The Rugby World Cup final between the Springboks and England will be broadcast by the SABC after the national broadcaster reached a deal with SuperSport.

World Rugby's showpiece finale takes place at the International Stadium in Yokohama on Saturday, 2 November at 11h00 (SA time) and will be shown on SABC 2.

"The SABC is excited to be able to bring this historic game to the nation, as the public broadcaster recognises the role it plays in social cohesion, nation building and promoting sports of national interest,” said SABC Group Chief Executive Officer Madoda Mxakwe. “We remain committed to entering into commercially viable agreements and we support and wish the Springboks well as they pursue a place in history.”

The third-place play-off match between the All Blacks and Wales will also be broadcast on SABC 2 on Friday, 1 November at 11h00.
