MTN Congratulates the Springboks: 2019 Rugby World Cup Champions

For immediate release

JOHANNESBURG, South Africa, 3rd NOVEMBER 2019, African Press Association (APA) – AS the proudest and primary sponsor of the Springboks, MTN cannot wait to see the Boks and the William Webb Ellis Cup back on South African soil.

“Two and a half years ago, the Boks were facing bleak times, but we knew our team had what it would take to fight back. Under the exceptional leadership of Coach Rassie Erasmus and the rest of the management team – they proved they are truly the best in the world,” said Godfrey Motsa, MTN SA CEO.

“Our partnership with the Springboks has been momentous. Every single MTN employee was given a Bok jersey and MTNers, across the country, embraced Bok Friday and every aspect of this sponsorship.”

This team, by representing us all, has united us all and we thank South African Rugby Union for this wonderful partnership. We could not be prouder,” Motsa said.
