Stadium management defends hike in Soweto derby tickets
Some fans have raised concerns that the cost for one ticket has increased from R40 to R70.
JOHANNESBURG – Stadium Management says soccer fans will still come out in their numbers to Saturday's Soweto Derby despite a price hike, which has sparked some concerns.
Kaizer Chiefs will be taking on rivals Orlando Pirates in a league clash.
But some fans have raised concerns that the cost for one ticket has increased from R40 to R70.
Stadium management spokesperson Sisa Majola said, “There’s a reason why people flock out to your Computicket to buy tickets and there’s a reason why this is probably one of the biggest football spectacles to the southern hemisphere. But I can give assurance that come tomorrow [Saturday], the general public will get what they are waiting for.”
