Saturday, 18 May 2019: This is the date that many within the TS Galaxy camp believe has been pre-ordained by the football gods for their encounter with destiny when they face Kaizer Chiefs in the Nedbank Cup final.
The PSL confirmed today that the Nedbank Cup final will kick off at 19h00 at Moses Mabhida Stadium on 18 May 2019.
Ticket are now sale. They are selling at only R60 for adults. A limited number of tickets are available for children under the age of 12 at R15 at TicketPro outlets including Spar, Edgars, CNA, Postnet and Jet.
Football supporters are encouraged to purchase their tickets early to avoid disappointment as this final is bound to be a sold-out affair.
Dan Malesela, the TS Galaxy coach, has spoken about a strong determination inside his camp to claim a Nedbank Cup trophy at their first attempt. As a man who played for some of the country’s decorated outfits, he is a man acquainted with success.
However, for TS Galaxy, the Nedbank Cup final is uncharted territory. After all, this is their debut season in the professional ranks.
Their opponents Kaizer Chiefs have been journeyman of the competition. Not only have they reached a number of cup finals, they managed to win the trophy back in 2013.
On paper Chiefs will be pencilled in as favourites but Galaxy have shown that they are not going to Moses Mabhida to be passive observers. They proved their capabilities against an organised Golden Arrows, a side that is known for its organised structure.
