President’s Message

Welcome to Loftus Versfeld, home of the Vodacom Blue Bulls and the #BullsFamily

It is almost with a sense of anticipation that you are invited to our last home fixture of the Currie Cup – proudly brought to you by Nashua and DirectAxis Financial Services – against our traditional foes from the south, DHL Western Province.

Depending on results in this match and in the play-offs, we could still host the Currie Cup semifinals and finals, but it could also be the last time our beloved Vodacom Blue Bulls team play at home this year.

The Currie Cup remains the heartbeat of the domestic game and the five matches we have played has showed how competitive the 2019 version is.

The one round of matches only makes every match a must win and home games crucially important. Today’s match against the ‘Streeptruie’ will be such a match. They are not top of the log for nothing, so a statement of intent by Pote Human’s team will not only add to their confidence, but momentum as well and with the play-offs looming that will be a good thing.

We have some passionate fans here at the “Bulkraal’ and we can trust that they will be out in full force in support of our team.

Die Vodacom Blou Bulle was nog altyd ‘n span vir sy ondersteuners, iets wat veral opvallend is wanneer die span elders in Suid-Afrika speel. Ons wil graag sien dat daardie ondersteuning terugspoel na Loftus Versfeld, want daar is geen beter plek om rugby te kyk as hierdie stadium nie. Ons het begin om ons klubs en die Vodacom Blou Bulle nader aan mekaar te bring en is vol vertroue dat dit nog meer voete na die stadion sal beteken. Die stadion het van die beste geriewe en die stadion is so toeskouer-vriendelik moontlik gemaak om die ervaring van ‘n dag op Loftus ‘n aangename ondervinding te hou.

Welcome to the DHL Western Province team, their management and administrators, as well as all other dignitaries present here today.

We want to thank all our sponsors, in particular Vodacom, who keep on supporting our teams and union. It is not easy to run such a big organisation such as the Vodacom Blue Bulls without the backing of sponsors, so we are really pleased to have you all aboard.

Enjoy the rugby!
