WP Rugby is traditionally symbolized by the Blue and White Hoops of its playing strip. Newlands Rugby Stadium, situated in the Southern Suburbs of Cape Town, South Africa, has a capacity of 48 000 and plays home to the proud Union.
Since the advent of professional rugby in South Africa, shortly after the 1995 Rugby World Cup, WP Rugby Football Union saw the need to establish a commercial arm to handle the demands of the professional game. In 1996, the commercial arm, WP Rugby (Pty) Ltd, was created to deal with the growing interest from the public, media, sponsors and players, and to maximize commercial opportunities.
WP Rugby Football Union, a non profit organization and major shareholder in WP Rugby (Pty) Ltd, continues to develop the game at amateur level, growing and nurturing rugby at school boy and club level, taking into account areas such as coaching, refereeing, skills development and transformation.
