Vodacom Super Rugby returns with more Marvel magic
Inspired by Captain America, Thor, Spider‐Man and Black Panther, South African rugby fields will come to life with more super hero action from 31 January as Vodacom Super Rugby, one of the toughest competitions in the world, continues its collaboration with Marvel.
We have a new generation of rugby heroes in South Africa ready to make their mark in Vodacom Super Rugby in 2020. With three new coaches and a host of exciting new players stepping up to the plate, it’s clear that the four South African franchises intend to build on what the Springboks achieved last year.
We’ve seen a re-energised enthusiasm for rugby in South Africa in recent months and that excitement spills over into Vodacom Super Rugby which will continue to impress us with breathtaking rugby played by the best teams and players in the Southern Hemisphere.
The South African franchises will yet again show their support for the real super heroes of the CHOC Childhood Cancer Foundation, with their #TacklingCancer initiative.
Vodacom and SuperSport will jointly donate R100 for every tackle by a South African player during the 2020 Vodacom Super Rugby competition. And this year, fans will also have the opportunity to contribute to this great cause as R1 will be donated to CHOC for every Vodacom Super Rugby ticket purchased.
Additionally, Vodacom will have a multitude of out-of-this-world stadium activations involving fans, players and celebrities all aimed at raising even more money for CHOC this season.
This will indeed be another season in which heroes in all forms will be celebrated – from the rugby players as the heroes on the field, to the fans for their loyal support, and then our real-life heroes from CHOC.
The response to the 2019 season was phenomenal, bringing the inspiration of some of Marvel’s most iconic, loved and recognizable characters to the thrills and excitement of this tournament. We certainly look forward to joining families across the country this coming year to witness all the skill, speed, agility strength, endurance, honour and strategy that brings this collaboration to life in an even more spectacular 2020 season.
