The Vodacom Durban July 2020 is being staged 'behind-closed-doors' on
Saturday, in strict adherence with the COVID-19 lockdown protocols and
guidelines agreed with the relevant health and security authorities. As
set out in the NHA regulations, we cannot permit any media personnel to
attend the event to cover, as they have done in the past.
Accordingly there will be no application for media accreditation and no
media whatsoever will be permitted to enter Hollywoodbets Greyville
Racecourse on Saturday 25 July to cover the event.

properly cover the event.
We have a team of in-house photographers, videographers and journalists
that will be working on Friday and Saturday to service the Vodacom
Durban July Media Toolkit that will be available on the event website
