Newlands, Cape Town – This past weekend was a double-victory for the DHL Stormers when they took on the Sunwolves in their Super Rugby encounter at DHL Newlands. The DHL Stormers played with full force, showing great defence tactics and an outstanding performance overall. Springbok newcomer, Dillyn Leyds was ablaze with two tries and gave up his third opportunity to former Blitzbok, Cheslin Kolbe, letting him score his second consecutive Super Rugby hat-trick. The DHL Stormers also walked away with the Super Rugby Africa Conference 1 trophy.
Treble was amped to return to DHL Newlands and oversee the DHL activations. We were especially proud of the DHL Stormers’ grand entrance, ensuring that they arrived in style with their newly-branded DHL Bus. We had been working alongside DHL for a few days to rebrand the team’s wheels, representing WP Rugby’s new message of, “We Stand Together.”
Treble hosted the DHL Couch Experience winners, on behalf of DHL Africa, who were joined by SA Rugby Legend, Tonderai Chivhanga, courtesy of Brightrock, making this experience an even more memorable one. Our team of professionals were back on the field at halftime and successfully managed the DHL Halftime Run Challenge. Five lucky contestants got to charge across the field and back for a cash prize of R1,000, courtesy of DHL Africa.
We activated the exclusive PostNet Kids Signing Session with the after the match, where twenty lucky kids from Silverlea Primary School had the opportunity to meet and greet DHL Stormers players and get their t-shirts signed on the field. An exciting introduction to the world of rugby!
The DHL Newlands food and beverage solution was also taken care of in the usual seamless and successful fashion. The stadium bars and kiosks were bustling with thirsty and hungry fans and we and our vendors delivered generously. The 100’s Bar and exclusive Club Newlands Lounge were crowded with patrons, regular and new.
Treble was extremely excited to be amidst the Super Rugby action at DHL Newlands and we are proud of the DHL Stormers’ achievement. We now look ahead to the quarterfinal taking place at DHL Newlands on Saturday, July 22, 2017, where we will continue to provide world-class activation and food-and-beverage excellence.
