Bulls v Stormers sold out

2012-05-26 17:14

Pretoria - Next Saturday’s Vodacom Super Rugby match between the Bulls and Stormers at Loftus Versfeld is officially sold out. Kick-off is at 19:10.

The Bulls' fortress will host 50 000 fans, and the Blue Bulls Company is hoping to make it an all-pink affair in an effort to raise the awareness of the importance of early cancer detection.

CEO of the Blue Bulls Company, Barend van Graan said he was once again overwhelmed with the positive response of the rugby loving public.

“I am touched by our loyal supporters who have booked their seat to watch their beloved team. We will be playing in our alternative match kit in an effort to support the Cancer Association of South Africa. I would like to challenge our Bulls family as well as other rugby lovers to get behind our Get Your Pink On campaign and wear pink on Saturday. We have an SMS donation line open as well as a website and I urge everyone to please make a donation - no matter how small.”

In an effort to encourage fans to arrive early, there will be plenty of pre-match entertainment including Robbie Wessels performing in the beer tent on the D-field as well as a kids entertainment area.

To support CANSA in the fight against cancer, SMS the amount of your donation to 30100 or go to to make an online donation.

    Why? Not exactly top class competition the Bulls are facing. They playing a 16yr cupless team

      hahah good one!

      Johann - 2012-05-26 21:25

      Johan, waar word die Stormers ooit bevoordeel? kom ons kyk bulle speel in NZ dan kry hulle SA refs, julle ouens kom weg met dodgy goed. Maar dis fyn. Sterkte Stormers.

      Johan: Some Pink Bulls fans have been going on about this "Trophy Cabinet" saga adinfinitum, so let us finally put this topic to bed. If I go to the trophy cabinet in Newlands I see a Vodacom Cup and a trophy that says that the Stormers were the SA Super 15 Champs in 2011. There are also a string of junior team trophies as well. If you go to Moftus you will see in your cabinet zip, zero, squat, phokall. (That picture of Mesiekind holding hands with John Travolta does not count) Case closed.

      Francois - 2012-05-27 12:50

      How many trophy's does the Bulls currently have?

      Daniel - 2012-05-28 08:12

      paul.coetzee1: The facts remain that the Stormers are cupless. Who cares how many 'Junior' championships you've won, let alone Vodacom 'mediocre rugby' Cups you've won. The performance of your best team is what counts. They are nothing more than a bunch of puppies trying to piss with the BIG dogs, but getting pissed on in the process! GTFO!

      CharlesDumbwin - 2012-05-27 08:20

      After watching useless WeePee last night, the smart money is on the Bulls !!!

      Bossie - 2012-05-27 09:10

      after super useless bulls the past 2 weeks, money on Stormers is easy money!

    Humiliation at home as well. I love it. More people to watch live how the bulls get a lesson in rugby at home, and just because it is a promotion for cancer, the stormers wont charge you for the lesson. Hope it is a good game. GO STORMERS by 6

      jean.rossouwsa - 2012-05-26 17:40

      Stormers by 6 = Humiliation,lesson in rugby!! Bulls by 13 what do you call it then?

      dawiej - 2012-05-26 17:47

      Jean , you having a wet dream .....;-)

    Irrespective of this result, the Stormers will top the (SA) log. The Bulls might come in second but that depends on the Sharks. IF the Bulls do get the second place (or miracle beyond miracle lead the pack!) they will lose. We were not consistent during the season. One great game and then a flop. Great patches here and there but overall just not good enough. I suspect that this is due to rebuilding. And if you take into account how many new faces there are in this team and how much experience they lost it is amazing how well they did/are doing but in the end we will not be good enough! What a pity! Go Bull and prove me wrong!

      jay.webb.792 - 2012-05-26 22:32

      Well i guess you posted too soon, maybe should've waited after the Stormers lost in Durban. At the moment: Stormers 50, Bulls 48, Sharks 45. So if the Sharks win against the Lions. (which they probably will) The Bulls can either be 1st (doubt that the stormers would get 2 bonus points if they lose) or 3rd in SA or the stormers 1st or 2nd.

      jandreleroux - 2012-05-27 05:53

      Jay, please read and re-type the first sentence of my post!

  • Freddy - 2012-05-27 08:25

    Loftus is the "bullring" in rugby. One stipulation please for this sold out event: NO BRYCE LAWRENCE!!

  • Bossie - 2012-05-27 10:12

    Okay news24, as julle nie gelukkig is met my comment, kom laat ek dit rephrase.. Weet iemand of Kanker voordeel kry uit al die pienk truie wat verkoop word, aangesien die BBRU hulle supporters aanspoor om dit n all pink loftus te maak?

      anton.welman - 2012-05-28 10:39


      Bossie - 2012-05-28 11:53

      Wel Anton, 1.Ek het n vraag gevra en jyt niks geantwoord. 2.As jy self wil weet, gaan doen jou huiswerk.

  • Roy - 2012-05-28 09:07

    Just check the pic for this story,I rest my case what a buch of plonkers. Die naweek start hulle weer die grootste engine in die wereld op loftus dan kan die hele wereld duisende tappits sien op en af spring.

      Anton - 2012-05-28 12:14

      Roy - 2012-05-28 14:39

  • anton.welman - 2012-05-28 10:28

So VAT NET DIE LAASTE DEKADE SE WeNNE EN JULLE HET 2 ORDENTLIKE BEKERS GEWEN ..2000 EN 2001 Curriebekers. Beide games teen die Sharks. Die vodacom Cup.???.baie geluk Stormers.. na 15 jaar van VODACOM CUP HET JULLE DIE BEKER OOK AL 1 KEER GEWEN. En die terloopse beker vir 2011 Conference cup wenners.. n idee uitgedink deur die Ausies en halfpad deur verlede jaar se Superrugby.. besluit hulle elke Conference wenner kry n troosprys beker..WAT N JOKE.!! Wen n slag iets wat saakmaak... in ons land is dit Curriebeker en Superrugby wat rerig tel..punt !! En BEIDE die KOMPETISIES het die Bulls meer gewen as enige ander span in SA ...PS (INGESLUIT DIE WP/STORMERS

      Roy - 2012-05-28 14:36
