The President of the Blue Bulls Mr Willem Strauss told members of the press & digital media that the popular afrikaans hit song, written and performed by Steve Hofmeyr, has not been ‘banned’ at Loftus!
“it’s an awesome song…. is probably the most successful sporting anthem in the country.”
Strauss then went on to add the following remarks to his statement:
“We did however choose to mix-up our play lists a little, with the team running out to Queen’s classic Hit, “We will rock you”. We found it to be rather engaging, with some fans clapping and stamping along. It’s literally a case of trying something new”
The Bulls President denied that there was ever talks of barring the song from the playlist or break ties with Hofmeyr.
He ended off the conversation with the following:
“For the record, ‘Die Blou Bul’ was played twice during the Vodacom Blue Bulls vs Golden Lions game, and three times during the Vodacom Blue Bulls vs iCollege Pumas game mixed into a carefully selected playlist with other crowd-pleasing classics.”
