The Cape Town Stadium Rugby Festival, which features a warm-up game for the Super 14 side the Vodacom Stormers, takes place on February 6, 2010.

The Stormers will take on a Boland Invitational XV in the first full rugby match to be played at the magnificent new R4.5-billion venue.

A celebrity 10s match will take on an International Legends 10s outfit in the main curtain-raiser, and top South African band Flat Stanley will perform before the main event.

The Vodacom Stormers are preparing for the new Super 14 season and will have in their ranks new recruits wing Bryan Habana and centre Jaque Fourie. These world-class talents join the likes of Schalk Burger, Andries Bekker, Juan de Jongh and Duane Vermeulen in an exciting squad for 2010.
