The PSL has confirmed that no tickets will go on sale for Saturday’s MTN8 final at Moses Mabhida Stadium in Durban, but that doesn’t mean the stadium will be deserted.

The top-eight final between Mamelodi Sundowns and Cape Town City will be the first PSL match since March last year to have people in attendance.

On Wednesday afternoon, the league said: “The attendees will be made up of tickets issued to sponsors of the league as per contractual obligations, MTN8 finalist member clubs’ allocation, and accredited personnel (working staff, members of the media, players, technical team members and match officials).

“Due to the above-mentioned factors, there will be no tickets available for sale. As provided in the directives, all attendees must be fully vaccinated and adhere to all Covid-19 protocols. The PSL wishes to thank supporters, sponsors, the media and all other stakeholders for being part of this test event.”

Earlier this month, government announced that a maximum of 2 000 vaccinated fans would be allowed into stadiums to watch sporting events.

Safa was the first to welcome fans back with the World Cup qualifier between Bafana Bafana and Ethiopia a few weeks ago.

Following the announcement, the PSL said it would use the final as a pilot project ahead of the return of fans to PSL games.

It remains to be seen if any tickets will go on sale for the Soweto derby on November 6.
