We are always trying to offer people technology that seamlessly fits into their lifestyle, and an event like the Tens enables us to do this,” says Justin Maier, ?Head of Marketing, Nokia South and East Africa.

Bob Skinstad adds: “Nokia is a huge global brand and for them to associate with us is a massive endorsement of the growing popularity of Tens rugby in South Africa. The Nokia Cape Town Tens is a unique sport and entertainment lifestyle event that offers some great experiences on and off the field, for players and spectators alike. Nokia’s involvement means we can now take the event experience to another level.”
