Avoid going stir crazy: Best places you can watch the next rugby game

 In Things to do

Having friends over for a braai and to watch the rugby can be fun but sometimes we aren’t in the mood to spend another Saturday inside the house. Well we’ve got you covered with some of the best places you can watch the next rugby game!

Live, of course

Nothing beats the thrill of watching a rugby match live. Most rugby matches are played in a stadium near you at some point so keep an eye on the fixtures and be sure to book your ticket in advance. Some stadiums you can consider:

  • Loftus Versveld
  • Ellis Park
  • FNB Stadium (Soccer City)
  • SuperSport Park

In a sporting pub/restaurant

So you’re in the mood for a good game and good food to match? Consider watching the game with a couple of friends at a sporting restaurant. Enjoy excellent food and more often than not the party only comes alive after the game so there will be plenty to keep you from returning home.

A few places you can consider:

The Ridge Pub & Lounge: 4299 Knoppiesdoring St, Johannesburg, 2100
Paddy’s: Bram Fischer Dr, Johannesburg
Champions Sports Bar: 151 Main Reef Rd, Krugersdorp, 1739
Bells Inn Sports Bar: Cnr. Duiker & Gazelle STRS Kibler Park Johannesburg
GREEN & GOLD: Shops 21 & 22, Vlakhaas Ave, Roodepoort, 1709
Go to Boktown
Boktown is the Official Supporters Village of the Springboks where fans can gather and watch the game on a big screen and enjoy a day with the family. Places such as Montecasino, V&A Waterfront and the Barnyard Theatre have hosted Boktown events.
Go to a bring & braai
In today’s economic times it’s each man for its own thus a bring & braai is both fun and soft on the budget. Purchase your meat and a drink, go on over to a friend’s house and enjoy the rugby with good food and good company.
Sneak a peek at the screens in a restaurant
Perhaps your wife isn’t too excited about rugby and would rather spend a romantic evening out with you. Take her to a romantic restaurant, engage in serious conversation, nod your head at appropriate times and every now and again sneak a peek at one of the screens which usually plays rugby matches. Just make sure you are seated in a way as to get the best view of the screen and suppress your cries of joys.
On your phone or tablet while riding on a Citiliner bus
Perhaps the best way to enjoy the game is seated comfortably on a Citiliner bus watching the game on your phone or tablet while the driver gets you to where you need to be. Book your tickets with us online  and enjoy an effortless and safe journey with us.
