• Stormers to play in Green Point

    The Boland Kavaliers will host the Stormers at the Cape Town Stadium next Saturday.

    WP Rugby recently announced that Newlands Stadium would remain its home after the WPRFU voted unanimously against a possible move to the Cape Town Stadium. However, Boland wish to play their annual pre-season match against the Stormers at the 2010 Fifa World Cup venue, which has become a white elephant for the City of Cape Town.

    With the main match kicking off at 4pm, a Boland XV will face a WP Vodacom Cup XV in a curtain-raiser at 2pm (gates open at 12pm).

    Tickets are available at Computicket as well as from Shoprite and Checkers stores. Seats are priced at R50 (behind the posts) and R80 (East and West stands).

    Fans are encouraged to use public transport or park in the city centre and make their way to the Cape Town Stadium using the Fan Walk via Somerset Road or the MyCiti Stadium bus shuttle service from the Cape Town Civic Centre.
