Rugby World Cup 2023 meetings in SA
A World Rugby delegation arrived in SA on Monday to begin two days of meetings with stakeholders involved with SA’s Rugby World Cup 2023 bid.
SA Rugby met World Rugby’s “applicant submission” deadline on September 1 2016 despite‚ at the time‚ not formally having national government’s backing to host the event.
SA Rugby needs the government to underwrite the associated costs of putting on the global showpiece‚ including World Rugby’s “fee” in the region of R2bn.
Basson said the EPG had delivered its report to Mbalula and the minister now had to review the data.
As of Monday‚ SA Rugby still did not have the formal backing of the government.
