South Africa’s Super Rugby teams will wear new Marvel-inspired jerseys when they run out at Cape Town Stadium on #SuperHeroSunday (3 February) at the first public appearance of the Marvel makeover of SA’s Vodacom Super Rugby teams.
Inspired by Marvel’s Spider-Man, Thor, Black Panther and Captain America, double-header on Sunday 3 February will be the first time that the four local franchises will wear their new jerseys.
The jersey designs have each been meticulously crafted to reflect the superheroes the South African teams will represent while also staying true to each team’s already iconic colour identity.
The Emirates Lions will be dressed in the familiar webbed suit of Spider-Man; the Cell C Sharks will adopt the Black Panther look; the DHL Stormers will be looking to hammer their opponents in the colours of Thor; and the Vodacom Bulls will shield all attacks thrown their way as Captain America.
The jerseys will be exclusively worn in most South African derbies. The teams will wear in their usual jerseys for matches against international opposition.
On Sunday 3 February in Cape Town, there will be an emphasis on entertainment, with families encouraged to dress up as their favourite super heroes, and the day will be packed with activations and assorted giveaways and prizes.
Tickets, from R50 (or four from R150), are available at Computicket, while corporate hospitality can be arranged via www.circa.co.za. There will be no ticket sales at the stadium on match day. Gates open at 12h00.
