Western Province staying put at Newlands
DHL Western Province president, Thelo Wakefield, has said that their decision not to relocate to the Cape Town Stadium will not be up for discussion.
Western Province Rugby Football Union (WPRFU) on Thursday announced that the Newlands Stadium in Cape Town will remain their headquarters for the “foreseeable future”.
WPRFU held a meeting earlier this week to discuss whether the team would relocate to the Cape Town Stadium. However, Wakefield, through the media, stated that this would not be the case.
"Should there ever be any further discussions (with the Cape Town City Council) then it will be initiated by us," Wakefield said.
"I want to make things clear: I'm not willing to go and 'squat' at the Cape Town Stadium while I have a top class property at my disposal.
"It's no use being told you're only a tenant or anchor tenant and then the definition of that is stipulated in three small lines of fine print. What is the definition of a 'partner in the ruling company'? It will basically relegate us to 'squatters',” he added.
Former Stormers and Springbok captain, Corné Krige, said: “I think it’s a terrible decision. Cape Town Stadium is an unbelievable venue. Western Province could sell Newlands for lots of money, and the new stadium is a lot more accessible to people and just a better all-round experience for fans.”
