There is simply nothing to match the Carling Currie Cup in world rugby. The Currie Cup, which is considered as one of the world’s oldest domestic rugby competition, has built a legendary legacy over 130 years of thrilling tries, bone-crunching tackles, and nail-biting finishes, becoming a cornerstone of South African culture.
No stranger to the sporting arena, with its highly successful relationship with the Premier Soccer League, the award-winning Carling Black Label brand has the storied history to compete with the Carling Currie Cup. Just one year on from taking on the sponsorship, Africa’s biggest and most awarded beer, together with supporters, is bringing the biggest innovation to the competition since it kicked off in 1891.
This Carling Currie Cup season was an exciting showcase of attacking rugby, following the trend of recent campaigns. The Cell C Sharks and Vodacom Bulls emerged from the group stages and semifinals to put on another tumultuous final game at Loftus Versveld where The Vodacom Bulls were crowned as back-to-back Carling Currie Cup champions– a fitting end to the season that bodes well for the South African teams in the upcoming United Rugby Championship.
Building on this season’s momentum, Carling Black Label is offering fans the opportunity to play selector and choose a team to take to the field in a historic Champions Match against a soon-to-be-revealed opposition on 6 November 2021.
Players from all seven of the unions campaigning in the Currie Cup Premier Division – Bulls, Sharks, Sigma Lions, DHL Western Province, Toyota Cheetahs, Tafel Lager Griquas, and New Nation Pumas – are eligible for selection. Sporting fans should brace themselves for an exciting team of fan favourites to battle in a showcase of exhilarating rugby!
