“Sold-Out Stands” Rugby Fans Shocked By Madagascar Crowd at Rugby Africa Women’s Cup

Rugby fans have shared their support on social media, to the amazing crowds witnessed at the 2023 Rugby Africa Women’s Cup. The amazing images have gone viral on social media, with fans and reporters calling for an increased push for rugby on the African continent.

The photos that have garnered the most attention, come from the match between Madagascar and Cameroon Women’s teams. The match is said to have taken place during the middle of the week, and within working hours, yet presents a sell-out crowd in attendance.

The reported fans in attendance is said to have been nearing 15,000, which demonstrates the progressive growth of Women’s rugby across the globe. The upwards trajectory was presented in the latest 2023 TikTok Women’s Six Nations, as England and France played in front of 58,498 fans at Twickenham Stadium, which broke the previous record of 42,579.

The previous attendance record was set last year at New Zealand’s Eden Park, when the Black Ferns took on England in the Rugby World Cup Final.
