Loftus Versfeld 'open' for business

NEWS: Bulls chief executive Edgar Rathbone revealed his franchise is extremely excited to host spectators at Loftus Versfeld when the Champions Team takes on Kenya on Saturday.


The stadium had a successful test run last week after hosting the final between ABE Midas Naka Bulle, who were crowned champions, and Northam Rhinos.

Blue Bulls Company (BBCo) chief executive, Edgar Rathbone, said: “After an extended period of playing matches with no crowds at Loftus Versfeld, we are thrilled to be able to accommodate spectators again.

“Having government allowing us to accommodate 2 000 people is a step in the right direction, and we are confident that in the near future we will see this number increase and we will soon be able to see a full Loftus Versfeld again.

“Before we get there, however, it is imperative that we, as the hosts, and the spectators adhere to all guidelines and protocols, as per the recent Government Gazette.

“The future and having full stadia lies heavily on how we observe and follow these regulations.

“We look forward to welcoming our spectators, the Champions Team and the Kenyan team to Loftus.”
