Johannesburg - The Premier Soccer League has confirmed that the grandstand tickets for Saturday’s MTN8 final between Kaizer Chiefs and Orlando Pirates at the FNB Stadium in Soweto have been sold out.

However, the PSL informed Soccer Laduma that there are still VIP tickets available for sale through sport and entertainment organisation SAIL.

Although the FNB Stadium has a maximum capacity of 94 000, the tournament sponsors and the PSL have only issued 78 000 tickets for the final, with the organisers expecting a full-house come game time.

Saturday’s game is scheduled to start at 20:15 although the gates will open at 16:00, as Soweto and the rest of the country prepares to come to a standstill for 90 minutes.

    PSl should consider changing times for their games from 20h00 on saturdays to 15h00. They are complaining that we do not fill the Stadiums but their times are not convinient for people to go to the games.We want to go, we want to take our kids out to this game. We cannot for our own safety and of our kids.Can someone please listen

      dont worry rams..in SA any time is not safe, you can be hijacked and robbed even in the morning or afternoon, any time is tea time for these criminals..and they pounce on you when you least expect it

      @vambohza - even though there is a criminal problem at the stadium, I think Rams is referring to unruly supporters. A game like this is a category A game (security risk rating), thats why they only released 78000 tickets. Plus because the game will at night people will come already drunk to the stadium. Getting out off the stadium is also a nightmare at such big games especially at night.
