Screen Shot 2016-02-24 at 9.35.22 AM23 February 2016 – This year’s Vodacom Super Rugby will not only offer more teams, more games and more tries but also more books and knowledge. For every try scored by a South African team Vodacom will donate R7 000 towards setting up e-libraries and donating books to schools in communities that need it most.

The 2016 competition that kicks off on Friday 26 February will be bigger and better than ever before with the expansion from 15 teams to 18 to include the Southern Kings, the Jaguares (Argentina), and the Sunwolves (Japan).

“Vodacom is excited about the expansion of the premier provincial rugby competition that will not only include two teams from Japan and Argentina but will also see the Southern Kings take their rightful place among the best franchises in South Africa,” said Mosidi Seretlo Brand Director Vodacom.

Vodacom will launch a number of innovative initiatives that will give supporters a front-row seat wherever they are in the world. Supporters’ access to everything Vodacom Super Rugby related will increase twofold as they will be able to follow all the action on the field and the news from the side-lines via the All Out Rugby App, powered by Vodacom, and the vodacomrugby.co.za portal. 

In addition Vodacom will once again use their Vodacom Super Rugby sponsorship for the greater good through the Tries for Books campaign.

For every try scored by a South African team, Vodacom will donate R7 000 towards setting up e-libraries and donating books to schools in communities that need it most.

Vodacom will aim to change the game through knowledge and will encourage rugby fans to donate books at stadiums around the country which will be distributed to schools in need. Players and fans can band together to help Vodacom give power to knowledge.

More Teams. More Games. More Tries. More Books. More Knowledge.
