“As the world’s leading festival and event destination, we are ready to, once again, put on a world-class showpiece, which will be a resounding welcome back for live sports.

“The efforts by the City of Cape Town, City Promotion Agencies, and the provincial Department of Economic Development and Tourism has, over the last two years, put the tourism and hospitality industry on the road to recovery.”

The event will be hosted in partnership with the South African Rugby Union (Saru).
