The Bloemfontein Crusaders Rugby Club in Heidedal will stage a victory parade to celebrate the Toyota Cheetahs’ historic win of the Currie Cup.

The parade will take place from 14:00 on Saturday (10/12) at the Clive Solomon Stadium.

The event forms part of the club’s family sports day with the theme “#Currie Cup Tours Heidedal”.

The parade will be a big bash to salute the Cheetahs’ historic achievement. The Free State giants finished their season on a high when they claimed a deserved 36-16 win over the Blue Bulls in the Currie Cup final in October in Bloemfontein.

The reigning champions finished the tournament undefeated. The result earns the home side their first title since 2007 and also marks their tenth straight win this season.

Ronald October of the Crusaders said the cup parade will be followed by the presentation of the prestigious trophy and players. He said the decision was to make the event a family funfare where children can see their heroes and be inspired to play sport.

“We are encouraging parents to bring their children. Rugby is a family sport and we strive to showcase the importance of sport in bonding families and helping children achieve their dreams,” said October.

Live performances by local artists and guest speakers are part of the event. People are advised to bring their own camp chairs and braai equipment. Those interested to participate in activities can contact Henry Geduldt on 084-899-5455.
