The annual Sasfin Cape Town Cricket Sixes, Africa’s biggest sixes tournament, will once again take place from February 14 to 16 2020. The festival, now in its 5th year has more than doubled in size going from 40 teams in 2016 to over 100 teams booked for 2020. Cape Town’s most loved sporting and lifestyle festival continues to gain in popularity and this year’s is certainly not to be missed. This year the festival will be held for the first time at the iconic Western Province Cricket Club in Rondebosch, taking the sport back to its roots in the Southern Suburbs. The venue is situated on the doorstep of Newlands Cricket Stadium and boasts large open fields, an entertainment area and bar, perfect for a weekend of fun filled activities and entertainment.

The festival traditionally focused on cricket as its core sport with the addition of the popular six-a-side soccer leagues in 2017 and this year the founders are excited to announce that they will be adding touch and tag rugby leagues for 2020. Sixes incorporates men’s, women’s and junior leagues, welcoming players across all skills.

Players from all over the world enter their teams, some as far away as Dubai and Qatar, making the Sasfin Cape Town Cricket Sixes a prominent sporting event on the international calendar.

Teams that would like to participate in the six-a-side soccer and touch rugby will be able to play in divisions according to their own skill level too.

On offer throughout the whole weekend will be a selection of artisanal food stands and local pop-up restaurants. The global food village aims to have a dish from each of the countries participating in the matches. After grabbing a bite, if you’re feeling energetic enough you can take on the Southern Comfort cycle challenge where you cycle to mix your own zingy margarita!
