WPRU set to bid Newlands goodbye
- 21 Oct 2017
The Cape Town Stadium is set to become the new home of the Western Province Rugby Union.
Although an official agreement is yet to be signed, WPRFU president Thelo Wakefield told Netwerk24 that it was a 'business decision' that is set to be finalised in the near future.
Wakefield could not confirm if the move will be made as early as 2019, with the Stormers and Western Province still set to play at Newlands next year, but the change in venue was said to be an inevitable one.
'I know there are emotions involved, but in the end that does not pay the bills. It is inevitable that we move ... If our vision is to be the leading union in the world, we must also have world-class facilities.'
