Certain roads in the Cape Town city centre are to be closed ahead of, and during, the DHL Stormers' celebratory victory parade on Friday.

From Thursday night to Friday lunchtime several streets in the CBD will be affected (see below).

The team 'stormed' to an outstanding victory over the Bulls on Saturday night, taking home the much-coveted Vodacom United Rugby Championship trophy.

In honour of the win, the lads will be showcasing the silverware during a bus parade starting at the Grand Parade.

I invite everyone to join the parade on Friday. Let’s come out and show our appreciation for the champions.

This is a proud moment for Cape Town and it shows just how much Cape Town loves the DHL Stormers, and our sporting heroes that make us proud.
