Bucs communications manager Mickey Modisane has confirmed that the no more tickets are available for the showpiece event and warned those fans who do not have tickets not come near the stadium as they have stringent security measures in place.
More than 3 000 international dignitaries are expected in the Natal coastal resort city and the Bucs v Amakhosi game is to be televised worldwide.
“We want to appeal to those fans that failed to get tickets to stay at home and watch the game on TV. The good news for fans in Kwazulu Natal is that the provincial government has set up big screens in designated areas where the game will be shown live,” Modisane adds.
“This game will not only involve the pride for the two teams but will be an advert to soccer fans around the world that South Africa has the capability to host the 2010 World Cup.”
Modisane’s appeal for discipline among the fans has been supported by both clubs’ No 1 supporters, Saddam Maake and Mzion Mofokeng who also urged supporters to arrive early to the stadium.
“Both Pirates and Chiefs will be the country’s ambassadors on Saturday and our plea to supporters is respect the outcome of the result. Let us go out there and show the world that we are passionate about our football and blow those vuvuzelas.”
