PUBLISHED: July 15, 2022


The magnificent DHL Stadium is where it is at on Saturday at 17h05, when the Faithful will ‘bring the gees’ for the Springboks in the Castle Lager Incoming Series decider against Wales.

Western Province Rugby is thrilled to host the first Springbok match at DHL Stadium with fans in attendance, with the Faithful set to echo the SA Rugby spirit of Stronger Together, Stronger Forever.

DHL Stormers such as Frans Malherbe, Damian Willemse and Steven Kitshoff have been named in the Springbok line-up, while Eben Etzebeth (100 Tests) and Bongi Mbonambi (50 Tests) will reach major career milestones.

A few practical tips for fans to make the most of this momentous occasion:

• Gates open at 14h00 so get there early and make use of the food and bar services on offer inside the stadium.
• Enjoy the beer garden with DJ and many food options from our food trucks for a late lunch or early dinner ahead of the match.
• A reminder that no public parking is available at DHL Stadium and spectators are encouraged to park in the Cape Town city bowl and catch a free MyCiTi shuttle to the event, courtesy of The City of Cape Town.
