The Springboks will again face the All Blacks in Wellington next year as part of a reduced Rugby Championship schedule.
The condensed Rugby Championship means that the Springboks will travel to the Westpac Stadium in July 2019, two months before they face their traditional foes in the World Cup opener in Japan.
The Springboks recorded a famous 36-34 victory over the All Blacks at the same venue in the 2018 Rugby Championship, and this will be the only time the two sides will get to face each other before they meet in the World Cup.
Meanwhile, the Bledisloe Cup match between the All Blacks and Wallabies will be held in Auckland on 17 August 2019.
