Absa Currie Cup Trophy Tour coming to Pretoria
Absa will this year make the dreams of two die-hard rugby fans come true as they stand a chance to win the opportunity of a life time, to celebrate with their heroes at the Absa Currie Cup Final on 26 October 2013.
As the proud supporter of the oldest running rugby competition in the world, Absa will be rewarding loyal fans through the Celebrate like your Heroes competition.
The competition is part of the Absa Currie Cup Trophy Tour, and sees the cream of the crop of South African rugby travel to all six unions. The next stop on the Absa Currie Cup’s Trophy Tour will be in Pretoria on Thursday 12 September 15h00 -16h00, at the Menlyn Park Shopping Centre.
Absa will also be celebrating the Human Spirit of the Blue Bulls, as one of the most successful Absa Currie Cup teams marks their 75th anniversary.
The Blue Bulls Rugby Union had its humble beginnings in 1938 and has since grown into a giant of the local rugby scene, winning the Absa Currie Cup on 23 occasions. They last won the Absa Currie Cup in 2009.
As part of the celebrations die-hard Bulls fans could win a once-in-lifetime experience with the “Best Dressed” competition at the signing session.
The stakes are high as only the biggest Bulls fanatic that best demonstrate their passion for the Light Blues — whether they are painted from head to toe in blue or come with horns on their heads – will win this amazing prize.
The winner and a friend will attend Absa’s celebration breakfast at Loftus Versfeld on Friday morning along with Blue Bulls players and rugby legends.
They will get to watch the Captain’s Run, and go on a tour of the museum, tunnel, field and the change room, while there will also be a Q&A with rugby legends.
To top it all off, the winner will be hosted in a VIP hospitality suit for the north-south derby between the Blue Bulls and Western Province at Loftus Versfeld on Saturday.
The Trophy Tour event will see Blue Bulls players host a signing session for their supporters. The players will take photos with their fans, sign autograph cards and merchandise. Fans will also have the opportunity of winning match tickets and other prizes at the activation.
Blue Bulls supporters are encouraged to attend these events as they will not only win prizes on the day, but through the Celebrate Like Your Heroes competition they could be celebrating with their heroes at the Absa Currie Cup Final.
There will be a green screen photo booth for fans to have their photos taken with the Absa Currie Cup. Fans will hold the Absa Currie Cup aloft and the image will be super-imposed to make it look like they are celebrating with the captain of their supported team. After fans have their photos taken they will be asked to enter their details at a touch-screen kiosk and be able to share these photos to Facebook and Twitter.
A winner will be chosen from entrants supporting each of the teams that make it to the Absa Currie Cup Final. Each of these winners and their partners will win an Ultimate Absa Currie Cup Final experience including:
· Return flights to host city
· 2 nights 4 star accommodation
· Team supporter merchandise
· Money cannot buy experiences with trophy and Absa Currie Cup legends
· Absa VIP hospitality including match tickets
· Pitch access for anthems and post-match ceremony
The winner supporting the victorious team will receive the honour of carrying the Absa Currie Cup onto the field as part of the post-match handover ceremony. The first time in the history of the Absa Currie Cup that a fan is bestowed with this honour.
Celebrate like your Heroes and stand a chance to celebrate with your heroes. Celebrating like your Heroes, that’s the Human Spirit.
