The tickets went on sale on Monday morning (SA time) and host union, the Bulls, revealed they were sold out on the same day.

“It’s the third sold-out Test match at Loftus Versfeld in the past three years, which is an amazing sign for rugby in South Africa, and especially Pretoria where rugby fever is at an all-time high,” said Blue Bulls Company CEO, Edgar Rathbone.

“With the rivalry between these two amazing Test sides growing in stature, fans are in for an absolute treat.

“I do not doubt that this Test selling out in such a short time will have a positive impact on the sales for the remaining Test matches to be played in South Africa later this year.”

Over the weekend, Loftus played host to 50,026 fans when the Bulls beat the Stormers in a United Rugby Championship match.

Saturday, July 6: SA v Ireland (Loftus Versfeld, Pretoria)
