The Blue Bulls Company (BBC) is redefining the Ultimate Fan Experience at Loftus Versfeld starting this Friday, with an interactive, stimulating and comprehensive experience. The Bull Pen will be launched just hours before kick off and is an area on the D-field for spectators of all ages to have some fun with a host of activities such as testing their strength against the front row and showing their support for the team.

The Bull Pen opens three hours before kickoff and remains open for an hour after the final whistle. One of the highlights at the Bull Pen on Friday night will be the not-to-be-missed performance by the Vodacom Bulls Babes who will perform their rendition of Stand By Me, launched by the Vodacom Bulls on 11 February.

Barend van Graan, Blue Bulls Company CEO, says his team is taking the Bulls experience and 'sportainment' to another level this season.

"We want 2013 to be synonomous with success, memorable celebrations and appreciation for our loyal fans. We've had a great start to the new year with the launch of our 75th Anniversary celebrations, followed by good performances by the team in their pre-season matches which I believe has set the stage for a wonderful year ahead both on and off the field.

The support of our fans at Loftus Versfeld can never be underestimated and it was with that in mind, that we wanted to make their visits to the Stadium unforgettable and enjoyable ones."

Some of the new entertainment at Loftus Versfeld will entail virtual experiences for the Bulls faithful.

"The scrum machine promises to be extremely popular for our spectators who will have the opportunity to test their strength against the front row. The machine will be weighted the same as the Vodacom Bulls front row for that night's match which means that groups of fans will have a rare opportunity to push our front row.

Fans should also be sure to try out the dunk tank which is bound to generate a few laughs. We are committed to making Loftus Versfeld the best 'sportainment' experience for our fans."

The children's playground at the C-Field will be fully operational and equipped with a host of fun activities for the littles ones including jumping castles, bounce donkeys, inflatables and jungle gyms.

The Weber Braai Corner also makes its debut at Loftus Versfeld on Friday night. Situated next to the SAB Beer Garden, the Weber Braai corner is fully equipped with gas grills and accessories for fans to use free of charge. Quality meat packs and flavoursome side dishes will be available for purchase at kiosks in the Stadium.

Stand By the Bulls is the theme for 2013 and the new Blue Bulls Supporters Club is going all out to mobilise the Bulls faithful to Loftus Versfeld throughout this season.

Prizes, benefits and VIP treatment await participating fans who can register with the club by visiting or by sending an SMS with the word "Bulls" to 43129.

Blue Bulls Supporters Club members can earn Bulle Bucks by participating in a host of activities this season and receive numerous benefits when they sign up, such as VIP treatment in the Beer Garden, one free movie ticket per month, breaking news Text messages and much more for just R49 per month.

The 22nd of February promises to be jampacked with pre-match entertainment and activities to be followed by a scintillating encounter between South Africa's Super Rugby heavyweights at 7:10pm.
