    CT Stadium date for Stormers

    2013-01-22 17:55
    Cape Town - The Stormers will play their pre-season friendly against the Boland Cavaliers at the Cape Town Stadium, EWN Sport reported on Tuesday afternoon.

    The Capetionians are scheduled to play two warm-up games ahead of the Super Rugby tournament - against the Cheetahs on February 2 and Boland on February 9.

    An official announcement regarding the venue is expected to be made on Wednesday.

    Hosting the game at the Cape Town Stadium will be welcomed by the City of Cape Town, who have been at loggerheads with the WP Rugby Union over the last few years.

    The city wants the union to move to the luxurious stadium in Green Point which has become a huge financial burden due to its high cost of maintenance. The stadium was originally built for the 2010 Soccer World Cup.

    The Stormers start the season-proper with an away game against arch-rivals, the Bulls, at Loftus Versfeld in Pretoria on February 22. They won the South African conference title last year, but lost a home semi-final to the Sharks.
