Rugby World Cup Fan Parks in South Africa: Watch the Games with Us!

There’s nothing better than attending a rugby match live, we know. But if you don’t have air tickets to England to watch the action live, we have the next best thing. Watch the Rugby World Cup 2015 at one of our Fan Parks, and share the excitement with scores of other fans!

What’s better than having a jol with your mates while watching the Boks in their glory? How about you add a fully stocked bar and some great food, all in a sea of green and gold supporters? Whether you’re screaming for South Africa, or engaging in some competitive banter with your your Aussie, English or Kiwi friends, here’s where to watch Rugby World Cup in South Africa.

Rugby World Cup Fan Parks South Africa:

  • In Cape Town, we’ll be hosting three Fan Parks at GrandWest. Watch the rugga action live at the Alibama Sports Bar, Roxy Revue Bar, and Jackson Hall.
  • Sun City’s Trader’s Sports Bar and Old Bingo Lounge will both be hosting Rugby World Cup Fan Parks South Africa in style.
  • Carnival City will convert its top parking lot into a massive Fan Park, complete with screens and sound to bring you all the rugby action you’re craving.
  • In Durban, head to Krakatoa at Sibaya to support our boys in green and gold.
  • Watch the action live at Diamond Lil’s, at The Windmill Casino in Bloemfontein.
  • In Port Elizabeth, the Bravo Bar at The Boardwalk will also be hosting a Fan Park for Rugby World Cup 2015. 

What to expect when you watch the game at one of our Rugby World Cup Fan Parks, South Africa:

Back our boys from the comfort of one of our Rugby World Cup Fan Parks South Africa. Entrance is free, and there’ll be fully stocked bars, plenty of food to choose from, and a whole bunch of other supporters to rally with (or against, depending on who you’re supporting).

Don’t get us wrong, we’re all for the home-cut vibe of a braai, beer, and the Boks - on the average weekend. The Rugby World Cup, however, is a totally different story. It’s an experience where historically, we South Africans have come together in a crashing wave of community, national pride, and Ubuntu. For those of us who can’t make it across the pond, and frankly, would prefer to celebrate this momentous occasion in the spirit of ’95 under sunny skies, with our hardy southern kin, Sun International’s Rugby World Cup Fan Parks South Africa are the next best thing.

MVG bonus: If you’re a Most Valued Guest, your first drink is on us.
