Cape Town - The South African rugby museum, based in Newlands in Cape Town, will close on Friday pending relocation. The collection of artefacts, jerseys, images, documents and books will go into storage until new premises can be found.

“The museum is overdue a revamp to make it more interactive, more relevant and more reflective of the diverse history of rugby among all communities in South Africa,” said Jurie Roux, chief executive officer of SARU.

“It has remained largely unchanged for more than a decade and suffers from being in a venue which has very little passing foot traffic - except on match days.

“We have some exciting ideas to make it more accessible and more relevant to South Africans but they will take some time to bring to life.”

Roux said that SARU was in the beginning stages of identifying permanent new premises for the museum, having had to vacate the current building. He said that timelines on the museum’s re-opening would be publicised in due course.
