JOHANNESBURG: Cricket South Africa (CSA) has noted the confusion concerning the allocation of hospitality tickets for the South Africa and India series.

Consequently and noting the need to clarify this situation, CSA wishes to emphasise that the decision not to sell tickets for the series was due to the necessity not to compromise the bio-secure environment the teams are playing under. However, CSA is still contractually obligated to issue hospitality tickets to its commercial partners and guests travelling with Team-India.

Therefore, attendance of matches by commercial partners is a contractual commercial deliverable, in pursuance of partner obligations. No hospitality tickets are being sold nor available for sale.

CSA regrets that cricket fans are presently not able to attend matches, owing to the restrictions that have been occasioned by the COVID-19 pandemic and very specific conditions of a bio-secure environment.  CSA is hopeful that soon fans will be able to attend live matches and enjoy their sport of choice.

CSA further thanks the public for its understanding and for supporting the national team.
