World Rugby Chairman Sir Bill Beaumont added: “Cape Town has a strong track record of hosting world-class rugby sevens competitions and fans can look forward to a feast of entertainment over three action-packed days, while the teams will be looking forward to playing in front of a passionate and knowledgeable crowd.
We will continue to work closely with the SA Rugby Union and all other stakeholders to ensure the delivery of a safe and secure world-class event for players, teams and fans to enjoy.”
Jurie Roux, CEO of SA Rugby, said: “World Cups are unlike any other rugby tournament; for its duration the eyes of the rugby world will be on South Africa, as all roads lead to Cape Town.
“It’ll be bigger, bolder and brighter than anything we have put on before and will climax with the lifting of the Melrose Cup and the Women’s Rugby World Cup Sevens trophy on a do-or-die final day.”
