Welcome to the Club Newlands website
Official Supporters Club to the DHL Stormers and WP teams.
We’re the team behind the team,
We’re the true blue and white believers,
We’re the couch commentators,
Win or lose, we back our boys 100%!
The aim of the club is to bring the fans closer to the players and coaching staff. We want our members to feel a part of the DHL Stormers and DHL WP Rugby teams by transcending the boundary between the stands and the DHL Newlands field. Club Newlands informs its members and DHL WP Rugby supporters of the upcoming events and all the latest DHL Stormers and DHL WP Rugby news, keeping members and fans #insidetheaction at all times!
Club Newlands was launched back in June 2003 and is 100% owned by WP Rugby (Pty) Ltd. The Club is based in Cape Town, but also host events for our members in other regions especially when our team visits the other provinces.
Steeped in history, heritage and pride, both teams play out of the historic DHL Newlands grounds, and are widely recognised as the best supported rugby union in the country. DHL Newlands has consistently brought an average of 36 000 faithful fans to the stadium for Super Rugby games, over the last 15 years!
Thanks to our committed sponsors, stakeholders, passionate supporters and loyal Club Newlands Members, we are able to continue to grow and bring new initiatives to the fore, creating new and exciting ways to bring the supporters closer to our teams.
Join Club Newlands today and become a part of the DHL Stormers and DHL WP Rugby family.
Pre-game celebrations are always FANtastic at the Castle Lawns!
Anyone attending DHL Newlands this year for a DHL Stormers or DHL WP match will have noticed the Castle Lawns @ Newlands. An area thriving with rugby fans getting to know each other and discussing the finer points of our great game over a cold Castle. It’s simply an amazing atmosphere with people from all walks of life congregating in one place with one thought in mind – a Stormers victory!
This diverse and knowledgeable fan base is known as the DHL Newlands Faithful, and the Castle Lawns is their club house. With bars and delicious food a plenty, the cozy, friendly atmosphere lends itself to the family environment that is quintessential to the DHL Stormers and their fans. You
can expect nothing more than a warm welcome as you walk down the stairs, even to those opposition fans that made the trip to DHL Newlands.
The Castle Lawns is a perfect way to start your day at the rugby. The amazing atmosphere resonates throughout the crowd and a great time is guaranteed. So next time you’re at DHL Newlands don’t miss out on this unique experience!
Getting to the Lawns
The entrance to the Castle Lawns is in Boundary Road opposite the Club Newlands Lounge entrance of the DHL Newlands Rugby Stadium.
What better place to relax before and after a home game at DHL Newlands than at the Club Newlands Members’ Lounge.
The bar is filled with Club Newlands Members who gather together to watch the DHL Stormers’ home games. Club Newlands organises regular promotions and functions for our members in the Lounge and if you’re lucky a player or two might drop in to say hello.
