DHL Stormers to face Vodacom Bulls in Wellington

PUBLISHED: January 16, 2018

The pre-season clash between the DHL Stormers and Vodacom Bulls on Saturday, February 3, will take place at Boland Stadium in Wellington.

The match was originally scheduled to be played in Los Angeles, but due to logistical issues will now be held locally in the Cape.

Whilst disappointed to miss an opportunity to grow both the game of rugby and the DHL Stormers brand in the USA, the DHL Stormers are looking forward to playing in front of their faithful supporters in Wellington, ahead of the opening game of the 2018 Vodacom Super Rugby season which will see them take on the Jaguares at DHL Newlands on February 17.

The DHL Stormers’ first warm-up game will see them face the SWD Eagles at Outeniqua Park in George, with kick-off at 15h00 on Saturday, January 20.

The match against the Vodacom Bulls in Wellington, which will kick off at 16h00 on February 3, will provide an opportunity for Head Coach Robbie Fleck’s squad to measure themselves against Vodacom Super Rugby opposition in preparation for the upcoming season.

More information regarding ticketing and details of the match in Wellington will be confirmed in due course.
