Orlando Pirates PRO Mickey Modisane has appealed to the fans to behave at the FNB stadium on Saturday.
Pirates will play against the archrivals Kaizer Chiefs and it is expected to be a sell-out. Modisane said: "What we can make an appeal for to our fans is for them to be at their best behaviour. This game will be broadcast not only in South Africa but also in other countries so we have to be ambassadors for the country," Modisane said. "Those who don't have tickets must not bother to come through because it causes unnecessary security risks and unnecessary pushing and shoving, that is not warranted from Orlando Pirates' side," he continued. Modisane further suggested that it will create the "best atmosphere" if there is no mixture of the supporters at the stadium. _quote
"Also, from the club's side the emphasis must be in relation to the sitting arrangements. There is nothing that creates the best atmosphere if you are able to tell between the Pirates and Chiefs supporters. So we request from Chiefs (as the home side) that the Pirates supporters know where they must be seated as well as the Chiefs supporters," Modisane added. Amakhosi's spokesperson Thebe Mohatle assured all concerned that Chiefs have a plan to separate the two set of supporters. "Our sitting arrangements are quite easy. Kaizer Chiefs supporters will be seated on the western and northern stands… the Pirates supporters will sit on the eastern and southern side of the stadium. We do, however, understand that you can occasionally see a mixture of supporters," Mohatle concluded.
