Telecommunications company MTN has renewed its sponsorship of the Springboks for a further five years to 2025.
MTN has been the headline sponsor of the Springboks since 2017.
“We found it fitting to continue to back the Springboks after a very successful period during which they became the 2019 world champions‚ warming the hearts of our nation‚” said MTN Chief Consumer Officer Mapula Bodibe. “MTN has been a long-time supporter of South African sport and the renewal of our sponsorship of the Springboks further entrenches our position as an ardent supporter of SA’s sporting ambitions.”

“When we named MTN as our new headline sponsor four years ago‚ we realised that it represented a pivotal moment for SA Rugby and that welcoming a company of MTN’s size and reach was a significant moment for the sport,” said SA Rugby Chief Executive Jurie Roux. “They have been a wonderfully supportive partner during a time of regeneration for the Springboks and the wider South African rugby fraternity, and have stuck with us through the pandemic. We are excited to continue to have MTN by our side.”
