Springbok support on a budget

By Staff Writer
It has become somewhat of a norm to walk into any place of business on a Friday and be greeted with a sea of green and gold, as South Africans rally behind the Springboks leading up to the 2015 Rugby World cup kick-off this evening. So for those of you still wanting to get in on the patriotic action we have a few suggestions for you that won’t break the bank.

As you may know a standard Bok jersey currently retails at stores like Sportsman’s Warehouse ranging from R549 – R1300. Popular online stores are no cheaper with jerseys retailing for R749 on Zando and R379 on Takealot.com. This for many is not feasible, especially if there are a few supporters within a household.

Here are some cheaper alternatives

They may not be the real deal, but they are certainly cheaper and easier on your budget.

Perkal Gifts  R131,98 http://www.perkalgifts.co.za/-p-158083.html
PnP Clothing R80 – R179 http://www.picknpay.co.za/springbok-supporters-gear
Makro R159 – R200 http://www.pricecheck.co.za/search?search=springbok+shirt
 
So now that you look the part, we suggest you go out and share the ‘gees’ by visiting any one of the free local fan parks in and around your city. Traveller 24 has highlighted a few here.

If the above still proves a challenge, rather go for accessories such as a beanie and scarf set which can retail for as little as R129, 99 or peak caps which can cost anything from R89,99 on websites like PnP Clothing. Alternatively, just raid your closet for anything green and gold, sit back with some biltong and beer and enjoy the game from the comfort of your own home.
