Treble honours Club Newlands & WP Rugby sponsors in an evening of appreciation and song

Green Point, Cape Town – Treble Group, in partnership with Club Newlands and Western Province Rugby, managed an evening of song and socialising at the Grand Café & Beach last night, to show appreciation to our sponsors.

We invited the full DHL Stormers team to mingling with the sponsors, partners and WP Rugby exco and management before the event was opened by Supersport presenter and rugby commentator Matthew Pearce.

President of Western Province Rugby Football Union, Thelo Wakefield, delivered a powerful message to the team and guests, conveying a heartfelt thank you to all the sponsors, which include DHL, Brightrock, Peninsula Beverages, Deep Heat, The Entertainer, SAB, Oude Molen, Postnet, Cell C and Tsogo Sun.

Coach Robbie Fleck, affectionately known as ‘Fleckie,’ then took the stage to give the audience a season overview, where he highlighted the importance of giving the younger players in the squad more game time during Super Rugby. The coach also talked the crowd through how far the team has come and his vision for the 2017 squad.

The Q&A session that followed with flanker Siya Kolisi, wing Damian De Allende and lock Eben Etzbeth highlighted each player’s spirit, ability and support of each other as teammates, the latter sentiments emphasized by Kolisi when he expressed how important it is for him to provide support to his teammates on the field.

Treble invited local Afro-operatic pop sensations Gugulethu Tenors, who wowed audiences with their impressive vocals and energetic renditions of South African classics like ‘Pata Pata,’ ‘The Click Song,’ ‘Meadowlands’ and the ever patriotic ‘Nkosi Sikelele Afrika.’ We appointed the catering team at the Grand to present an excellent feast and first-rate service to our valued guests.

The vibe carried on until late into the night with the players, management and sponsors consorting on the sand under the stars celebrating their alignment and the 2017 season going forward.

Treble would like to extend our sincere thanks to the world-class sponsors and partners with whom we have the honour to work. We look forward to activating with you in 2017!

Treble kicks off 2016 with a Bright new sponsorship

The Treble Group is proud to announce that life insurance player; BrightRock has signed a three-year Official Associate Sponsorship agreement with DHL Stormers and DHL Western Province, effective from January 2016.

BrightRock has rapidly established itself as one of the fastest-growing players in the intermediated individual life market in South Africa.

According to BrightRock executive director Suzanne Stevens, the partnership echoes the company’s strong performance to date and will help grow the awareness of its brand among consumers in its target market.

Stevens commented: “We’re thrilled to be involved with two of South Africa’s most beloved rugby properties and helping to bring top-class rugby action to such a large, diverse and passionate fan base across South Africa”.

BrightRock’s involvement as a business sponsor for the DHL Western Province and DHL Stormers teams will be visible in the DHL Newlands stadium and the BrightRock logo will proudly appear on the back of all match-day jerseys.

Treble conceptualised, marketed and ultimately secured the BrightRock sponsorship opportunity. The collaboration seemed a good fit as the insurance player required a sporting property which could give them the branding and experiential platform to launch their brand to the broader South Africa market.

Treble Group’s Managing Director, Kyle Nel, has a long standing relationship with Suzanne Stevens. Together, Treble and BrightRock reviewed a number of opportunities. Ultimately the WP Rugby and BrightRock association has presented a strategic fit as to where BrightRock is with their current brand and business strategy.

We look forward to working with the dynamic BrightRock team on this exciting new venture.

Treble delivers the President’s Cup Finals at DHL Newlands

A lively crowd was treated to four fantastic matches in the President’s Cup Finals Day at DHL Newlands on Saturday, October 4th, as the 2014 Western Province Club Rugby season finished on a high. Thanks to WP Rugby, SAB and the Treble Group, club rugby returned to DHL Newlands in fine style and the seven clubs in action did not disappoint on the day as all four finals produced outstanding matches.

The crowd, too, played their part with many of the fans vying for the R30000 worth of prizes and prize money for the best dressed super fan! These winners each walked away with amazing prizes, while the club with the most support, Franschhoek RFC, walked away with a prize to the value of R5000 from SAB.

It was a great day of rugby at DHL Newlands and massive congratulations to Dur-Bell RFC who beat Belhar RFC 20-11 in the Super League A final and ultimately, walking away with the Grand Challenge trophy.

Afterwards, the Rugby Championship Test match between the Springboks and All Blacks were showcased on the Castle Lawns, celebrating the rugby “gees” which was the main winner of the day.

WRAP-UP:

U20 President’s Cup Final:
After a season showcasing the strength of WP Club Rugby’s youth teams, Durbanville-Bellville once again showed their depth sending as their Under-20 side beat False Bay 27-20. False Bay RFC was rewarded with a R1500 cash prize and winners Durb-Bell R3000.

Super League C Final:
The President’s Cup has been an emotional lifeline for some clubs, notably Langa RFC who failed to make promotion this year, but nevertheless contested well during the knockouts. The day at DHL Newlands saw a mighty tussle between log winners Franschhoek RFC and Langa RFC with plenty of running rugby. Franschhoek RFC showed their mettle winning 44-34 and a cash prize of R10000. Langa RFC received a R5000 reward for their efforts.

Super League B Final:
Villager’s have been a dominant force all year, and proved as much with their promotion back into Super League A. After Millerton’s disappointment in the league – ending fourth and missing promotion – they were thrilled to still have the opportunity to challenge for silverware. The first half played out very even with the teams going into half-time deadlocked at 10-10. However, the underdogs, Milnerton RFC led by captain Eddie Theron, came out on top winning 25-15 and, with it, a cash prize of R20000.

Super League A Final (Grand Challenge):
Coach Jan Loubser and captain Alconray Botha were both ecstatic as Durb-Bell won the Super League A Grand Challenge at DHL Newlands. Belhar RFC took the early lead but Durb-Bell clawed their way back into the game going into the break 13-8. The second saw Durb-Bell with a touch more composure and eventually took the title 20-11 along with the R30000 prize money. Belhar received a R15000 bonus for their efforts.
