Ticket sales for Sunday’s fourth one-day international between South Africa and Australia at St George’s Park have been slow, but officials expect them to spike by the weekend.
Although general public sales are low, the corporate hospitality was sold out almost a week before the time.
“We urge people to secure their tickets before match day to avoid standing in long queues on Sunday morning,” EP Cricket commercial manager Leigh Deyzel said.
“We are calling on all cricket lovers to come out and support the Proteas and give them the Nelson Mandela Bay welcome they deserve.”
“We are very excited to be hosting three international matches this season with a further three allocated to St George’s next summer.”
“By having capacity crowds, we send out a clear message that Nelson Mandela Bay and St George’s are ready to continue hosting top international teams,” Deyzel said.
South Africa and Australia arrive in Port Elizabeth tomorrow with training sessions planned for Friday and Saturday.
The match is scheduled to start at 10am on Sunday.
The stadium gates will open at 8am and the ticket office at St George’s is open weekdays from 8.30am to 4.30pm and from 9am to 4pm on Saturday.
Unreserved tickets cost R160 for adults and R100 for scholars and pensioners. Reserved seats range from R210 to R240.
Tickets are also available from www.ticketpros.co.za and various retail outlets (full list available on the ticketpros website).
