Newlands, Cape Town – The Currie Cup was back at the iconic DHL Newlands rugby stadium this past weekend as DHL Western Province played against the Xerox Golden Lions. We once again witnessed an astonishing performance from DHL WP with a 39-3 win!
Treble’s events and communications teams continued their high standard of delivery. The Club Newlands Lounge and 100s Bar were both open to supporters and patrons for pre-match drinks before kick-off, and we made sure that all the stadium bars and food kiosks were ready to take care of fans for food and drink! We were delighted to see both new and old faithful supporters cheering up and backing their team.
Our events team delivered another classic DHL Half-Time Run Challenge. The DHL contestants delivered the half-time entertainment for the crowd as they completed against each other for the R 1,000 grand cash prize. Congratulations to Richard Gysen for walking away as the Man of the Run.
“It was really excellent. I had so much fun on and off the field,“ said Gysen. “It was awesome being on the pitch. It was like being right next to the players. I will never forget this.”
The DHL Couch Experience winners were treated to an exclusive VIP food and bar and were spoiled with all kinds of treats before heading to the field for an exclusive live couch experience.
The evening proceeded in a well-heeled manner with the exclusive PostNet Kids Signing Session. We were delighted, as always, to see the warm smiles on the kids’ faces as they made their way onto the hallowed DHL Newlands pitch to meet and greet the players. We love working with PostNet to bring kids from our community closer to rugby and in bringing hope, inspiration and making some of their dreams come true!
It was another exciting weekend at DHL Newlands! The Treble team is proud to work with Western Province Rugby, DHL and PostNet to deliver sport and entertainment excellence for the Currie Cup.
