The Sharks released a media statement denying any plans to move away from the ABSA Stadium.

Following today’s announcement on East Coast Radio, The Sharks wish to confirm that they will not be playing their Vodacom Super 14 rugby at the Moses Mahbida Stadium in 2010. The venue for all of their upcoming games will be The Absa Stadium Durban.

Brian van Zyl, Sharks CEO, stated: “I would like to reiterate what I said last year,that we are still in ongoing discussions with the City and at this point, no decisionhas been made whether or not to move across to the new stadium. For a decision to be made, we would need to have in-depth consultations with all the stakeholders, together with our equity partner Supersport.

The City has, however, put forward a request to The Sharks to play a friendly early next year at the new stadium in order to try out the field conditions. At this stage, nothing has been confirmed as we would still need to determine where we will be playing our pre-season warm-up games.”

    Daai nuwe stadions is mooi en smart en als maar hoekom kan die rugby nie maar net bly by Nuweland, Kings Park (of dan nou ABSA stadion…) Loftus nie?
    Die goed word mos gebou vir flippen sokker, hoekom kan die sokker met hulle spul hooligans nie net daar kyk nie en almal is gelukkig.
