for tests. Teams hate playing at at altitude so why not play every game at Ellis Park and make teams suffer at altitude and with a packed stadium. There are more All Black than Bok supporters in Cape Town and to be blunt the durban crowd care more about whether the wife and kids have coke and popcorn than they do about the rugby. I love watching the Sharks at Kings Park, even though these days its barely half full. But nothing beats the Boks at Ellis Park

  • @Big Fish (Comment 17) : I think you are both missing my point.

    If your country is SMALL then it makes sense to consolidate all your test at one venue, because everyone who wants to has at least a reasonable chance of getting to the test.

    In SA, the plan you propose would mean that nobody who doesn’t live on the highveld would ever get to see the Boks play live.

  • People keep saying that Kings Park is never full for SR or CC, which is true, but IS ANY OTHER STADIUM APART FROM NEWLANDS FILLING UP EITHER? By that logic, all games should be at Newlands. Kings Park actually get probably the second best attendance for Super Rugby in South Africa. I have NO DOUBT in my mind that if the All Blacks came to Durban, we could fill that stadium!

  • @robdylan (Comment 18) :
    Nah – the problem was me being lazy and just responding to your last comment.

    I actually dont believe that we should play all our games at Ellis Park. My point is simply that Durban doesnt deserve an international game when even a reasonably successful SR team like the Sharks can barely pull in a home crowd.

  • @Big Fish (Comment 22) : but by that logic nor does Loftus, which wasn’t any fuller for non-test games this year.

    Ditto Ellis Park.

    Following that logic, every test should be at Newlands because nobody else deserves one based on non-test match attendance.

  • @Big Fish (Comment 25) : Yes you can. Kings Park this year was getting crowds of 25-35 thousand, wasn’t it? And we may have been doing well objectively, but we weren’t playing attractive rugby. At the end of the 2012 season we were playing attractive rugby and doing well and we were getting proper crowds then.

    @robdylan (Comment 23) : You gonna quote me on that last line? ;-)

  • There are some attendance figures listed on this site:

    http://rugby.statbunker.com/competitions/HomeAttendance?comp_id=453

    Considering that the Sharks were top of the log for a good part of the season, their attendance figures were somewhat disappointing.

    Also look back at some seasons where the Stormers or the Bulls were top teams and you’ll see the difference.

    But I’m not vouching for the accuracy.

  • I’ve been saying for a while now that Durban just doesn’t have the rugby-watching public of Cape Town or Joburg and Pretoria. I found an interesting article about that on the web. You can find it here: http://thegeneral.superbru.com/post/28362430574/why-newlands-is-fuller-than-kings-park-a-theory
    One can debate the man’s assumptions, but ultimately I think that’s the reason for the attendance levels. Specifically in the rugby-watching demographic I reckon Durban doesn’t offer as much in terms of jobs, etc…and so our people go to Joburg, Pretoria, Cape Town…and the UK for work reasons…and attendance at KP suffers. Some research on that might be worthwhile for someone to do!

  • The other perspective in this debate is this: the Sharks are a big brand and one of the best supported rugby teams worldwide. They produce many Springboks and so, in my opinion, from that point of view alone deserve at least some of the “big test” pie. I’m not saying that we should have more or even the same amount of big tests as Ellis Park, but at least regular big tests (basically Aus or New Zealand). If Durban does not get a big test next year, there will have been 11 big tests in SA since the last big one in Durbs. I don’t think that ratio is fair. Of course, if Durbs does get a big test, it is important for us to do whatever we can about the attendance figures: marketing, packages to attract viewers from further afield…and all of us supporters getting our butts there!

  • Kings park as a Stadium needs a serious overhaul…its dirty and run down and quite a few seats are broken. Growth Point have signed for 3yrs but dont be too shocked if after that the Sharks relocate to Moses Mabhida Stadium. The ban on people bringing in alcohol to braai on the outer fields etc has also caused a decline in the numbers. Rugby in Durban has lost the purists and now its become a family show where people in the stands get upset if u yell for your team too loudly as their darling kids are trying to enjoy their candy floss. I love Durban and the Sharks but whats best for the Boks is not Kings park im afraid

  • @fyndraai (Comment 27) : @fyndraai (Comment 28) :
    Am I misreading you link – according to what I get out of it The Sharks had the best average attendance of all the SuperRugby franchises with an average of 29,948 (just 52 short of 30 000) with a highest attendance of 34,634 and a lowest of 22,722. These figures, to me anyway, fall perfectly in the larger range of those put forward by @David12246 (Comment 26) : and which you dispute.

  • @Salmonoid the Subtle (Comment 32) : Yup. Sharks had the highest average off all teams in the SR 2014. 3rd but only a couple short of Lions in CC ’14. It’s bs that stadium numbers are to blame.

