Capetonian David Dugmore has sponsored three All Blacks versus Springboks game tickets to budding rugby stars after he was apparently ripped off by online ticketing site Viagogo.
Dugmore says he paid an inflated price of R14 000 for the three tickets that were advertised as costing R850 each on the platform.
The Muizenberg man has opted to do something good with the tickets following the unpleasant experience online.
The New Zealand side will be playing against South Africa at Newlands Stadium for the first time in almost 20 years on Saturday.
The seats will be given to three upcoming players from Connect Rugby Academy in Khayelitsha.
I'm going to send the three boys to the game as a surprise and send them to the rugby as a way of rewarding their achievements.— Murray Ingram, founder of Connect Rugby Academy
Connect Rugby Academy founder explains that the young boys from Makhaza have never been exposed to such a major-scale game.
Connect Academy gives young talented athletes access to quality resources, conditioning and skills training.
The goal is to provide another feeder to top flight rugby structures and in so doing drive a transformation agenda.
Take a listen to the unfortunate story with a silver lining:
