President’s Message

Willem Strauss President

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

The start of the 2019 Vodacom Super Rugby competition proved to be as exciting as we all hoped, with the Vodacom Bulls winning two of their first three matches. That good start will be tested today, with the Cell C Sharks coming to our turf with some strong showings behind them as well.

The local derbies so far has shown real quality in play and intensity and this will be on display again today. Handré and the rest of the guys are going to need your help and vocal support today.

We have some passionate fans here at the “Bulkraal’ and we can trust that like always, the values of the game and respect for the opponents will again be there for all to see and enjoy.

Die Vodacom Bulls 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. 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 Cell C Sharks 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 Bulls without the backing of sponsors, so we are really pleased to have you all aboard.

A special word of welcome also to the club sides ABE Midas Naka Bulls v CT Hydraulics Sishen. Their SSG Gold Cup match – presented by Blu Approved & M4Jam – will be played as a curtain raiser here today. Our clubs are an integral part of the Vodacom Bulls fibre and it is great to have our representative in the tournament playing their match here in the #Bulkraal.

Enjoy the rugby!
