The Boland Cavaliers will be hosting the DHL Stormers at the Cape Town Stadium in Green Point this year, when they square off in their annual pre-season friendly next Saturday (7 February 2015).
This match, between neighbours Boland Rugby and the DHL Stormers, has become a popular fixture on the South African Rugby calendar and offers valuable preparation for both teams, as the Cavaliers and the DHL Stormers will both be gearing towards successful campaigns this season. While the Cavaliers are getting ready for the Vodacom Cup in March, the DHL Stormers are heading into another tough Vodacom Super Rugby competition from mid-February.
With the main match kicking off at 16h00, a Boland XV team will face a DHL Western Province Vodacom Cup XV at the same venue, in a curtain raiser at 14h00 (gates open at 12h00).
This year will offer a unique experience in terms of rugby festivities, as the Cape Town Tens Rugby tournament will also be taking place, right next door at Hamilton’s Rugby Club (on 6 and 7 February 2015). With thousands of rugby fanatics expected to be in and around the Cape Town Stadium, this promises to be one very colourful rugby weekend!
“The Cape Town Stadium was built as a venue for all the people of Cape Town. It is an iconic Cape Town asset and a fully inclusive facility for all. This match is a great opportunity for rugby fans to enjoy their sport and to enjoy the best of the Cape Town Stadium,” said Mayoral Committee Member for Tourism, Events and Economic Development in the City of Cape Town, Councillor Garreth Bloor.
Fans are encouraged to use public transport or park in the City Centre and make their way to the Cape Town Stadium using the Fan Walk via Somerset Road or the MyCiti Stadium bus shuttle service from the Cape Town Civic Centre.
Some great prizes will be up for grabs on the day, with the first 2000 ticket holders going into the lucky draw to win two signed rugby jerseys (Boland Cavaliers and DHL Stormers).
Tickets are available at Computicket – both online and from outlets – as well as from Shoprite and Checkers stores. Seats are priced at R50 (behind the posts) and R80 (East and West stands).
