CENTURION/PRETORIA 1ST CRICKET TEST MATCH

The boxing day test match has traditionally been played in Durban. In 2018 it was moved to Supersport Park in Centurion/Pretoria, with cricket South Africa citing falling crowds in Durban. This is the 1st Test Match of the series, which is always vital for either team's hope of success for the series - 1 up with 4 to play is a good position to be in! We have included 4 star hotels in the city, but we can of course book a 5 star hotel if that is what you would prefer.

This package includes seated match tickets for all 5 days, and transfers each day. We can tailor-make whatever you want, around this package. Please ask us to quote for flights, or you can just take the ground package. There is also an option for a shared hospitality package - please ask us for details.
