The South African Off Field Full Zip Sweatshirt is manufactured by Canterbury (CCC). It is made from 80% cotton 20% polyester brushed fleece, 280gsm. It is the official South Africa Springboks Players Issue Full Zip Sweatshirt released for the 2009-10 rugby season.

The South Africa Off Field Full Zip Sweatshirt is predominantly green with a cream stripe down the length of each arm. It also has the South African Springbok badge embroidered to the left chest, with the CCC logo to the right.

The first ever South African Rugby international took place at Port Elizabeth's St Georges Park Cricket Ground in 1891 in a test match between the touring British Lions and South Africa. Rugby became so popular that in 1902 there was a temporary ceasefire in the Second Boer War so that a game could be played between British and Boer forces. In 1903 the previously stronger British Lions touring team lost a series for the 1st time against the South African national side, which only fuelled the growth of Rugby in South Africa. In 1906-1907 the South African National Rugby side toured Great Britain playing all 4 of the home nation sides. It was the South African captain Paul Roos, who first used the term Springboks to describe the team, to prevent the British press from coining their own nickname! From this point on The South African press refereed to them as "De Springbokken". The springboks also crossed the English Channel to France to play an unofficial match against France; South Africa won this first encounter 55-6! In 1912-1913 the Springboks returned on another European tour, this time they beat the 4 home nations and France before travelling home victorious!
