Cheetahs to welcome fans’ return in dash for cash

An exciting bonanza awaits fans in November, when Free State Rugby welcomes back supporters for the first time in almost two years.

The Challenge Series is a new tournament: one where every victory earns a prize of R250,000 and where players will do everything in their power to win cash bonuses for explosive play.

Players making the most tackles, linebreaks and turnovers all win cash prizes.

The player of the match will win R10,000, while the supporter who posts the most social media posts during the match with hashtag #ToyotaLegendSupport will win R10,000 and be crowned supporter of the match.

“We are excited to host the Challenge Series and to welcome spectators back to the Free State Stadium,” Harold Verster, managing director of the Free State Cheetahs, said.

“This is an initiative of Free State Rugby.

“Our naming sponsor is making a very large contribution to make this possible and this places us in the spotlight of both international rugby and our supporters, who are keen to see the Cheetahs back in action.

“Free State did not sit back waiting for the start of the Currie Cup in January 2022 and is hard at work to play international rugby again.”

In the opening fixture of the series, hosts the Cheetahs will take on Western Province on Saturday at 5:30pm.

The match will be broadcast live on SuperSport.

Tickets are on sale at R100 each at the ticket office in the Toyota Stadium.

All spectators must be fully vaccinated.  You are fully vaccinated 14 days after receiving the J&J Covid-19 vaccine or 14 days after receiving your second Pfizer-BioNTech Covid-19 vaccine.
