Celebrate rugby at the annual "For the Love of the Game Banquet" - 5 August 2014

Join the Springbok squad, recipients and friends of the Fund in a celebration of rugby and its heroes!

A night of world-class entertainment, knowledgeable rugby conversation and the opportunity to meet and greet some of SA’s top corporates. All in aid of a Fund which supports rugby players in SA who have suffered catastrophic injuries, resulting in them being permanently dependent on wheelchairs.

The theme of this year’s event is a celebration - both of rugby and its heroes. A hero is admired for his courage and outstanding achievements. Whether current or past, our Springbok heroes remain immortalised by what they have done for the sport. This year, the Players’ Fund banquet will celebrate these heroes, the camaraderie, the friendships and the bonds forged in and around the game that remains so close to the hearts of many South Africans. We’ll hear from past and current Springbok heroes as they give us the inside scoop of the tour-bus banter, the on-field chirps and find out what the sport means to those who have dedicated their lives to it.    

On Tuesday 5 August 2014 the full Springbok squad and their management team will be at Montecasinο – backing the Players’ Fund which has been supporting victims of serious head, neck and spinal cord injuries for 34 years. The Fund was founded in 1980 by its current Chairman and past Springbok player and team manager - Morné du Plessis and his fellow Western Province team mates. Since its inception, the Fund has become a household name and this annual event has developed into a highlight of the rugby social calendar. If you support the Springboks, join them as they support the Fund and the fallen players of the game.

Entertainment on the night will include live performances from The Muses – a beautiful all-girl electrical string quartet that has been taking South Africa by storm as they expertly fuse classical instruments with contemporary music. They will be joined on stage by Swing City - a modern day swing-music trio made up of Nathan Ro, Graeme Watkins and Loyiso Bala. Live interviews with past and current Springbok players and must-hear key note speakers will top off an evening you won’t forget.

If you can’t be there on the night you can catch all the action on SuperSport 1 between 20h00-22h00 on Tuesday 5 August as the live show will stream from the ballroom, or follow @playersfundsa to make sure you don’t miss a thing!
