South African rugby is entering a whole new universe in 2019 as Vodacom, Supersport, SA Rugby and Marvel team up to bring Super Heroes to life and create an all-conquering, planet-shifting, villain-busting 'Superpowered' Vodacom Super Rugby competition. Some of Marvel’s most iconic Super Heroes have joined forces with South Africa’s most powerful rugby stars to turn every one of the South African derbies in the 2019 Vodacom Super Rugby season into an action-packed adventure in and outside the stadiums.
In a ground-breaking collaboration between SA Rugby, SuperSport, Vodacom and Marvel, each of the South African Vodacom Super Rugby teams has been assigned a Marvel Super Hero as their look for the home derbies this season.
The Vodacom Bulls kit will be emblazoned with the colours of Captain America, the Emirates Lions will channel their inner-Spider-Man, the Cell C Sharks’ kit will be inspired by Black Panther and the DHL Stormers will be wearing Thor’s colours.
