    Historic first for Moses Mabhida Stadium

    2018-06-27 14:06

    Cape Town - The Sharks have announced that they will host Bordeaux Begles in a friendly at the Moses Mabhida Stadium in Durban at the end of Super Rugby 2018.

    The match will take place on Friday, August 17 and it will be the first ever Sharks fixture hosted at the iconic 2010 Soccer World Cup venue. 

    Ever since, reports have suggested that the Sharks were on the verge of a permanent move from Kings Park to Moses Mabhida, but that has never happened. 

    Instead, the venue has hosted PSL football, international football, one international T20 cricket match and one rugby match between the Springbok 'A' side and the French Barbarians in 2017. 

    In a series of tweets, stadium management confirmed the news on Wednesday. 

    The match is being dubbed the 'Durban Challenge', and there will be special ticket offers that include the Sharks match as well as the Springboks' Rugby Championship clash against Argentina at Kings Park the following day.
