Cape Town - The Premier Soccer League (PSL) is calling on people from in and around Cape Town to adopt one of the two clubs that are going to battle it out for the Nedbank Cup final.

Both Maritzburg United and Free State Stars will travel over a 1 000 kilometres to the Cape Town Stadium where they will play in a historic Cup final – the first appearance by both sides in the Nedbank Cup since inception. 

The Premier Soccer League Chief Executive Mato Madlala has appealed to football lovers to come enjoy quality football and also adopt one of the two Clubs.

"Fortunately for me, I don’t have to pick between these two quality clubs because they have both played amazing football to be here.

"But there is an opportunity for the people of the Western Cape to adopt a side and rally behind that club on Saturday.

"You have many elements on the day including the fact that you have a Cape Town-born Fadlu Davids coaching on his first Cup final in front of his home crowd.

"And, you have a Free State Stars that have shown a lot of guts to travel this far.

“We need to ensure that people come in numbers and fill the Cape Town Stadium on Saturday evening.

"We are working closely with both Nedbank and the City of Cape Town to pull all stops ahead of the weekend."

The match will kick-off at 19:00 on Saturday, May 19 but before that, there will be a music concert starting at 17:00.
