STATEMENT FROM THE SHARKS (PTY) LTD

This past Friday, after the conclusion of the Cell C Sharks vs. Pumas game there was an attempted mugging that occurred in a female toilet, at the stadium.

One of our female supporters who was in the toilet at the time, was accosted by man who wanted to rob her of her handbag.  Despite not resisting the suspect’s demand, the young lady was unfortunately injured during the altercation.

Medics treated the female supporter on scene and she was taken to a nearby hospital for treatment.

The Sharks CEO, Gary Teichmann, visited the young lady and her husband yesterday, and we are happy to advise that she is making good progress and has been discharged from hospital.  We wish her a speedy recovery.

The safety of our fans is of paramount importance to us and we view this incident in a serious light.  We will be working closely with our appointed security company and SAPS to ensure the safety of our fans throughout their visit to the stadium on matchdays.
