Crous said aside from the Super Rugby promotion-relegation game, spectators would also be able to catch the First Division game between the EP Kings and the Boland Cavaliers.
This game will then be followed by the first of two matches against the Lions, which kicks off at 19.10.
The second match will be played in Johannesburg the next Saturday, August 3, the time is still to be confirmed.
"As for the Super Rugby playoffs, we are aware that it's do or die and our players are doing everything they can to prepare themselves for what is going to be a titanic clash. But we cannot do this alone."
"We need the people of the region to once again come out in their numbers and show their support, to stand up and be counted," he said.
Crous called on people to wear black next week Friday, as a way of showing their support for the Southern Kings.
Tickets are available through Computicket, as well as the Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium and Boardwalk Ticketing Offices.
