In a statement issued on Friday, the City of Cape Town said in conjunction with the South African #RugbyUnion (SARU), it had been “working hard over the last week to put together a celebration to honour the team as well as the millions of fans who have been cheering for them during the tournament”.

The Springbok trophy tour reached Zwide, the home town of Springbok Siya Kolisi, on Sunday afternoon. The World Cup-winning captain started from humble beginnings in the Zwide community.

“We are ready to welcome them to Cape Town for a gees-filled victory parade and I want to call on all of Cape Town to come out and show their support for our Bokke,” said executive mayor Dan Plato.

“We want to show our gratitude to them for bringing home the cup and making all of South Africa so proud of them. We are also thrilled that, as a cherry on top, Cape Town will be the home of the Webb Ellis Cup for the next four years.”

The City said the victory parade will kick off with a mini concert at City Hall and Grand Parade at 11:00.

After the concert, the team will take the Webb Ellis Cup on a tour of the CBD, Langa, Belhar and Elsies River.

Temporary road closures are as follows:
