The DHL Stormers have been named as the Best professional Sports Team as voted by KFM listeners in their Best of The Cape Awards this month.
Despite being separated from their Faithful supporters for over 18 months due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the love that the people of the Western Cape have for the DHL Stormers was underlined again with this award.
The DHL Stormers were nominated in the Best Professional Sports Team/Person category along with Olympic silver medallist Bianca Buitendag, Cape Town City FC, tennis player Lloyd Harris and Stellenbosch FC, as voted on by the 1 million KFM listeners.
DHL Stormers Head Coach John Dobson accepted the award on behalf of the team live on air on Friday morning.
With DHL Western Province set to play their Carling Currie Cup semifinal against the Vodacom Bulls in Pretoria on Friday night, the award comes as a boost to the team, who have had to play without the support of their Faithful supporters for over a year.
