Events In SA: Sports and Expos August 2019


From rugby to motoring we’ve got you covered with all the hip and happening expos and sports events going on across South Arica in August.


Springboks VS Argentina

17 August | Pretoria

South Africa’s men’s national rugby union team plays only two home Test matches this year, with the annual Rugby Championship cut short by the small matter of the IRB Rugby World Cup.

This match at Loftus Stadium is the second, and it is a rare chance to see the Boks in action before the big event.
