The Vodacom Bulls have released a released a “Vintage” commemorative jersey to mark the 75th anniversary of their founding in 1938.
The jersey, which mimics the original Blue Bulls jersey, will be used in the two pre-season friendlies – against the MTN Lions at Orlando Stadium on Saturday and against the Toyota Cheetahs in Polokwane next weekend.
In addition, the jersey will also be used against the Cheetahs in the Super Rugby match on 13 April.
Fans will be able to buy replica jerseys as well as short and long-sleeved vintage polo shirts inspired by the original Bulls rugby jersey, sporting the 75th Anniversary badge and the Bulls logo.
“The jerseys and fanwear have the embroidered 75th Anniversary badge and numbers on the back have been executed in a very traditional way, bearing homage to the strong roots and traditions of the Bulls faithful,” said Brett Bellinger, PUMA South Africa’s Marketing Director.
“For 75 years the Northern Transvaal traditional outfit formed part of our rich history and this year we commemorate 75 years of tradition, team spirit, partnership, pride and success. May we all enjoy the 75th kit to honour our heroes of the past,” said Union President Louis Nel.
The jersey will cost R899 and will be available at selected stockists.
