Vodacom Stormers to play Bulls in warm up match at Newlands

PUBLISHED: January 9, 2006

With the 2006 Vodacom Super 14 kicking off in less than 5 weeks, the Vodacom Stormers begin their match preparations with a friendly pre-season warm up match against local rivals the Bulls.

The match is on Saturday 21 January at Newlands, and kick-off is at 5.00pm.

Tickets for the above game went on sale today (Monday 9th January) at all Shoprite / Checkers Money Markets or from www.ticketshop.co.za or 083 918 0001. Tickets will also be available from the Newlands box office as of Tuesday 17 January.

Tickets will be unreserved on all stands, and prices are R20 seated and R10 standing. Season tickets are NOT VALID for this game.

“As we have done in the past, we have looked to keep the price of the tickets to this pre-season game as low as possible so as to allow all supporters of the Vodacom Stormers access to Newlands to a match,” said Stormers CEO Rob Wagner.

“The Vodacom Super 14 is an incredibly demanding competition and you need to hit the ground running, as such it is crucial for us to play good sides at the top of their game,” said Vodacom Stormers coach Kobus Van Der Merwe. “Playing an experienced and respected side like the Bulls in a warm up fixture will afford us a measure of where we are at in terms of our preparation.”
