The Vodacom Durban July in association with the SABC are partners for the 2015 Vodacom Durban July, an annual prestigious event with superb horse racing, high fashion, elegance, fine cuisine and champagne. This year’s Vodacom Durban July will take place on Saturday 4 July at Greyville Racecourse with over 50 000 people expected to turn up on the day to watch the action first hand, while millions more will be watching on SABC television.
“SABC is delighted to be part of this prestigious event. The majority of South Africans aspire to attend events such as these and in most cases do not have the opportunity to do so. SABC’s comprehensive “on the ground” coverage will ensure that there is sufficient reach and leverage of the event. The combined power of SABC Radio stations and SABC TV channels will provide a competitive advantage and bring fresh and exclusive content to the listeners and viewers,” says SABC’s spokesperson Kaizer Kganyago.
