Stormers' new home to be renamed DHL Stadium

31 Oct 2020, 20:13 GMT+10

WP Rugby's headline sponsor, DHL, has acquired the naming rights for Cape Town Stadium.

This was confirmed by Ian Neilson, deputy mayor of Cape Town Metro, on Friday.

"An agreement was reached at a council meeting this morning between the stadium and DHL," Neilson told Netwerk24 on Friday.

This means that from 1 January the stadium will be known as DHL Stadium for four years, with DHL paying R11 million a year for the naming rights.

WP Rugby will move from Newlands to Cape Town Stadium in 2021.

The stadium will host two matches during next year's British & Irish Lions tour, with the Stormers taking on the Lions on 3 July and the Springboks playing there in the second Test on 31 July.
