South Africans love their rugby and, as we have witnessed before, major sporting events bring us together as a nation. During this Rugby World Cup, let’s get together and support the South African team at Emerald Resort & Casino’s Rugby Fan Park.
On the 18th September, the Rugby World Cup 2015 kicks off in England. South Africa, in Pool B, takes on Samoa, Japan, Scotland and the USA before, hopefully, moving on into the knock out stages. All the South African games can be viewed on big screens at the Emerald Rugby Fan Park (in the atrium outside Sports Bar and Breeze Restaurant) as well as the quarter, semi and final games.
“In 1995, the entire country held its collective breath as Joel Stransky slotted his drop kick during extra time in the final and nearly everyone who saw this can, today, still tell you exactly where they were at the time,” says Tanuja Gangabishun, Marketing Executive at Emerald Resort & Casino. “This is how memories are made, when fellow supporters get together and celebrate one of our national sports.”
Over 18’s can enjoy the atmosphere and action in Sports Bar where a Superbru predictor game is currently running while the entire family of supporters are welcome at Breeze Restaurant. Each game will have its own food and beverage specials coupled with many giveaways and competitions.
One lucky fan will be walking away with “Beer for a Year” after the last game is played. Supporters at Sports Bar will receive a scratch card during each game and the winner will be selected by means of a random draw after the final on 31st October. Participants are required to be present to be eligible for the draw and prize and be over 18.
“It is going to be an amazing month and a half,” says Tanuja. “Come and support your favourite team with us at Emerald Resort & Casino. We’ll be supporting our boys in green and gold, where will you be?”
