Bulls to warm up for SuperRugby against Stormers

The Bulls have announced that they will play a Super Rugby warm up match against the Stormers at Peter Mokaba Stadium on the 1st of February 2014.

The Bulls made the announcement at a onference hosted by the Polokwane Municipality and said that the kick off has been set for 17h00 on 1 February 2014.

This will be the third consecutive year that the Bulls will play in the impressive 45 000-seater World Cup stadium.

This fixture forms part of a partnership between the Blue Bulls Company (BBC) and the Polokwane Municipality which is aimed at generating funds for tertiary learners in the Province.

Barend van Graan, Blue Bulls Company CEO, says the Polokwane fixture is one of the highlights of their pre-season preparations.

“Now in our third year of this agreement, we’ve always felt very much at home in Polokwane. The stadium is world class, the people supportive and the weather outstanding.”

“The only thing left is for both teams to put on an outstanding display in their first time out. We are honoured that by participating in this match, we can hopefully send many more eager young learners onto further their education.”

Freddy Greaver, Polokwane Executive Mayor, has watched the rugby culture grow in the city ever since the Bulls first played a warm-up match in the City in 2010 against the Lions.

“The Peter Mokaba Stadium is a stadium starved of quality rugby. So this match once again provides a platform on which not only can our people enjoy the game, but we can also fundraise for tertiary students who will ultimately help grow the Limpopo economy.”

“I see it as a win-win situation for all those involved and thank the BBC for their partnership.”

And so come 1 February, the scene will be set for the first of many 2014 impressive encounters – with this, the first of the season, taking place in the heart of Polokwane
