New Zealand rugby officials have decided the drone of the vuvuzelas will not happen at this years Springboks/ All Blacks Tests or at next year’s Rugby World Cup
Vuvuzelas won’t be allowed into Saturday’s Test between the All Blacks and South Africa at Auckland’s Eden Park and they will also be banned at rugby’s premiere event in New Zealand in 2011.
Eden Park chief executive david Kennedy said loud horns have never been allowed at the ground.
“I think its a judgment call on whether to let in certain items,” Kennedy said. “Any vuvuzelas brought to the venue will be confiscated.”
The Rugby World Cup’s official website states that any air horns or sound amplifiers will be prohibited from games, along with musical instruments and whistles.
Vuvuzelas became the signature of the football World Cup in South Africa but the monotonous drone is hated by many as it drowns out crowd chants and makes it almost impossible for players to communicate.
