WPRFU president Theo Wakefield has dispelled rumours circulating on social media that Newlands has been sold.
Former WP and Stormers captain Corné Krige tweeted earlier on Friday that he’d heard the stadium had been sold for R100-million.

However, in a statement on Friday night, Wakefield made it clear that any suggestion that the stadium has been sold is false.
‘The WPRFU has not sold Newlands for the rumoured amount, or for that matter any of the union’s properties.
‘The previously stated position with respect to properties owned by the union remains unchanged.’
