Newlands, Cape Town – This past weekend saw the start of the Castle Lager Rugby Championship, with the Springboks kicking-off at Nelson Mandela Stadium on Port Elizabeth. Our Boks continued their winning streak with another outstanding win. Treble Group and the Official Springbok Supporters’ Club also made sure that Springbok faithful all over South Africa could enjoy the action at Boktown.
Springbok supporters who are not able to attend the games arrive in numbers to support the Boks at key venues across the country. Treble’s activation of Boktown delivers a unique experience that offers supporters the best alternative to being at the tests with live entertainment, affordable food and beverage and fun competitions, activities and giveaways, in and around a live screening of the game. We have also partnered with the SA Rugby Legends Association and MyPlayers to invite seasoned rugby legends and current rugby stars to meet and greet supporters at Boktown. And, of course, we invite Bokkie – the official Springbok mascot – to entertain the kids (and parents!).
As part of their sponsorship of Boktown, PostNet giveaway two brand-new Asics Springboks jerseys to two of the Best Dressed patrons at each and every Boktown. Thank you to PostNet for the awesome prizes.
We were delighted to be joined by none other than Springboks Captain, Warren Whiteley at Boktown Montecasino, who gave great insight into the action during his Q&A sessions. Thank you to MyPlayers for inviting Warren, and for inviting Howard Mnisi (Xerox Golden Lions), Roelof Smith and Adriaan Strauss (Vodacom Blue Bulls), Tersius Marmaan, Vuyo Mboto and Warren Williams (Griffons), Nizaam Caar (DHL Western Province) and former Blitzboks star, Zain Davids. We are also thankful to the SA Rugby Legends Association for allowing us to host Boktown favourite, Gerrie Germishuys, and for welcoming Krynauw Otto and Marius Joubert.
We hailed the return of Boktown to Cape Town this weekend, activating at the Slug & Lettuce River Club, which hosted over 300 supporters. We were thrilled to partner with Heart FM who provided the live entertainment. The event was MC’s by Heart FM sports presenter, Tapfuma, and the DJ’ing was taken care of my popular radio personality, Suga. We thoroughly enjoyed working with Heart FM and are extremely grateful to River Club and Slug & Lettuce for the awesome venue.
Treble would like to thank Tsogo Sun and Slug & Lettuce River Club for the awesome venues. We are also honoured to work with industry giants like Mango Airlines and PostNet. These partners have made a fantastic contribution to the ongoing success of Boktown. We are all looking forward to welcoming supporters to Boktown on September 30, when the Springboks face Australia on home soil.