    The other argument is altitude. ABs like the other top sides are elite professionals not amateurs like back in the day when it was a factor. The training they do takes this into account and they are not affected by the altitude any more than us. Anyone remember ABs vs Boks 2013? Did they look more tired and out of breath than us in that insanely fast paced game? … exactly.

    Another thing that is rather quite impressive about the sharks top placed attendence during SR15 is we have to deal with a rainy, humid and searingly hot season at the beginning during which we played a major portion of our home games!

    Weather is not an argument either as Durbans weather during July is awesome. It’s not a rainy season, its neither too cold or too hot. Perfect for rugby.

I cant comment on other stadiums but i kno SARU has a big block booking at Kings PArk in prime seats that season ticket holders cannot get so a lot are frustrated by that as SARU only uses them for test matches or a CC final etc. So those tickets are sold but nobody in those seats.

  • @Salmonoid the Subtle (Comment 32) :

    The Sharks were way ahead on the log over the other SA teams and thus should have been way ahead on attendance also. Just look back at 2012 and 2011 when the Stormers and the Bulls were title contenders. Their attendance numbers were around 40K.

    But you may draw your own conclusions. I just posted the link to settle some of the questions that were asked. I don’t think it has any bearing on SARUs choices for Test matches. I think it’s more along the lines of:

    The KZNRU did not bid for a Test match.
    OR
    SARU feared a PR embarrassment playing in a run-down-rinkie-dink stadium, right next to one much better.
    OR
    There’s been so much antipathy towards the Boks in the last three years on THIS website that SARU decided to give Durbs the middle finger. ;)

  • What I would like to know is why you guys suddenly want a Test match in Durban? Just a few months ago the prevailing attitude towards the Boks was: “HM is a imbicile. The Boks are awful. We don’t care…yada…yada all negative.”

    What’s changed?

  • @gregkaos (Comment 33) :

    The issue with altitude is physiological. More red blood cells. Whether players are professional has no bearing.

    The problem is that you have to live at altitude. Many players in the Bok team do not. The case with the AB match was not about fitness. It was about playing styles. The ABs conserved energy whilst the Boks played high tempo. They were fresher towards the end this year also. If the Boks are going to persist in playing that style against the ABs, they should schedule every match in Durban.

  • @fyndraai (Comment 41) : Firstly I dont give a toss where the Boks play their matches. My reason for responding to your post was because you are trying to get a dig in at the Sharks and a blogger, the only problem being that the stats, as posted, proved the blogger right and that the Sharks were the best supported union SuperRugby this year. You then go on to make claims about the Stormers and Bulls support in 2011 and 2012 but dont post any links to prove your claim, why not. If your claim is so accurate then it really only tells me that the Bulls and Stormers have fair weather supporters.

  • The root cause of the bad attendance at K.P has nothing to do with fan apathy in Durban,but everything to do with the Shark’s management apathy to the fans.
    The entire Sharks marketing focus is on selling the team,and not the game.Big difference as attested to by the majority of the fanatics on this page ,most of whom have never been to K.P in years and don’t live in Durban or even in S.A.
    Their support of the team is great,as is in most of the venues the Sharks play in.Sharks support for the team in Durban is huge.But most of those supporters can happily support the team at home in front of the T.V.
    Game day at K.P is a stale repetitive experience,it is steeped in the 90′s and unless it is given a radical overhaul it will carry on dwindling.
    The Sharks marketing effort should be entirely about promoting game attendance,and not about promoting the kind of support that can be achieved at home in front of the T.V.

  • @SheldonK (Comment 39) :If KP is anything like Newlands then block bookings and season ticket holders not pitching is a big reason why good seats remain empty on game days.
    One would think that in this modern era it would be a pretty easy task to reallocate “booked” seats that are not going to be utilised on game day. I get to Newlands quiete often, some of their seating is uber crap and there is no way that I will watch the game from them especially when there there is open seating in much better positions.

    I have been a supporter since my first trip to Kings Park as a seven year old in 1957.
    So I think I have earned the right to an opinion.
    My point ,is will I be a worse supporter at home in front of my T.V.than at the game,in a dirty ageing stadium watching the same stale show that I had dished up to me for so many years.
    Gold season tickets are in excess of R5000 for a pair,plus parking at another R1000.

  • @The hound (Comment 53) : No you miss my point. Nowhere am I judging you on what type of supporter you are or would be. All Im saying is that, given the opportunity, I would be a season ticket holder. Maybe I feel this way because I get so few opportunities to see the team play live that when I do I make the effort to support them – be it the age group teams, VC team or the Big boys. Anyway I dont doubt that you are a passionate supporter.
