Park and Ride Service Available for Loftus Versfeld for the First Time
27 September 2012

Those who are planning to go to the Springbok vs Wallabies Rugby Championship test at Loftus Versfeld on 29 September 2012 can take advantage of the Park and Ride service being offered by Park and Ride SA for this first time at this stadium.

Park and Ride has been extended to Loftus Versfeld for the Springbok vs Wallabies Rugby Championship test on 29 September 2012. The service operates between large shopping centres and the stadium. Tickets for Park & Ride can be bought online through TicketPros as part of the booking for the match. Sports fans select the shopping centre that’s most convenient for them and the Park & Ride ticket includes a drink at one of the partner restaurants.

Park & Ride buses take fans to the stadium entrance from where they are guided into the stadium by security personnel. These security guards also guide them back after the match and take care of any disorientated passengers.

The Park & Ride service ensures that sports fans avoid traffic and parking difficulties and it keeps inebriated sports fans off the roads. The benefits of the service are widespread and ensure that the general public have less traffic congestion and greater safety while attending sports matches. The cost is also competitive with paying for parking close to the match – for example Park & Ride to Loftus costs R140 from Johannesburg and R120 from Pretoria. Shopping centres used as pick up points include Menlyn Park, Centurion Mall, Cresta Shopping Centre, EastRand Mall, Clearwater Mall and Cedar Square.

To quote the Loftus announcement for the Springbok match on 29th September, “Park and Ride services will be available from various points to aid in traffic congestion, frustration regarding parking and most importantly to contribute to a hassle free experience for the whole family.”

Issued by Jan Schoeman on behalf of Park & Ride SA.

Risin' up, back on the street
Did my time, took my chances
Went the distance now I'm back on my feet
Just a man and his will to survive

So many times it happens too fast
You trade your passion for glory
Don't lose your grip on the dreams of the past
You must fight just to keep them alive

It's the eye of the tiger, it's the thrill of the fight
Risin' up to the challenge of our rival
And the last known survivor stalks his prey in the night
And he's watchin' us all with the eye of the tiger

Face to face, out in the heat
Hangin' tough, stayin' hungry
They stack the odds, still we take to the street
For the kill with the skill to survive

It's the eye of the tiger, it's the thrill of the fight
Risin' up to the challenge of our rival
And the last known survivor stalks his prey in the night
And he's watchin' us all with the eye of the tiger

Risin' up, straight to the top
Had the guts, got the glory
Went the distance now I'm not gonna stop
Just a man and his will to survive

It's the eye of the tiger, it's the thrill of the fight
Risin' up to the challenge of our rival
And the last known survivor stalks his prey in the night
And he's watchin' us all with the eye of the tiger

The eye of the tiger
The eye of the tiger
The eye of the tiger
The eye of the tiger

Eye of the Tiger - Survior

Eye of the Tiger" was written for the movie Rocky III at the request of Sylvester Stallone after Queen had denied him usage rights to "Another One Bites the Dust." This means "Eye of the Tiger" was designed specifically, from start to finish, to function as the inspirational fight montage music in what film scholars widely regard as the most badass boxing movie ever. As a consequence of this, it has been universally appropriated as the definitive anthem of the triumphant underdog. Its opening chords have entered the cultural subconscious as the theme music for facing impossible odds. When anything insurmountable occurs, from massive corporate takeovers to pie-eating contests, "Eye of the Tiger" may be faintly heard, wafting distantly in the wind. If life is Goliath, "Eye of the Tiger" is its David.
