The Free State Cheetahs management often receive questions from supporters and other interested parties. The questions vary from why the Toyota Cheetahs were ousted from the expanded PRO16 series in Europe, to the team’s performance, players, coaches, staff, commercial matters and what the future holds for the franchise.

We believe he speaks for the team and the coaching staff. This is also the long-term goal for the Cheetahs management team: to once again make the Free State Cheetahs a team to warm the hearts of their supporters, not only with match wins but dazzling running rugby.
Coach Hawies Fourie has signed up a number of very able and promising players and is now building the team with new talent and deep experience.

As keen and impatient as we all are, the reality is that a new international series requires several role players and decisions.

We sometimes underestimate the disruption caused by COVID-19 in usual business and timeframes. We hope to receive news soon.
