Johannesburg - The Springboks will have Madiba “in their hearts and on their sleeves” on Saturday as they plan to honour the former State President in an unique way.
According to the supersport.com website, the image of former State President Nelson Mandela will get a special place as both the Springboks and Argentina will have it emblazoned on their match day jerseys for the first time in history.
While the Boks have played once before with Madiba’s charity 46664 number on their sleeves, it has been confirmed that this will be a picture of Mandela on the jersey, although officials are mum on just which picture will be used.
“The match against the Pumas is of huge importance for the Boks because the team wants to kick off The Rugby Championship on a good note in front of our passionate fans,” said Habana.
All tickets offer reserved seating and are available in the following price categories: R220, R350, R450 and R550.
