WP Rugby President, Thelo Wakefield, made it clear that any suggestion that Newlands has been sold is false.
"WPRFU has not sold Newlands for the rumoured amount, or for that matter any of the union’s properties.
"The previously stated position with respect to properties owned by the union remains unchanged," he said.
Wakefield confirmed in June that in future, the union would be using Cape Town Stadium to host matches.
Wakefield told Netwerk24 that fans will get an overall better experience at the Cape Town Stadium on match-days.
“(That) is now very important. At the Cape Town Stadium you have the Waterfront and Sea Point. There’s also ample parking in an around the stadium.”
He added that the decision to move would be a business one.
