British & Irish Lions Tour to SA 2021: Ticket ballot goes Live, but SA residents have time

Supply will trump demand for ticket ballot purchase for the British & Irish Lions eight-match rugby extravaganza in South Africa in 2021. But do not be stressed about not getting in your request on time. You have from today, Wednesday, 10.30, (SA time) on 2nd September until Wednesday, 23.59 (SA time) on 16th September.

It is the biggest rugby show of the year and one of the greatest sporting occasions of 2021.

Already, 155 000 have visited South Africa’s official online site and 53 000 have registered for ticket purchase interest.
It is why this is not a one day purchasing exercise but a two-week event in preparation for the biggest global rugby show in 2021.
If you register between September 2nd and September 16th, you have an equal chance of a ticket purchase.

Entering the ballot, however, does not entitle you to or guarantee you a ticket.

This is not a first come first serve system.

The ticket ballot, as acknowledged for all elite global sporting events, is the fairest allocation of tickets, so don’t be concerned if you haven’t put in your request within the first hour. You have until 23.59 (SA time) on the 16th September.

There are eight matches to apply for and you can request a maximum of eight tickets per match. Again, this is not guarantee you will get what you requested.
You will know by the end of September whether your ticket request has been successful.

Please be cautioned that if you are a South African resident or a resident outside of the United Kingdom and Europe, the only place to request tickets to any of the eight tour matches is through the ballot on the official site of www.lionstour2021.co.za

If you are a South African resident in South Africa, no tickets purchased outside of the official South African online site will be recognized. This also applies to residents in the United Kingdom and Europe, who have to apply on the official Lions Tour site www.lionsrugby.com

Applicants in South Africa will have to use the ballot to apply for tickets to their preferred match, ticket category and quantity.
After the ticket ballot application phase has been completed, the draw will take place by a computerized selection process and applicants will be notified of the outcome of the ballot.

*Please be aware that when entering the ballot from the 2nd September to the 16th September, due to the anticipated high demand, you may be placed in a queue before entering the ticket platform. This will show up as Queuelt. Please appreciate that 200 visitors will be accommodated every one minute. You don’t lose out, if you are in the Queuelt, as you have until the 16th of September to apply for tickets.

The way the Queuelt system works, is that as soon as it is your turn you will automatically be allowed in to apply for tickets.

It is recommended entering your email address at the bottom of the page to be notified when it is your turn in the queue.

Clicking the link in the email will bring you back to your real time place in the queue.
