Cape Town - The Premier Soccer League together with sponsors, MTN have announced that the Mbombela Stadium will host the 2016/17 MTN8 final on Saturday, October 1.

The match will kick-off at 17:00.

This is the first time that the Mbombela Stadium will host a MTN8 final. It has been three years since Mbombela hosted a domestic Cup final – back in December 2013.

The Premier Soccer League acting Chief Executive, Mato Madlala said she was expecting the people of Mpumalanga and other surrounding areas rally behind the event.

"As the League, it is in our interest to ensure that we spread football to different parts of the country to give our supporters an opportunity to watch Cup finals and we are excited to announce that Mbombela Stadium will host this season’s MTN8 final. We would like to thank the different stakeholders in the city of Mbombela who, firstly, showed interest and cooperation in our discussions. We are looking forward to what we hope will be a great Cup final on October 1. We also want to thank our partners, MTN for their support," Madlala said.

Tickets for the MTN8 final will be sold at TicketPro outlets throughout the country. The PSL will communicate ticketing information in due course.
