Chiefs will host rivals Orlando Pirates at the FNB Stadium – the venue of the 2010 FIFA World Cup final — on Saturday, October 21. Kick-off is at 15h30 for the Soweto Derby.
Kaizer Chiefs announced on their official website that tickets for what is arguably the most marketable African derby was up for sale with the cheapest and usually unreserved seat costing R70 (about N1,800).
Level 1 reservations will cost R100 (about N2,600) while Level 5 will cost R170 (about N4,500).
Parking tickets cost R20 for general parking, R30 for transport hub, R40 VIP parking, R50 for minibus and R100 for bus.
The FNB Stadium, Africa’s largest stadium with a capacity of 94,736 is expected to be sold out for the showpiece as they battle early on.
While the South Africans have always been able to showcase the marketability of their league, other African nations have barely come close.
Nigeria’s Super Eagles, arguably the most popular national team in Africa, played their last World Cup qualifying game at home to Zambia on Saturday, but the NFF had the gate prices slashed by half from its usual N1,000 (about R39) to N500 (about R20) in order to have the 35,000 capacity Godswill Akpabio International Stadium filled up.
Despite being handed a $31,000 fine by FIFA for “crowd disturbances” following Nigeria’s 4-0 demolition of Cameroon at the same Venue last month.
