Cape Town - The response to Cape Town’s tribute to Madiba at the Cape Town Stadium – Nelson Mandela: A Life Celebrated – has been overwhelming. With all available coupons for the event happening on Wednesday afternoon having been collected so quickly, the City is giving those who weren’t able to get coupons a chance to still witness the homage to Madiba by screening the event on the Grand Parade. The stadium event will be screened on the Grand Parade from 16:00. Only those members of the public with a coupon will be allowed access into the stadium. The City has urged residents to only come to the stadium event if they have their coupon. The coupon for entry to the stadium event allows free access to public transport from 12:00 onwards into and out of the city on the MyCiTi bus service, Golden Arrow Bus Services, and Metrorail. There will be a free MyCiTi shuttle service from the Civic Centre to the Cape Town Stadium, and a pedestrian ‘walk of remembrance’ from the Cape Town Station to the Stadium will be activated (the fan walk). For those attending the screening of the event on the Grand Parade, free public transport available has been made available into and out of the city on the MyCiTi bus service, Golden Arrow Bus Services, and Metrorail. This transport will be available from 12:00 to 15:00 inbound and from 19:00 onwards outbound. Both events – at the Stadium and on the Grand Parade – will necessitate road closures and motorists are asked to please bear this in mind. Residents are advised to opt for public transport.
