January 3, 2019, Johannesburg, South Africa (Press Release) – South African rugby fans are excited by recent news that SA Rugby and Marvel have teamed up in a ground-breaking collaboration that matches each South African Super Rugby team with a Marvel superhero. For the home derbies next season, the teams will adopt new looks associated with Captain America, Spiderman, Black Panther and Thor.
South Africa’s Springbok Casino has put together a handy reference guide to the new superhero rugby teams. Their Marvel Superhero tribute is available at https://www.springbokcasino.co.za/super-rugby-marvel
“The Bulls, the Lions, the Sharks and the Stormers are all superheroes on the pitch,” said Springbok’s manager, Daniel van Wyck. “Now, with their new Marvel-inspired uniforms, they’ll really look the part!”
“Marvel Super Heroes are among the most loved and recognisable characters in the world, very much like local Super Rugby players and clubs,” said Luke Roberts, Retail Director for The Walt Disney Company Africa. “Whether it’s Spider-Man’s genius and agility, Thor’s strength and endurance, Captain America’s honour and strategy or Black Panther’s speed and stamina, we are thrilled to collaborate with clubs in this year’s South African Conference in Super Rugby.”
Proud and fearless, the Lions are the perfect match for Spiderman, one of Marvel’s most charming characters. The Vodacom Bulls will adopt a distinct Marvel look that will bring to life the iconic character of Captain America. For Super Rugby competition 2019, the Stormers’ kit will be emblazoned with the colours of Thor, Son of Odin, God of Thunder and Prince of Asgard.
