Cape Town - This weekend’s Sevens World Series event in Port Elizabeth will not be affected by load shedding, stadium organisers have assured.

Lourens Oberholzer from Access Management told the EWN website that the Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium has high power generators designed to ensure constant supply of electricity to the stadium in the event of any power outage.

Oberholzer also said the local municipality has assured them that the stadium will not be affected by load shedding this weekend.

The municipality has reportedly given assurances that it will run a gas turbine for the duration of the event to ensure that 100 percent power is given should an outage occur.

The event runs for two days - Saturday and Sunday.

The Blitzbokke will be eager to keep their good form in front of their home fans after winning the Dubai Sevens last weekend.

They are also the defending champions at the Nelson Mandela Bay Sevens.
