4 – Via telephone to the SWC Ticketing Centre (From 18h00 on 15 April, @ 08h00 – 22h00, 7 days a week, order & pay with credit card telephonically, still need to collect physical ticket from Ticketing Centre or participating Shoprite/Checkers store)

Call 083 123 2010, choose option 4 from the menu. Once through to a call centre operator you will be guided through the process of requesting and purchasing tickets step by step. Payment will need to be taken and confirmed prior to the tickets being collected at one of the Ticketing Centres. The payment card used to pay for the tickets will be required in order to collect the tickets.

FNB’s Shine2010 website has a downloadable Last Minute Ticket Sales Guide here. This Guide contains useful information on all the different methods to purchase your tickets, as well as doubling as the order form if you’re purchasing in FNB branches, and the prices of all the tickets together with a match schedule so that you can plan your movements.

Note that tickets in this Final Ticket Sales phase are available to all members of the general public even if you have previously been awarded tickets via another sales channel (e.g. Hard Ticket Application Form or online).


  1. Great info, I have been searching the net the whole day, to find out where tickets can be purchased

    • Absolute pleasure Marvin.

      We were having the same problem, with bits of info all over the place, so it made sense to put it all together in a single post. Glad it helped you, and thanks for saying so.

  2. The post has been updated with some additional information regarding the opening times, operating days, and general procedures for each of the ticket purchase methods.

    Note that the Shoprite/Checkers stores are only starting ticket sales on Monday, 19 April and not tomorrow (15 April).

  3. Thanks, this was really hard to get info. Thanks again

    • Happy to have been of help Nelson. Thanks to you for paying us a visit here at The BlaBla Blog, and for sticking around long enough to pop a comment in.

  4. Hi

    If you look at the availability on the internet, very few seats are "sold out".

    The ones marked "not currently available" will they eventually be sold to the public?

    Are these possibly tickets reserved for Shoprite?

    If someone could help or give advice it would be greatly appreciated.

    • Darn good question Marco. We'll do our best to make sense of it for you (and all the others wondering about the same thing!)
      Stay tuned!

    • I would HOPE those are tickets allocated to tour operators/ match if they are not sold out then they should be re-released into the system.

    • "Due to the high demand, a total of 29 matches are currently no longer available (including the final, the two semi-finals and the opening game as well as all games in Durban and Cape Town). Tickets for these games might still come back (in small quantities) to the public sales in the future."
