It was announced today that the Vodacom Bulls will play a Vodacom SupeRugby warm up match against the DHL Stormers at Peter Mokaba Stadium on 1 February 2014.
Announced today at a press conference hosted by the Polokwane Municipality, the Vodacom Bulls will play one of their warm up matches against the DHL Stormers.
With kick off set for 17h00 on 1 February, the scene will be set for what will hopefully be a successful SupeRugby season for all South African teams involved. For the third consecutive year, the Vodacom Bulls will take to the impressive 45 000-seater World Cup stadium.
This fixture forms part of a partnership between the Blue Bulls Company (BBC) and the Polokwane Municipality which is aimed at generating funds for tertiary learners in the Province.
Barend van Graan, Blue Bulls Company CEO, says the Polokwane fixture is one of the highlights of their pre-season preparations.
"Now in our third year of this agreement, we've always felt very much at home in Polokwane. The stadium is world class, the people supportive and the weather outstanding. The only thing left is for both teams to put on an outstanding display in their first time out. We are honoured that by participating in this match, we can hopefully send many more eager young learners onto further their education."
Freddy Greaver, Polokwane Executive Mayor, has watched the rugby culture grow in the city ever since the Vodacom Bulls first played a warm-up match in the City in 2010 against the MTN Lions.
"The Peter Mokaba Stadium is a stadium starved of quality rugby. So this match once again provides a platform on which not only can our people enjoy the game, but we can also fundraise for tertiary students who will ultimately help grow the Limpopo economy. I see it as a win-win situation for all those involved and thank the BBC for their partnership."
And so come 1 February, the scene will be set for the first of many 2014 impressive encounters – with this, the first of the season, taking place in the heart of Polokwane.
