Cape Town – South Africa’s top players wearing their new jerseys inspired by Marvel’s Spider-Man, Thor, Black Panther and Captain America will run out at Cape Town Stadium on Sunday, February 3.
It will be the first public appearance of the new-look jerseys, which will serve as the third strips for the South African sides in this year’s Super Rugby competition.
The double-header in Cape Town will see the Sharks take on the Lions (14:00) before the Bulls play the Stormers.
The Lions will be dressed in the familiar webbed suit of Spider-Man; the Sharks will adopt the Black Panther look; the Stormers will be looking to hammer their opponents in the colours of Thor; and the Bulls will shield all attacks thrown their way as Captain America.
The jerseys will be exclusively worn in most South African derbies while the teams will wear in their usual jerseys for matches against international opposition.
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 12:00.
