Wallabies to take on the Reigning World Champions South Africa at Suncorp Stadium!
Rugby Australia has today confirmed two blockbuster homes fixtures against the top two nations in the World Rugby rankings, as part of the 2021 eToro Rugby Championship.
The Bledisloe Cup will return to Perth this year with the Wallabies to square off against the All Blacks on Saturday 21 August. The blockbuster Test, secured for Perth by Tourism WA, will be the first time the Wallabies have played at Optus Stadium since their memorable Bledisloe Cup fixture in 2019.
Then, on Saturday 18 September, reigning world champions South Africa will clash with Dave Rennie’s side at Suncorp Stadium in Brisbane thanks to event partners Tourism and Events Queensland. It will be the Springboks first visit to Australia in more than three years, when the Wallabies snuck home 23-18 in a thriller at the same venue in 2018.
In Perth, Australia will be aiming to replicate that stunning night in 2019, where the points-scoring and crowd records were broken in the Wallabies’ 47-26 victory over New Zealand, in what was also the first Bledisloe Cup Test ever played in the West. The 2019 fixture also saw close to 7,400 visitors travel to Perth for the historic event and pour more than $12.5 million into the WA economy through visitor spend.
The two fixtures form part of the eToro Rugby Championship schedule announced by SANZAAR, with the tournament to be played across Australia, New Zealand and South Africa.
The Wallabies will open their eToro Rugby Championship campaign with home-and-away Tests against New Zealand before four straight home Tests against South Africa and Argentina respectively.
Fixture locations and kick-off times for the remaining Tests during the eToro Rugby Championship will be confirmed in the near future.
Hospitality packages are on sale now. Private suites, corporate boxes and functions are available for fans who want to enhance their Test match experience. Information on hospitality packages is available here.
General Public Tickets on sale soon.
