Get close to your heroes at DHL Newlands Sleepover

PUBLISHED: January 5, 2018

The DHL Newlands Sleepover on Friday, January 26 will be a unique opportunity for DHL Stormers fans to get close to their heroes.

Tickets for this special event are available from Computicket at the same price as 2017 – R695 for a parent and child between the ages of 6 and 13, while additional single tickets are R345 each.

Registration will take place in the North-West corner of DHL Newlands between 15h30 and 16h30 on Friday, with parking available in the parking garage in Boundary rd across from DHL Newlands.

The DHL Stormers will hold a training session, which is open to the media and those attending the DHL Newlands Sleepover, at 16h00.

Following the training session there will be a welcome from the MC and a group photo with players and management.

The children will then go into a coaching clinic and tag rugby matches with selected DHL Stormers players, while the parents attend a live press conference and ‘War Room’ experience, with Head coach Robbie Fleck and captain Siya Kolisi.

There will then be a signing session for the children on the field before tents are fetched from the parking garage and set up on the field by the campers.

Crown Foods will feed everyone a boerewors braai dinner at DHL Newlands, with entertainment in the stadium bar for parents and a movie screening for the children later in the evening.

Everyone attending will receive a goodie bag including a tee-shirt, snacks and various other promotional items provided by our sponsors.

After camping on the pitch, a small breakfast will be provided in the morning before everyone heads home.

Parking is provided free of charge in the parking garage near the stadium, so tents do not have to be carried very far to be set up on the pitch.

Book your tickets early as demand for this popular event is high and tickets are expected to sell quickly.

Pitch Etiquette:
DHL Newlands Rugby Stadium is one of the most exquisite grounds in world rugby. The pitch is extremely sensitive, especially during summer. Please abide by the following rules and regulations:
Pick up your rubbish and discard it in the provided bins.
DO NOT urinate on the pitch- even the smallest children! Urine changes the chemical composition of the soil and it leaves marks on the pitch and affects the growth of the grass!
The entire stadium is a non-smoking venue.
Do not dig up the grass.
No pegs are to be used in the pitch (if left behind they are a danger to players).

Please note:
This event is weather permitting and may be cancelled at the discretion of the event organiser’s.
Indemnity forms must be signed prior to the event.
No pets will be allowed.
No open flames will be tolerated, including gas.
This is an experience you can’t afford to miss.
