PSL want Soccer City sell out
Johannesburg - PSL chief executive Kjietil Siem is hopeful that Soccer City will see a sell-out crowd when AmaZulu and Wits go head-to-head in the Nedbank Cup final on Saturday.
Despite the two sides only managing to pull in meagre crowds compared to the likes of Orlando Pirates, Kaizer Chiefs and Mamelodi Sundowns, Siem expects fans to turn out in their numbers to witness the 'historic opening' of the 94 000-seater.
Siem told IOL: "We have sold between 35 000 and 40 000 so far. We hope to sell more this week.
"I don't think we would have reached that figure, with these teams in the final, had this match been played anywhere else.
"People are interested in being part of the historic opening of Soccer City. We sold tickets way before we knew who was going to be in the final.
"We are happy to focus on that - the opening of the stadium. Of course we would have a sellout crowd if some of the top teams had qualified, but we can't dictate or predict who would be in the final."
