The Bulls and Sharks will meet in a Super Rugby warm-up match at the Peter Mokaba Stadium in Polokwane on 27 January.
The Bulls have used the venue for pre-season games regularly since 2010, with the proceeds of these matches going towards tertiary funds for students in the region.
‘The feedback we got from the players over the past couple of years was great and they all love playing in the stadium and interacting with the fans,’ said Bulls CEO Barend van Graan.
‘The cause is also one that the team is very keen about, and will be looking forward to assisting again.
‘From a coaching perspective, this will give John Mitchell some very valuable game time for this squad against quality opposition, and this match will be vital in our preparations as the 2018 Super Rugby competition draws closer.’
