Test venues for 2018 England Tour confirmed
December 01, 2017
The Springboks will host England in three Tests in Johannesburg, Bloemfontein and Cape Town during the Castle Lager Incoming Series next June.

It will be England’s first visit to South Africa in six years and SA Rugby confirmed on Friday that the three Tests will be played at Emirates Airline Park on 9 June, the Toyota Stadium a week later on Youth Day, before the tour will culminate with the third Test at DHL Newlands on 23 June.

England last visited these shores in 2012 when the Springboks won the first two of the three Tests, while the final encounter ended in a draw.

“Under Eddie Jones the English have re-established themselves as one of the powerhouses of World Rugby – they have only lost one Test in the last two seasons,” said SA Rugby CEO Jurie Roux.

“Our history against England goes back more than a century and we are looking forward to welcoming them back to South Africa next year in what promises to be a tough tour.

“In 2012, they played in Johannesburg, but it’s been 10 years since they last visited Bloemfontein, while the Test in Cape Town will be England’s first visit to the Mother City since 1998.”

England have not won a Test in South Africa since the two teams clashed in Bloemfontein in 2000. Out of the 13 previous Tests between the Springboks and England in South Africa, the visitors have won three, while one ended in a draw.

Castle Lager Incoming Series 2018 – South Africa v England:
9 June: Emirates Airline Park, Johannesburg
16 June: Toyota Stadium, Bloemfontein
23 June: DHL Newlands, Cape Town
Kick-off times will be confirmed in due course.
