Super Rugby Season 2017 kicks off at Newlands


No sooner does Super Rugby 2016 end than Super Rugby 2017 starts.  For the Cape Town based DHL Stormers the new season starts off on Saturday 25th February with what could be a bruiser of a Rugby Match.  The DHL Stormers kick their 2017 season off playing at Newlands Stadium against the Vodacom Bulls.

Rugby season is officially here and as with every season everyone wants their team to win. Cape Town is passionate about rugby and the DHL Stormers have a large, loyal and vocal number of supporters. Newlands stadium is the home of the DHL Stormers and for any rugby fan anywhere in the world it is one of the Rugby Stadiums on the bucket lists of must attends. Tucked away under Table Mountain Newlands has seen many memorable matches in its glorious history and the 2017 Super Rugby series will be no different.

On the back of a tough 2016 the 2017 season looks tremendously tough for Coach Robbie Fleck and his team.  Local support at the home games will be vital to keep team spirits alive as a tour from hell to New Zealand with matches against arch rivals Vodacom Bulls top and tail the season.  It will be a tough season, according to the coach Robbie Fleck and that means an exciting one that you need to be part of.
Getting close to the action and feeling the “Gees” or vibe can only come from being at Newlands Stadium watching the DHL Stormers play their hearts out. The oohs and aahs and cries of “Jou Lekker Ding” (You lovely thing) make Newlands something special for the whole family. Come rain or shine the terraces are nearly always full and the rugby is always superb.
The best way to get to Newlands without having to struggle for parking is to take a taxi.  Sport24hrs loves taking customers to Newlands. The ride is comfortable and the journey is affordable and Sport24hrs has local drivers that will ensure you are dropped off within easy walking distance of your seats.

With Sport24hrs your driver will more than likely have something to say about the Rugby, most do and the journey to the stadium will be as much a part of the game as the game itself. Taking a Sport24hrs taxi home from the rugby will be memorable too. One is almost certain again that the driver will have something to say about the match. If the Stormers win you will hear just how great the team is. If they lose, in true Capetonian style the driver will more than likely speak his mind.
A taxi to the Rugby means you can enjoy a half-time beer and that your day at the Rugby is hassle free. If you are local the convenience of using Sport24Hrs will make them part of your Rugby watching and their contact details will be kept close to your season ticket. For the visitor Sport24Hrs will make your day at the rugby easy and memorable.
When you want to get up close to the DHL Stormers go and support them and Newlands and let Sport24Hrs take the hassle out of getting there.
