All 60 000 tickets to both games at the city's new 2010 FIFA World Cup™ stadium - a soccer match between Santos and Ajax Cape Town held on 23 January and a rugby match between two local teams on 6 February - sold out within days after becoming available.

The Cape Town Rugby Festival, the second game at the stadium, will feature a friendly between Boland Invitational XV, and the Stormers. Up to 40 000 spectators will not only be able to see top players such as Bryan Habana, Schalk Burger and Jaque Fourie in action, but also witness the first ever rugby match in the new stadium.

Cape Town Tens will also host a Tens festival-type match as the curtain-raiser. An SA Legends selection will play against an International Legends team, which will feature players such as Robbie Fleck and Bob Skinstad.

The Tens rugby festival will then continue at the nearby Hamilton's club.

Both games are being used as an opportunity for the operators, Sail Stadefrance, to test the stadium's readiness for the World Cup™. At least one more event will be held in the coming months, this time with a full 68 000 capacity crowd, which will also test other aspects of the City of Cape Town's preparations and readiness for the World Cup™.
