PSL tickets should cost R5 - Ncobo

Cape Town - Former Premier Soccer League (PSL) general manager Andile "Ace" Ncobo believes reducing ticket prices will improve attendances at league matches.

Speaking on the SuperSport magazine show Extra Time with Robert Marawa on Monday night, Ncobo said the current economic climate makes it difficult for fans to afford their necessities - and buy football tickets.

“It’s very difficult economically for people to pay for transport and food and still pay for the price of a ticket. I have always said rather sell a ticket at R5 and have 50 000 people attend than sell it for R50 and have 1 000 people,” said Ncobo.

PSL tickets currently cost in the region of R40 for the cheapest ticket option.

Marawa, in response to Ncobo's suggestion, challenged Cape Town City owner John Comitis to accept the 'R5 challenge' for their next home match.

Ncobo was a former FIFA referee and handled matches during the period 2000-2007. He also served as referee in the 2010 Soccer World Cup qualifiers.

If PSL football tickets were reduced to R5, would you be more likely to attend matches? Let us know at mysport@sport24.co.za
