Stormers Secure Home Final and Chance to Defend URC Title

by InnsCape

The Stormers’ path to defending their United Rugby Championship (URC) title has been solidified as they clinched a second consecutive home final following their impressive victory over Connacht, coupled with Munster’s surprising triumph over Leinster in the semi-finals.

As the highest-ranked team in the Grand Final, the Stormers will proudly host the crucial match at Cape Town’s DHL Stadium on Saturday, May 27, kicking off at 18:30. This means that teams and fans alike will have a two-week interval to prepare, ensuring they secure their seats for what promises to be a sell-out crowd.

The eagerly awaited Stormers tickets for the Grand Final will be available for purchase exclusively from Ticketpro starting at 10:00 on Thursday. The ticket prices range from R80 for Category D seats to R375 for Category A seats. Season ticket holders, as a token of appreciation for their loyalty, will have their season tickets automatically validated for this match, requiring no additional action.

To ensure smooth entry, it is important to note that only tickets acquired through Ticketpro will be valid. Tickets obtained from Viagogo or any other third-party platforms will not grant access to the event.

The Stormers’ emphatic 43-25 victory over Connacht in the first semi-final at DHL Stadium secured their place in the Grand Final. Shortly thereafter, Munster delivered a dramatic blow to their arch-rivals Leinster with a late drop goal, resulting in a narrow 16-15 win at Dublin’s Aviva Stadium. This unexpected outcome granted the Stormers the privilege of hosting the final in front of their fervent home crowd.

Leinster, who topped the standings with an impressive record of 16 wins and one draw from their 18 league matches, were left disappointed by their semi-final exit for the second consecutive time, once again falling short by a single point in front of their loyal supporters.

Munster, buoyed by their recent victory in Cape Town, where they became only the second team to conquer the reigning 2022 champions at their home ground, will travel to South Africa’s Mother City with confidence. The stage is set for an exhilarating clash, showcasing the best of both hemispheres, as the Stormers strive to defend their URC title against a determined Munster side.
