Springbok Trophy Tour - East London

As confirmed the 2019 Rugby World Cup Champions, the Springboks, will be touching down on Buffalo City shores on Saturday to celebrate their victory of being the 2019 Rugby World Cup Champions.

Buffalo City will be welcoming the heroes when they bring the Webb Ellis Cup to our city on Saturday, 09 November 2019, with the world cup winners traveling in the City via various streets and routes as outlined below.

The first stop will be at the East London City Hall at 09h00 am where the BCM Executive Mayor together and the Eastern Cape MEC for Sports will welcome Bok head coach Rassie Erasmus, Captain Siya Kolisi and the team. See below the official route that the team will take during their parade.

To celebrate and be part of the victor tour, we encourage all residents and sports clubs to come out in numbers and show the Boks love by wearing their green and gold jerseys and dedicate their morning activities to the world champions.

some confusion with Mayfair Avenue in Cambridge, but on map it shows they are coming down Amalinda Main Road.
What is the correct route?

Good Day Johan,

Thank you for your feedback. We have noted the confusion as well, and have since got in touch with BC Tourism. As soon as we receive any new info we will publish an update.


Best Regards,
The E.L.B.D Team

Why is Westbank not included in the tour?Suppose it start at the airport down Settlers Way to the City Hall.

Zimkitha 07-11-2019 11:31PM

Why are you excluding Mdantsane and KWT. Give reasons BCM include this areas Bull dogs teammate must be accommodated

Why are they not breaking their route somewhere like Hudson Primary fields or Stirling High fields making it easier for people to get signatures? They are breaking the routes in all the other towns at least twice we don't get the opportunity.
