Cape Town - The Cheetahs will sport a different jersey in their Super Rugby opener against the Jaguares in Bloemfontein on Friday (19:00 kick-off).

As part of celebrating their sponsorship extension, the Cheetahs wear a once-off special edition black playing kit to celebrate the launch of the New Generation Hilux.

This comes after Toyota South Africa Motors renewed their sponsorship for another three years.

The home ground of the Cheetahs has also been renamed Toyota Stadium.

The Cheetahs’ home ground was formerly known as Free State Stadium, but will now carry the Toyata name.

The new contract will include the title sponsorship for the Super Rugby team as well as the Currie Cup and junior teams.
