Toyota Cheetahs Currie Cup
12:51 (GMT+2) Tue, 02 Jul 2019
Venue: Central South Africa
A team is more than the 15 players on the field; more than the replacements on the bench, the coaches, staff and sponsors. It’s you on your feet in the stand, shouting at home, or even viewing abroad. It’s every supporter; every person whose heart beats orange.
Be part of the Cheetahs’ journey this season
#CurrieCupReloaded will see the Toyota Free State Cheetahs will take on the Blue Bulls, Griquas, Golden Lions, Sharks, Pumas, and Western Province from July 13 to September 7, 2019.
The competition has been moved to an earlier time slot in the season which means that the Currie Cup Premier Division will not overlap with the Rugby World Cup, Super Rugby or the PRO14.

Castle Deck hosts pub lunches to help you catch the winning feeling on Fridays. Like the Cheetahs’ Facebook page to stay updated.
