South Africa v England 1st Test – Pretoria

Tour Dates: 25th – 31st December 2020

With this excellent package you can enjoy the start of the 2019/ 2020 South Africa v England Cricket Test match series.

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! The below itinerary includes 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.
