Soak up the rugby season “gees” at Boktown

Soak up the rugby season “gees” at Boktown

Not everyone can get to the stadium to watch the Springboks, but Boktown is a place where the most passionate South African supporters congregate for a “uniquely Springbok Supporters experience”. Rugby is not unlike a religion to many in South Africa and Boktown is “the church” at which the wearers of Green and Gold go to worship their rugby heroes.

You will find many of your Springbok and South African legends at Boktown, supporting the current generation of Springboks. You will get to chat to them and mingle, but mostly you’ll get to party, as only Springbok supporters know how.

Boktown, presented by the official Springbok Supporters’ Club, creates a unique experience that goes beyond the 80 minutes of on-field action. This rugby place-of-worship gives South African rugby lovers the best alternative to being at the game. Fans watch the test live on the big screens but the entertainment starts long before the first whistle and continues long after the final whistle.

It’s a Springbok rugby supporters’ dream experience that also speaks to the entire family. There’s interactive fun for the kids, drink specials, food, bars, DJ’s, dancing, sponsor giveaways and competitions.

There is always a visit from Bokkie – the official Springbok mascot – and part of the experience is being able to formally engage with select South African Rugby Legends in a structured “Q&A” session before and after the game.

The Springbok Supporters’ Club will host Boktown for the Castle Lager Rugby Championships for the first time ever at the River Club Slug and Lettuce in Cape Town. Boktown opens two hours before kick-off, so get there early to secure your seat and enjoy the “gees” (spirit) and action with your friends, family and neighbours.
