The ANC applauds France for winning the bid to host 2023 Rugby World Cup tournament

S Ralegoma

The ANC and the South African citizens applauds the South African bid team for having done such a good job in bidding to host the 2023 Rugby World Cup tournament. We are however, a bit disappointed, after World Rugby recommended South Africa as the preferred country to host the tournament.

Nevertheless, the ANC congratulates France for winning the bid to host the 2023 Rugby World Cup tournament, and wishes France much success. The ANC also wants to take this opportunity to thank the millions of South African fans who supported and stood behind this bid and most of all, the South African Rugby Union bid team, for the job well done. The ANC believes that this is not the end of the road, the country can still bid for hosting other future Rugby world tournaments, and South Africans should not despair.

I thank you
