Maritzburg United striker Judas Moseamedi put his mother Ellen on a plane for the first time to come and watch the Telkom Knockout final against Mamelodi Sundowns.
Moseamedi's mother and his uncle Simon arrived in Durban on a flight from Johannesburg on Thursday and booked in at a hotel ahead of the showpiece at Moses Mabhida Stadium on Saturday (18h00).
This is the first time the Limpopo-born striker's mother has travelled on a plane.
"She is in town [Durban] with my uncle," Moseamedi tells KickOff.com.
"They have always been coming to watch our games when we play in Limpopo. I just decided that it will be nice if I made her year special by getting her and my uncle for the first time on a flight for the final here in Durban.
"She will be at the stadium tomorrow."
Moseamedi knows what silverware tastes like having won the 2016 Telkom Knockout final with Cape Town City.
