MTN 8 final venue confirmedBy MTHULISI SIBANDA
JOHANNESBURG, (CAJ News) – THE Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium in Port Elizabeth will host the MTN8 final.
Premier Soccer League Chief Executive Officer, Brand de Villiers confirmed the decision to play the decider at the historic 46 000-capacity venue.
“We are pleased to announce that the Nelson Mandela Bay will host this year’s MTN8 final. There were a number of factors that influenced this decision including the response we got from the people of the Eastern Cape when we staged a Cup final there a few months ago,” he said.
De Villiers said he was hoping fans from all corners of the country will once again purchase their tickets early. Ticket prices will be R80 (for West Stand) and R40 (for the rest of the stadium).
They will be on sale at Computicket and Shoprite Checkers.“We have seen some impressive numbers in this year’s MTN8 competition when it comes to crowd attendance and we are anticipating another big turnout at the Nelson Mandela Bay on Saturday, 19 September 2015,” said de Villiers.
Last year, MTN8 final tickets for the match between Soweto rivals Kaizer Chiefs and Orlando Pirates at the Moses Mabhida Stadium in Durban were sold out in less than three hours.
Defending champions Chiefs will play Ajax Cape Town in this season’s edition. The MTN8 final will kick-off at 15h00.
