New Zealand are set to return to Cape Town for the first time in over five years when the Springboks host the All Blacks in two Rugby Championship tests in 2024.
Cape Town is one of five venues confirmed by Sunday newspaper Rapport to be hosting Rassie Erasmus’ world champion Springboks next year.
According to the report, the Springboks will take on their arch-nemesis in two home Tests in the 2024 Rugby Championship, with Cape Town Stadium set to host the All Blacks for the first time.
The All Blacks have a superb record in the Mother City, winning four out of five games at the old Newlands Stadium. Their only loss came in a 22-16 defeat to the Springboks in 2005.
It will be the first time that the Springboks face the All Blacks in Cape Town since the 2017 Rugby Championship clash, which New Zealand won 25-24.
Pretoria, Durban, Johannesburg and Mbombela are the other cities that will be hosting Bok Tests in 2024.
Loftus Versfeld and Kings Park will host the two July Tests against Ireland, with Ellis Park hosting the first Test between South Africa and New Zealand.
The Springboks will take on Argentina in Mbomela in their final home Test of the year.
