The official Springbok Supporters’ Club is excited to announce the dates and venues for the Castle Lager Rugby Championship editions of MTN Boktown.

Not everyone can get to the stadium to watch the Springboks, but MTN Boktown is a place where the most passionate South African supporters congregate for a uniquely Springbok supporters’ experience. It has often been said that rugby is a religion in South Africa and MTN Boktown is the church at which the wearers of green and gold go to worship their rugby heroes.

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

MTN Boktown, brought to you by the official Springbok Supporters’ Club, creates a unique experience that goes beyond the 80 minutes of on-field action and gives South African rugby lovers the best alternative to being at the game. Fans watch the test live on the big screen but the entertainment starts long before the first whistle and continues long after the final whistle with live entertainment, prizes and giveaways, best dressed fan competition and activities for the kids.

It’s a Springbok rugby supporters’ dream experience that also speaks to the entire family. Expect an engaging visit from Bokkie – the official Springbok mascot – and get a chance to formally engage with select South African Rugby Legends through a structured ‘Q&A’ session before and after the game.

MTN Boktown will take place on September 29, for the South Africa vs Australia test in Port Elizabeth, and on October 6, for the South Africa vs New Zealand test in Pretoria.

Find your nearest MTN Boktown venue, hosted by Tsogo Sun: Montecasino (Johannesburg), Silverstar Casino (Krugersdorp), Goldfields Casino (Welkom) and Garden Route Casino (Mossel Bay) – as well as MTN Boktown venues at Northwood Crusaders in Durban North and Barnyard Willowbridge in Tygervalley, Cape Town.

MTN Boktown opens two hours before kick-off, so get there early to secure your seat and enjoy the gees and action with your friends, family and neighbours. Tickets available at the venue or on online at
