SOWETO Rugby Club have no objection to the Bulls using their Orlando Stadium for the latter stages of the Super 14 competition, but they are not counting on any financial boost from the matches.
Zola Ntlokona, Soweto Rugby Club secretary and team manager, said yesterday that while the Super 14 game would be a tremendous opportunity to see top-class rugby in the township, the only people to benefit would be the stadium's owners and other business-related parties.
The Bulls, the Super 14 log leaders and defending champions, will not be able to use their home stadium, Loftus Versfeld in Pretoria, for the semis or final in May since it has been designated a "clean stadium" for the Fifa World Cup.
The Bulls said at the weekend that they had "agreed in principle" with the Orlando Stadium management to play the matches there.
"For a club like ours, living from hand to mouth, relying on loans and handouts, all we can say is 'whatever'," Ntlokona said.
"The matches will be good for those who will benefit from them, like the businesspeople who own the stadium, but we are far removed from that.
"There is no significance and no gain for our club." - Reuters
