JOHANNESBURG, South Africa – xx October 2017 Like the great Nelson Mandela,
Nando’s understands the unifying power of sport. As a South African brand who advocates for bringing people together, Nando’s has partnered with SA Rugby and the Cape Town Sevens on 9 & 10 December 2017, to bring its PERi-PERi to an already spicy event.
“Apart from our delicious PERi-PERi chicken, nothing gets South Africans as fired up as
sport. We are known as a proud and great sporting nation, and with the likes of the
Springboks, Bafana Bafana and the Proteas, sport has the power to reach across culture
and background, allowing all South Africans to celebrate in one commonality. This is why it was so important for us to be involved in the South African leg of this prestigious
tournament,” explains Mike Cathie, CEO of Nando’s South Africa.

While Nando’s is committed to bringing family together, usually with the help of their PERi-PERi chicken, they also believe in keeping things spicy, in all matters of life. The Cape Town Sevens Rugby Tournament not only offers a unique brand of South African fun andentertainment, but was named the Best Live Sporting Experience by the Discovery Sport Industry Awards for 2016.
The tournament will see 16 of the best Sevens rugby teams in the world, battle it out for the ultimate prize, including New Zealand, Australia, Fiji and the United States, to name but a few. The 2017/2018 tournament kicks off in Dubai in the first week of December 2017 and concludes in June 2018.
“Sport holds a special place in the hearts of all South Africans, and has been the instrument through which we have been able to surpass our individual differences. We are honoured to be part of a tournament that continues to fire up true unity in South Africa,” concludes Cathie.
