Springbok sponsors MTN have thrown their weight behind Springbok supporters across the country by becoming title sponsors of the ever-popular Boktowns.
Apart from screening Springbok Tests in a unique fan park environment, there will be opportunities to meet former players, giveaways and prizes, live entertainment, activities for the kids with Bokkie, and competitions for the best-dressed Bok fans. Springbok merchandise will also be on sale.
MTN Boktown venues, hosted by Tsogo Sun, will be at Montecasino (Johannesburg), Silverstar Casino (Krugersdorp), Goldfields Casino (Welkom) and Garden Route Casino (Mossel Bay) – with two new venues at Northwood Crusaders in Durban and the Barnyard Willowbridge in Cape Town.
Mapula Bodibe‚ Executive for Consumer Business at MTN said: “The Springbok team remains an important national asset that many of us can identify with‚ and MTN Boktown is another way of connecting the nation to their passion – the Springboks.
“We are pleased to give our customers a platform that contributes to the growth of our national team and we urge our customers and rugby fans to continue supporting Bok Fridays by wearing their Springbok jerseys on Fridays from the Castle Lager Incoming Series up to the 2019 Rugby World Cup, and get to MTN Boktown on Test match days.”
