THE Southern Kings will be taking on the Cell C Sharks at the Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium this Saturday and residents of Nelson Mandela Bay and supporters of the Southern Kings are urged to #FillTheStadium.

The Executive Mayor of NMB, Athol Trollip, put a challenge to Kings supporters to come out and show their support for the Southern Kings.

“Our rugby team has, against all odds, done very well this season. Let’s get behind Eastern Cape rugby by filling our stadium on match day,” Trollip wrote on his Facebook page.

Southern Kings COO Charl Crous welcomed the call for supporters from all over to fill the Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium.

“The support the team has received since the Australian tour and victory against the Melbourne Rebels has been amazing. The Southern Kings’ performance has been influenced by the positive support the team has been receiving. If we see this support being converted to numbers that walk through our stadium gates, then we can be assured that the team will continue to make history on the field in the Vodacom Super Rugby competition.

“We are yet to see the number of supporters that we have translated to attendance numbers on our match days, but now we hope to see as many of our loyal fans filling the seats of our beautiful stadium in our remaining home matches,” Crous said.

The game starts at 5.15pm on May 13. The curtain-raiser will see the EP Kings play against the Border Bulldogs in the SuperSport Challenge at 2.30pm.

Tickets for the match are selling between R60 and R80 and can be bought from ticketpro at

There will also be live music and a number of food trucks will be selling food at the stadium.
