The Toyota Cheetahs and Vodacom Bulls meet on Saturday, 3 March at 17:05 in their first Vodacom Super Rugby home game of the season.
The Toyota Cheetahs are going big in 2012 with popular artists like Juanita du Plessis, Jakkie Louw, Hugo and Joubert performing live from as early as 13:00 with the compliments of SAB on the old hockey pitch behind the main stand. The fun is not over when the final whistle blows. After the big game, the artist will continue and to include all the suite holders and supporters, the performances on stage will be linked to the big screens inside the stadium.
The Toyota Cheetahs will be handing out signatures on-field after the game and supporters can take this opportunity to wish the team good luck before they leave for their overseas tour on Sunday.
Gates open at 12:00 and parents can live their kids in trusted care at the new Toyota kiddies area. Free State Stadium also offers supporters the choice of alcohol free areas on the main stand and middle sections of the open stand on the upper and lower levels.
Tickets for the main stand are R80, R50 for adults on the open stand and R20 for kids. Groups of 20 or more can get tickets at a special price of R50 for the main stand and R40 for the open stand, when purchased from the ticket office before Saturday, 3 March. Tickets are available from the ticket office in Free State Stadium and also at Computicket and Computicket outlets at Shoprite and Checkers stores across the country. Season tickets are still available and supporters have the option of paying for it with a debit order for as little as R66.44 per month for a budget seat.
