Cricket South Africa to Welcome Fans Back to Stadiums Across the Country

With President Cyril Ramaphosa moving South Africa to an adjusted level one of the COVID-19 lockdown, Cricket South Africa has announced that preparations have been made for cricket stadiums to host a maximum of two thousand fans across the various venues in the country. 

CSA says capacity will be split over suites, stands, and the grass embankments ticket sales to fans will be conducted online only, in line with the health and safety regulations to reduce interaction with spectators.

The online function will allow the fans to download and self-print the tickets in a PDF format.

CSA’s Acting Chief Executive Officer Pholetsi Moseki says the stadia will create an “Outer Ring”, prior to the turnstiles where security will validate that every patron gaining access to the precinct is fully vaccinated.

“The verification process will require patrons to either produce their original vaccination card or present a printed copy of the SA Government issued Vaccinated Certificate. Alternatively, the patron may also present a digital version of the Vaccinated Certificate.” 

Moseki says cricket is in a good space and a lot of hard work taking place to ensure that the sport is placed on the top spot.  

“We want fans to come and experience the new look stadium experience and we remind fans that tickets will be sold on a first come first serve basis.”  

Moseki says all tickets will be unreserved to allow spectators the ability to social distance and fans will need to scan their own tickets once they arrive at the turnstiles.
