We welcome the Cabinet’s support of bringing the Rugby World Cup tournament back to SA in 2023. The Cabinet has approved guarantees to the value of R2.7bn that were required from World Rugby as a hosting prerequisite.

The tournament will help stimulate the economy by supporting government priorities, especially as it relates to preferential procurement and adherence to the sport transformation charter and the sharing of the profits that are derived. The event will further boost our tourism and hospitality sector.

Woza 2023. Forward with sports that unify South Africans!

Tsepo Mhlongo, MPDA sports and recreation spokesman
