President’s Message

Willem Strauss President

Welcome to Loftus Versfeld, home of the Vodacom Blue Bulls and the #BullsFamily

It is hard to believe this is our last home fixture of the Currie Cup – sponsored by DirectAxis Financial Services – against the Cell C Sharks here tonight.


The Currie Cup remains the heartbeat of the domestic game and with the shortened version this year delivered some unbelievable drama and results, resulting in one of the most competitive tournaments in a long time.


The Vodacom Blue Bulls are unfortunately on the wrong side of the log and for us to make it into the semifinals, we need to win by 12 points and get a bonus point, so we can expect a very tense, but entertaining game tonight that is for sure.


We have some passionate fans here at the “Bulkraal’ and we can trust that they will be out in full force in support of Pote Human’s team.


We will have to be at our best against the Durban visitors and I am confident that the team will deliver the needed result.


Die Vodacom Blou Bulle was nog altyd ‘n span vir sy ondersteuners, iets wat veral opvallend is wanneer die span elders in Suid-Afrika speel.


Ons wil graag sien dat daardie ondersteuning terugspoel na Loftus Versfeld, want daar is geen beter plek om rugby te kyk as hierdie stadium nie.


Die span het onderneem om die vertroue van die getroue Loftus-gangers terug te wen en al wat ek kan vra is dat u hulle sal onderskraag deur veld toe te kom.


Die stadion het van die beste geriewe en die stadion is so toeskouer-vriendelik moontlik gemaak om die ervaring van ‘n dag op Loftus ‘n aangename ondervinding te hou.
Welcome to the Cell C Sharks team and officials.


A warm welcome also to the Vodacom Blue Bulls Under-21 team, who are leading the log in the SA Rugby Provincial Under-21 Championship, and the Leopards, their opponents in both sides last league fixture of that competition.


Our team already secured a home semifinal next weekend.


We want to thank all our sponsors, in particular Vodacom, who keep on supporting our teams and union. It is not easy to run such a big organisation such as the Vodacom Blue Bulls without the backing of sponsors, so we are really pleased to have you all aboard.


Enjoy the rugby!
