SABC will broadcast the Rugby World Cup Final, South Africa VS England.
Following the agreement between SABC and DStv, the SABC will play the world cup rugby final match between South Africa and England.
The SABC was reportedly unable to broadcast any of the Rugby World Cup 2019 matches due to financial constraints that hindered the channel to meet the DStv’s demands.
The call to allow the SABC to broadcast the final match was made by many politicians including Panyaza Lisufi, the MEC of education in Gauteng.
For the sake of all South Africans, for today and the final, can @DStv please provide the @SPORTATSABC the rights to broadcast the #RSAvWAL so that the country not the privileged few can follow the @Springboks. Ka kopo hle 👏🏿 @robertmarawa @NathiMthethwaSA @Stellarated— Panyaza Lesufi (@Lesufi) October 27, 2019
SABC will broadcast Rugby World Cup between England and Springboks on Saturday at 11:00 AM, as well as the third-place play-off on Friday at SABC2.
The South African side that fought hard to secure the spot on finals against Wales will be looking to repeat the victory that landed them a World Cup in 2007 in France against England when they play the same team this Saturday.
