Johannesburg - A number of roads around the FNB Stadium in Soweto will be closed due to the MTN8 semi-final between Kaizer Chiefs and Orlando Pirates on Saturday (kick-off is at 15:00), Johannesburg metro police said on Friday.

Nasrec Road, the Soweto Highway, and Rand Show Road would be closed on Saturday from 08:00 to 17:00, Chief Superintendent Wayne Minnaar confirmed.

Minnaar encouraged fans to arrive early.

People coming from Soweto were encouraged make use of the "Top 6" taxi association service from Soweto to the stadium.

The Gautrain bus shuttle service would operate from Park Station to the stadium, and the Metrorail train service would run from Pretoria and Vereeniging to the stadium.

Minnaar said parking tickets would be available on the Computicket website.
