The president of Rugby Africa, Khaled Babbou, is excited to begin the new season: “The Africa Cup 2020 is a completely revised system of competition to bring more value to our federations, the spectators and our partners in the long term. We are confident that the new format will help us forge new partnerships that will allow us to improve our offering every year. Our strategy for Rugby Africa is to get more countries involved into rugby, member unions’ players to gain more match experience, to raise up our teams to a standard of excellence and ultimately a pool of high-level African athletes that are recognized at an international level. Together with our main official partner APO Group and the project team from Moonsport Content & Entertainment we look forward to the evolution of the game and spectator experience of African rugby.”

Moonsport Managing Director, Trent Key expresses: “We are excited by the opportunity to showcase the vast rugby talent on the African continent to the world, through innovative broadcast means. They are great stories that are just waiting to be unearthed, and with Rugby Africa providing us with this opportunity, we cannot wait to hit the ground running and showcase what Africa has. Rugby Africa is very forward-thinking and understands current media trends, especially in the digital space, so we are looking forward to creating world-class content that is easily accessible.”

“We are excited to work with Rugby Africa in building a fan-focused digital ecosystem that is accessible to everyone. Rugby in Africa is a serious sport and we are looking forward to delivering a digital presence that reflects this”, says Moonsport’s Creative Producer, Simon Key.
