Springboks' 2024 Home Test schedule announced

South Africa vs Ireland - International Test Rugby - Slider Background

One of the Springboks’ biggest rivals, Ireland, head to South Africa in 2024 for mouth-watering two-Test series, as the re-crowned World Champion Springboks come out of international test rugby hibernation in July!

In less than a day, all of the tickets for the Springboks vs. Ireland Test series opener at Loftus Versfeld were sold out.

With approximately 50,000 people expected to attend the Test, general public ticket sales began at 9 a.m. on Monday and sold out the same day. This occurs two days after a record-breaking 50,026 people attended the Vodacom URC derby between the Bulls and Stormers at Loftus Versfeld.

The world champion Springboks and the reigning Six Nations champions, Ireland, will square off in South Africa for the first time since the 2016 three-Test series.

After losing the first Test at Newlands, the Springboks went on to win that series 2-1.

Ireland are currently on a three-game winning streak against the Boks, having beaten Allister Coetzee and Rassie Erasmus’ teams in Dublin, while handing South Africa their only defeat of the 2023 World Cup in the pool stage match in Paris.

The Springboks’ home Test schedule for 2024:
Saturday, 6 July: SA vs. Ireland (Loftus Versfeld, Pretoria)
Saturday, 13 July: SA vs. Ireland (Hollywoodbets Kings Park, Durban)
Saturday, 20 July: SA vs. Portugal (Toyota Stadium, Bloemfontein)
Saturday, 31 August: SA vs. New Zealand (Emirates Airline Park, Johannesburg)
Saturday, 7 September: SA vs. New Zealand (DHL Stadium, Cape Town)
Saturday, 28 September: SA vs. Argentina (Mbombela Stadium, Nelspruit)

When the Springboks play Ireland at Loftus Versfeld in Pretoria, they will have resumed play after a 252-day break. A week later, the teams face-off again at Kings Park for the first time in eight years when the defending Six Nations winners travel to South Africa.

One week later, on July 20, the Springboks will play their first Test match against Portugal. Portugal made an impression in the Rugby World Cup by drawing with Georgia in an exciting match and then defeating Fiji 24-23 in their last pool match.

New Zealand, return for a two-Test series in August and September as part of the Castle Lager Rugby Championship. The Springboks will be aiming for a third successive victory over the All Blacks for the first time since 2009 when the teams meet at Emirates Airline Park in Johannesburg on 31 August.

A week later the show moves on to Cape Town where the All Blacks will play at the DHL Stadium for the first time. The teams’ last meeting in the Mother City was a 25-24 defeat for the Boks at Newlands in 2017.
