SuperHero Sunday Rugby For Big And Small Superhero Fans
SA's top rugby teams, including the cup-winning Springboks, will don their special Marvel jerseys for this special day of rugby action
Super Rugby continues its partnership with Marvel Studios and presents the second edition of Superhero Sunday, a group of warm-up fixtures featuring all of South Africa's Super Rugby teams.
The festival of rugby takes place on 19 January but has been moved from the Cape Town Stadium to the FNB Stadium in Johannesburg.
These fixtures act as a warm-up before the start of the Super Rugby season, which kicks off on 31 January. You can plan your Super Rugby viewing with our comprehensive list of Super Rugby fixtures.

The DHL Stormers play the Cell C Sharks in the opening match followed by the Vodacom Bulls versus the Emirates Lions.
THE SUPERHERO KIT
The jersey designs reflect the superheroes that the teams represent, while also staying true to each team’s already iconic colour identity.
The new jerseys are inspired by Spider-Man, Thor, Black Panther and Captain America and this Marvel makeover makes its first public appearance at these two matches.
The Lions represent Spider-Man, The Bulls play as Captain America, The Stormers hit the field as Thor, and The Sharks transform to Black Panther.
SA Rugby, DStv, SuperSport, Marvel and Vodacom collaborated to create the new jerseys. The four SA teams will don the new-look jerseys during local derbies throughout the Super Rugby season but will wear their usual jerseys when playing international opposition.
Fans, check out our selection of places to watch the rugby.
