OSPGEN 78: Soccer and Rugby in South Africa: A Racial Divide and Future Transformation

A superficial analysis of the compositions of the most recent South Africa World Cup soccer and rugby teams would indicate that soccer is largely a sport for those of African origin whereas the latter is populated by those of European descent. Likewise the support for these two sports appears to show similar demographics and proportionality. This course then proposes to examine the depth to which these notions are true, and if so, the historical and societal factors which play a role in this apparent divide. It is expected that, like any close scrutiny of aspects of culture in South Africa, the real situation is much more complex, but by focusing on two of the country¿s most popular pastimes aspects of the structure of modern South African society can be revealed. Any relevance to our own society and sports will in addition be sought.
