Red letter day for Vodacom Bulls
Defending Vodacom Super Rugby champions, the Vodacom Bulls are back and will see Red this weekend.
The Vodacom Bulls return home to their base at Loftus Versfeld - the home of Vodacom Rugby in South Africa for the first time since Vodacom has rebranded and are gearing up for a celebration.
Yes for this game only, the Vodacom Bulls will paint Loftus Versfeld Red as Vodacom celebrates its rebranding with all the loyal Vodacom Bulls rugby supporters at the stadium.
On this joyous occasion, Vodacom will be celebrating with Vodacom Bulls supporters by giving out red t-shirts and limited edition Vodacom Bulls flags on the day so that April 30 is remembered as a Red letter day on the rugby calendar.
To take this celebration further, the Bulls will be playing in a red limited edition jersey designed just for the occasion. There will be only 22 of these jerseys produced for the players on this day.
Thanks to Vodacom, fans will be able to enter an in-stadium competition where they can win their favourite player's authentic used limited edition game-day jersey as a fabulous prize. All 22 game-day jerseys will be given away to lucky spectators - and you can only win if you are at the game.
"There has been much excitement surrounding Vodacom's change to red and we wanted to share this occasion with our rugby family at the Vodacom Bulls," Enzo Scarcella, Marketing Executive, Vodacom said.
"While the team's colours will forever remain blue, we are overjoyed that they have joined us to celebrate Red as Vodacom's bold new colours. We hope that everyone at Loftus Versfeld joins us on Saturday in making it a Red letter day."
To add to the celebrations, Vodacom will be commemorating the Vodacom Bulls' sensational victory over the Stormers in last year's Super 14 final by bringing Orlando to Loftus.
As this game is almost a year to the day that Orlando opened their hearts to the Vodacom Bulls on their way to the title, Vodacom wants to bring that Orlando magic back to Loftus!
500 lucky fans, chosen through local radio stations, will win themselves an all-expenses paid trip to the game against the Chiefs.
This VIP trip includes a bus trip to & from Loftus, snack pack & lunch, match ticket, Vodacom hamper with t-shirt/flag & rugby quiz where they have a chance to win an HTC Wildfire.

Vodacom notice - Phishing
Vodacom has recently been made aware of some customers receiving fraudulent emails claiming to be from Vodacom and asking for updated contact information. The mails may even look authentic and contain the Vodacom logo and corporate colours.
Note: Vodacom won't ever ask for personal information over email.
These are scams commonly known as 'phishing' and all Vodacom customers should take note of the following before responding to an email from a site asking for personal information.
- Check that the email address and the sender name match.
- Hover over (but do not click) any links to check if the address matches the link that was typed in the message.
- Make sure that the email address or phone number listed in the email is the same as the one that should be on that company's records.
- Does the message start with a generic greeting, like "Dear customer." Most legitimate companies will include the recipient's name in their messages
