In a statement issued on Friday, the City of Cape Town said in conjunction with the South African Rugby Union (SARU), it had been "working hard over the last week to put together a celebration to honour the team as well as the millions of fans who have been cheering for them during the tournament".   

"We are ready to welcome them to Cape Town for a gees-filled victory parade and I want to call on all of Cape Town to come out and show their support for our Bokke," said executive mayor Dan Plato.

"We want to show our gratitude to them for bringing home the cup and making all of South Africa so proud of them. We are also thrilled that, as a cherry on top, Cape Town will be the home of the Webb Ellis Cup for the next four years."
