Designed to test the sporting knowledge of die-hard South African sports fans, the Builders Sports Quiz was launched successfully in Durban at the end of July. The event drew some of sport’s brightest stars, including former Springbok captain John Smit, former Bafana Bafana captain Neil Tovey and a host of Sharks rugby players and Dolphins cricketers (who were crowned champions on the night).

At the Cape Town event, the Stormers and Cape Cobras were well-represented in front of a 300-strong crowd, with the guys from emerging victorious on the night.
Last year’s event in Johannesburg was attended by Gordon Igesund and strong teams from the Lions and Bafana Bafana - and this year’s event promises to be no different as enthusiastic fans pit their wits against SA sport’s greatest stars, under the watchful eye of celebrity MC Dan Nicholl.
Prosport International Commercial Manager David Brooke can’t wait to see Joburg’s sports fans testing their mettle at the quiz.

“Both Durban and Cape Town came out in force to test their sports knowledge with colleagues and mates, we’re now bringing the series to Johannesburg where we expect an extremely competitive - but fun - evening at Emperors Palace”, he says.
Nigel Atherton, Emperors Palace General Manager, says the resort can’t wait to host a competitive evening with a mix of serious fans and stars from SA’s sporting firmament.

“The Theatre of Marcellus will reverberate with passion on October 2 at the Builders Sports Quiz – and we’re excited to see sports fans and their heroes mixing it up in the quest for some great prizes,” he says.
