England Tour of South Africa - 1st Test at Centurion

We are excited to return to SuperSport Park, Centurion, for the First Test of South Africa v England 2019!

Our Centurion Test Match Tour will be complimented by our popular State of Play evening, a morning tour of Soweto and a magical Christmas Day in the South African sunshine!

As you can see from our carefully crafted itinerary, we have the first-hand experience to arrange a cricket tour that makes the most of your time here, as well as allowing that all-important down time for relaxation too!

Mr Richard Nurse, our longstanding Sports Tours Director (and native South African!) whom many of you will already know, will be accompanying you on this South Africa cricket tour as well as our celebrity Cricket hosts; on hand to assist in any way he can, both prior to and during your tour.

Our Centurion Test Match Celebrity Hosts

Accompanying you during this test match will be our three cricket heroes:

  • Jonathan Trott
  • John Lever and 
  • Derek Randall

Jonathan Trott says "I am delighted to join the team at ITC Sports Travel for this exciting cricket tour of South Africa! Of all the cricket tours, South Africa is one of the best, boasting a truly wonderful destination and world-class cricket. SA is a cricketing powerhouse both with bat and ball, so our England team will need to be playing at their best to keep the hosts at bay. Away from the cricket, this scenically beautiful country has an ideal climate, excellent restaurants and hospitable people."


The Test Matches

26-30 December 2019 - 1st Test in Centurion

16-20 January 2020 - 3rd Test in Port Elizabeth
24-28 January 2020 - 4th Test in Johannesburg

PRETORIA - With its pretty tree-lined streets and historic buildings, Pretoria has a genteel air about it.  The city, named after the Voortrekker leader, is home to the massive Voortrekker Monument, a tribute to the history of these brave men and women and their contribution to South Africa’s pioneering history. Archaeological masterpieces provide a fascinating look into the country’s past. Gorgeous purple flowers carpet the streets in blankets of colour and in spring the Jacaranda trees burst into bloom, giving Pretoria the nickname of “Jacaranda City”. The town’s funky music and sports festivals bring a light-hearted vibe to the city and the vibey Hatfield suburb is the place to go. Pretoria Train Station is famous for guests traveling on luxury rail and both the Rovos Rail and Blue Train depart from here, making the city an ideal stop-over.

This contemporary hotel offers a sleek experience located in the Melrose Arch precinct. There are numerous retail and leisure activities available, and the hotel makes a great base for exploring the city. For scrumptious African-inspired fare head to the hotel’s March restaurant, then after your meal, recline in the Library Bar with a cognac. Take a dip in the pool first thing, and then before heading out to sight-see enjoy a coffee at the colonial-style Veranda. The hotel is just a 25 minute drive from Supersport Park stadium so is perfect when watching England in South Africa.
