South Africa’s Ambassador to the USA, Mninwa Johannes Mahlangu, together with the First Minister of Wales, Rt. Hon. Carwyn Jones AM, officially announced a rugby match between their national teams at Washington’s RFK Stadium on 2 June.

During the announcement, Ambassador Mahlangu highlighted that the Government of South Africa will be celebrating the life of our country’s first democratically elected President, Nelson Mandela during this year, the year in which he would have celebrated his 100th birthday. He said, “Madiba was a firm believer in the power of sports to be a unifying force and the ability it has to change lives. South Africa has experienced the unifying power of sports when President Mandela handed over the Webb Ellis trophy to the Springbok captain in 1995. The Springbok rugby team played a vital part in forging the Rainbow Nation and bringing pride and joy to every citizen.”
First Minister of Wales, Carwyn Jones noted, “It is fantastic to be here with the South African Ambassador to the US, Mninwa Johannes Mahlangu, to announce this exciting fixture between our two great countries. Wales and the Springboks have a huge global fan base and I am confident this clash of titans at Washington’s world famous RFK Stadium will help raise the profile of rugby in America. I, for one, can’t wait until June 2.”
