After the concert, the team will take the Webb Ellis Cup on a tour of the CBD, Langa, Belhar and Elsies River.

To commemorate the incredible victory by the Springboks in Japan, FlySafair, the trusted domestic carrier of the Springboks, has updated the branding on one of its Boeing aircrafts for the commemorative Springboks Trophy Tour 2019.

The green and gold aircraft has transported our heroes across South Africa along with the Webb Ellis Cup that has been shown to millions of passionate South Africans along the way.

The trophy travels inside the aircraft cabin, together with the Springboks, where it is safely stowed for take-off and landing.

“We are extremely proud of the Springboks and the sponsorship of our team. Sport has the ability to connect people from all walks of life, regardless of background or circumstances. It is a privilege to be able to take the team across our broad route network to share their victory with the people of South Africa,” says Kirby Gordon, Head of Sales and Distribution at FlySafair.

FlySafair has put together a special charter tour for the team, and the flights will be operated under flight number FA3212, to echo the winning score.
