Super 14: Sharks thank their fans

Butch James with young fan

Sharks Open Day, meet and greet the fans!

It's great to see South African teams making the effort to interact with their fans.

Nothing sticks in a young boy or girl's mind more than meeting their sporting heroes. Lifelong fans are created instantly with so little effort or cost to the union.

Congratulations to the Sharks for putting together what sounds to be a very exciting day. Full details below.

The third Sharks Open Day is being held on 21 January 2006 from 11am to 3pm at The Absa Stadium Durban - the home of the Sharks. This very special event gives the Sharks players an opportunity to thank their loyal fans and supporters for their unyielding support.

The Open Day also fulfils multiple roles for existing fans and introduces potential fans to the safe, friendly, family-orientated focus of the Sharks. Fans are encouraged to pack a picnic basket and head on down to the Stadium for a completely free day of fun and festivities. There will be plenty of parking available, and the elderly and physically challenged will be catered for.

The many events and activities planned for the public's enjoyment include a signing session which affords fans the opportunity for some one-on-one interaction with the Sharks players.

Children will also have opportunities throughout the day to compete in kids' races and tug-o-war with the Sharks players. Other activities on offer include a live performance by Melanie Louw, face painting, pony rides, a performance by Dilly the Clown, a jumping castle, a colour maze, stadium tours and so much more.

Children who participate in the activities will qualify for prizes and give-aways throughout the day so that they leave with happy memories of a wonderful day out with the Sharks players.

Also, for the first time at a Sharks Open Day, potential Flasher Girls will be put through their paces to determine who will qualify to be a 2006 Flasher Girl. The finalists selected will be awarded “Flasher Girl” titles and will then appear at the Sharks 2006 rugby matches to "flash" and entertain the Sharks fans. Sharkie and Roland will be at the Open Day too, to make it a truly exciting event.
Well if my kid knew about the Sharks, it would definately have been a treat for him.

(Unfortunately I don't want to scare this early in his life, so I haven't spoken of the Sharks yet)


OK alle grappies op 'n stokkie. Great going Sharks. This is why you are supported so widely throughout the country.
Another good PR exercise.

I like it.

BTW, I dunno about the Sharks - apparently they're already whining about the possibility of being relegated and fighting in court.

However this morning on the radio interview with Frans Ludeke he said that it was soimething they had to live with and his job was to make sure his players focus on winning every match they play and they cannot worry about relegation.

Seems the Cats are being pretty mature about it too.
