The Springbok Sevens and Springbok Women’s Sevens teams are in action on all three days and kick off their campaigns in Friday’s evening session.

The SA women meet France at 18:35 while the Blitzboks close day one with a match-up against the winners of a qualification match between Germany and Chile at 19:03. 

“We’ve been waiting a long time to host a World Cup and it’s now almost upon us,” said Jurie Roux, CEO of SA Rugby.

“The excitement is really building with all the teams arriving over the last few days and the stage really is set for an amazing event.

“We have been planning for a long time for the event and all the preparations are in place to show off South Africa and Cape Town at its best. There are still tickets available for all days – even Saturday and Sunday – and I’d urge all rugby fans to get along early to be party of a very special occasion.”
