On Friday (26/01) the Premier Soccer League announced the countrywide sale of tickets for this year’s Nedbank Cup championship.

Tickets for the 2017-’18 Nedbank Cup round of 32 fixtures are now on sale.

Tickets are available at TicketPro outlets countrywide and are selling at R40 for adults and R15 for children younger than 12.

The championship, which is South Africa’s premier football tournament featuring clubs from across divisions, amateur to professional rank, is being held for the 11th time this year.

The tournament is famed for providing a platform for lower division clubs to make a name for themselves.

Bloemfontein Young Tigers, campaigning in the Free State stream of the Safa ABC Motsepe League, is one the lower clubs hoping to capitalise on the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to make a name in the competition, having qualified for the last-32 elimination stage.

The other clubs, also from the same rank, but different provinces, are Orbit College (North West), Swallows FC (Gauteng), Happy Wanderers (KwaZulu-Natal), Eastern Cape Bees (Eastern Cape), Steenburg United (Western Cape) and Phiva Young Stars (Mpumalanga), as well as Mariveni United (Limpopo) – a team which campaigns in the third-tier rank of the Safa SAB League.

The 32 remaining clubs in the competition will start playing their elimination games on Wednesday, 7 February, after the hosting venues have been announced. The two topflight Free State clubs, Bloemfontein Celtic and Free State Stars, will play host.
