The majestic 2010 World Cup venue, the Moses Mabhida Stadium in Durban, will host this year’s special edition of the 2017 Nedbank Cup final on 24 June.

This was confirmed through a draw on Monday night by the Premier Soccer League (PSL), together with sponsor Nedbank.

According to the draw, the Nedbank Cup semi-finals will see Chippa United FC playing against host and defending champions SuperSport United, while Lamontville Golden Arrows will play host to Orlando Pirates.

It is reported that the Road to Durban Countdown has started as a contribution to the tourism and entertainment sectors in an effort to make this year’s Nedbank Cup final more than just about the 90 minutes of football.

“The PSL and Nedbank want to make the 2017 edition of the Nedbank Cup final special – after all, we are celebrating ten years of a wonderful partnership,” PSL acting chief executive Mato Madlala was quoted by M-Sports Marketing as saying.

“The Moses Mabhida Stadium is one of the country’s most iconic venues and we have hosted some historic finals there.

“From today, we will intensify planning to ensure we deliver a spectacular world class event. Good luck to the four clubs that have qualified for the semi-finals.”

Madlala’s sentiments were echoed by Thulani Sibeko, group executive for marketing, communications and corporate affairs at Nedbank.

Sibeko urged fans to purchase their tickets early, particularly because the final will have unrivalled entertainment and giveaways for supporters.

Nedbank have purchased 10 000 tickets from the PSL for the final, which will be sold exclusively to Nedbank clients for only R10 a ticket – a discount of over 80% in value to the ticket price.

Active Nedbank account holders can purchase two tickets per person at TicketPro outlets.

The PSL further pro­mised to communicate all other ticket pricing and information in due course.
