CAPE TOWN – The 2019 edition of the Cape Town Sevens will be extended to a three-day event, while the Springbok Sevens Women’s side will also join in on the action, which kicks off on December 13.
After four successful years hosting the South African leg of the World Sevens Series, Cape Town will also host a women’s tournament later this year and become one of six dual tournament hosts alongside Dubai, Hamilton, Sydney, Hong Kong and Paris.
SA Rugby chief executive Jurie Roux said they’re looking to build on the success of the last four seasons in the revamped event.
“We are extremely excited about the addition of the women’s event,” Roux said.
“Over the last four years, the Cape Town Sevens has delivered a world-class event for spectators and players alike, and we are working very hard to ensure the same high standards and expectations are met this year.”
