The Premier Soccer League (PSL) has made an urgent plea to the citizens of Cape Town to get involved in the Nedbank Cup final by temporarily adopting one of the teams for the final.
Both Maritzburg United and Free State Stars will travel over 1 000 kilometres each to the Cape Town Stadium where they will do battle in a historic Cup final – the first appearance by both sides in the Nedbank Cup since its inception.
The Nedbank Cup final will kick-off at 7pm on Saturday. There will however be entertainment before kickoff with a music concert set to take place from 5pm.
The Premier Soccer League Chief Executive Mato Madlala has appealed to football lovers to come enjoy quality football and also adopt one of the clubs for the day.
‘Fortunately for me, I don’t have to pick between these two quality clubs because they have both played amazing football to be here. But there is an opportunity for the people of the Western Cape to adopt a side and rally behind that club on Saturday. You have many elements on the day including the fact that you have a Cape Town-born Fadlu Davids coaching on his first Cup final in front of his home crowd. And, you have a Free State Stars that have shown a lot of guts to travel this far.
‘We need to ensure that people come in numbers and fill the Cape Town Stadium on Saturday evening. We are working closely with both Nedbank and the City of Cape Town to pull all stops ahead of the weekend.’
Head of sponsorship and cause marketing Tobie Badenhorst said: ‘The Nedbank Cup has, since inception, been a spectacular showcase of the quality of football prevalent in South Africa.’
‘We have stayed true to our commitment to take the Nedbank Cup final to the various 2010 FIFA World Cup venues for all to experience the fan fair and excitement that goes with this tournament. We call on all Capetonians to come out on Saturday and support domestic football.’
