Bloemfontein is a sport-rich city with tradition and pride dictating proceedings on a weekly basis. Rugby and soccer are the areas where the interests lie and would no doubt be displayed on every single screen in The Loch Logan Waterfront from brunch to braai…

The Toyota Cheetahs have had a Super Rugby season they would best like to forget, however they have (as always) managed the scalps of a few of the bigger franchises (Stormers, that’s you) during 2015. With few local boys (Lood de Jager being the exception) likely to feature in the crux of Heyneke Meyer’s World Cup Squad, the Currie Cup would be where the focus will be.

Surely wanting to build on their victories over the Bulls and the Stormers/Western Province during Super Rugby, the Boys from Bloem will relish the two choice encounters against these two tough teams in August. The Pretoria outfit pays Free State Stadium a visit on the 8th of the month and Province pitches up a touch later on the 28th of August. Both matches will be humdingers with no inch asked or given.

On the soccer front, Free State Stars and Bloemfontein Celtic have both made promising player acquisitions leading into the next chapter of the PSL. Phunya Sele Sele (Bloem Celtic for the haters out there) welcome Platinum Stars to the Free State Stadium on the 23rd of August and Free State Stars prepare for battle with Mpumalanga Black Aces at Goble Park on August 8th.

In closing, make 100% sure you are prepped, ready and geared for the game you want to watch and note that whatever the need, you are sure to find it at Loch Logan Waterfront…
