SA Rugby and South African Bank ABSA have joined forces to stage the popular rugby fan park, Boktown, during the 2007 international rugby season.

 

The concept promises to be a special place where Springbok fans will be able to demonstrate their support for the national team in a unique atmosphere.

On Saturday rugby fans will be treated to a real feast of entertainment when the official opening of Boktown takes place at Vodacom Park in Bloemfontein, where South Africa and England will clash in the first of two Vodacom Tests.

The popular fan park concept was first tried in Perth during the 2003 Rugby World Cup tournament as a fan base for Springbok supporters.

Last year SA Rugby introduced it to local fans in Johannesburg and Durban during the end of year tour of the Springboks to Ireland and England.

The positive response by fans prompted SA Rugby to expand the concept in 2007, especially with the Rugby World Cup tournament in mind.
