Samsung Electronics South Africa has made the decision to sponsor the Vodacom Bulls. In addition to the sponsorship, the company will be erecting a Samsung showcase at Loftus Versfeld for every game hosted by the Blue Bulls. This will enable supporters to experience Samsung’s LED 3D TV.
Samsung Electronics South Africa continues to bring fun and entertainment to the rugby season of the reigning Super 14 Rugby champions, the Vodacom Bulls, by sponsoring the team.
Through this sponsorship, this season, Samsung will be erecting a Samsung showcase at Loftus Versfeld for every game hosted by the Blue Bulls Company – where supporters will have the opportunity to experience Samsung’s LED 3D TVs first hand. In addition to this, throughout the Vodacom Super 15 and Absa Currie Cup rugby seasons, Samsung will be hosting a competition, ‚Meet Your Match With Samsung‚ , whereby fans will have the opportunity to win an assortment of prizes, including a chance to watch the Vodacom Bulls play live from the north west side on the actual field during all Vodacom Super 15 games hosted by the Blue Bulls Company and a grand prize: a trip of a lifetime for you and a partner to go on tour with the Vodacom Bulls to New Zealand or Australia during the 2012 Super 15 rugby season.
Corrie Labuschagne, Product and Marketing Manager for TVs at Samsung South Africa says: ‚Watching rugby is a long standing tradition in South African history and culture. If we think back to the 1995 World Cup – which South Africa hosted and won – the world’s eyes were on us then and they have shuddered to blink since, whenever a South African team takes to the rugby field. In the spirit of this, we took up a three year sponsorship of the Vodacom Bulls in 2010 to create more synergy between the two brands that represent a much loved South African passed-time and the distinctive experience of watching South African rugby on a Samsung TV. Our aim with this sponsorship is to assure those rugby fans that may not be lucky enough to win tickets, that they too can watch their favourite team play on TV ‚ whether in a sports bar or from the couch at home ‚ while still enjoying the complete immersive and entertaining experience as they would watching from the stands.
