The victorious Stormers squad will take the Vodacom United Rugby Championship trophy on an open-top bus parade in Cape Town on Friday.
The Stormers will start at the Grand Parade at 10:30am, then show off the trophy to supporters along the streets of the CBD, before heading along Somerset Road to Cape Town Stadium.
Stormers captain Steven Kitshoff and coach John Dobson, along with Cape Town mayor Geordin Hill-Lewis, will address the crowd outside City Hall before the players begin the tour.
The URC trophy will be on display across the city in the coming months, including presentations at clubs and schools. Fans can also have their picture taken with the silverware at Cape Town Stadium on Wednesday, from 11am to 3:30pm.
Dobson said that his team is very grateful to the City of Cape Town for arranging the opportunity.
“We have really felt the love of our supporters and the greater community this season and it will be fantastic for the players to say thank you to them in this way,” he said.
“The City of Cape Town and the mayor have been amazing in the way they have backed the team and this is another example of how they have stepped up to help connect us with our fans,” he said.
Hill-Lewis added: “It’s wonderful to be hosting the Stormers for their victory parade on Friday and I’m looking forward to seeing all of Cape Town come out and show their support for our champions!”
