South Africa's football loving fans have again responded positively to the 2015 Carling Black Label Cup, with just 4 000 tickets remaining three weeks ahead of the prestigious clash between Kaizer Chiefs and Orlando Pirates, taking place on Saturday, August 1.
In 2014 over 92 000 supporters filled the FNB Stadium and a similar turnout is expected this year for the clash that pits fans against each other through the starting line- up selections for their beloved Soweto giants.
“Its exciting to see how fans are looking forward to the big day. This is another indication of how much the campaign is appreciated and how Champion Coaches are eager to see their starting line-ups,” says Vijay Govindsamy, Carling Black Label’s General Manager.
“The FNB Stadium is a magnificent venue for the game and the occasion has become one of the highlights of the South African football calendar. The atmosphere is always electric and it is a day out not to be missed by supporters,” he added.
The Carling Black Label Cup is a fixture that captures the imagination of fans by putting the power of team selection into their hands.
