The Premier Soccer League (PSL) has confirmed Moses Mabhida Stadium will host the 2017 MTN8 final between Cape Town City and SuperSport United on Saturday, 14 October 2017. The kick-off will be at 19:00.
The announcement would not have come as a surprise to many as Moses Mabhida has become the PSL finals venue of choice since it was built for the 2010 World Cup.
Also, City chairman John Comitis indicated that he was not going to accept a venue where SuperSport was going to drive to while his team was going to have to fly to leaving PSL with few choices.
PSL acting Chief Executive Mato Madlala said the decision was taken after consultations with all the stakeholders.
“There has been a lot of consultation in the last few days between the PSL, sponsors MTN and the two clubs to ensure that we go to a venue that will cater and serve the purpose of the occasion. We are happy that at the end of the day we agreed on Moses Mabhida as a venue. We are looking forward to the MTN8 Cup final in a months’ time.” Madlala said.
Consumer Business Executive at MTN SA, Mapula Bodibe said MTN will continue to make fans’ lives better through the Last Fan Standing competition.
“This year the tournament celebrates a decade by showing how MTN has and will continue to make football fans’ lives brighter through the Last Fan Standing competition. MTN8 is giving an opportunity for football fans to win prizes as well as take part in the ultimate LFS competition to stand a chance to win R 1 million cash and trip to Russia in 2018 with seven friends or family. In addition, MTN subscribers attending the MTN8 final will receive 500MB of free data at the stadium.” Bodibe said.
The League will communicate ticketing information in due course. Tickets will be available at TicketPro outlets at a cost of R40 for adults and R15 for children under the age of 12.
