AFCON 2019 Qualifier: South Africa Cut Ticket Prises For Eagles

South Africa are already planning ahead of their crucial Africa Cup of Nations qualifier against Nigeria, and have quickly moved to announce reduced ticket prices to allow a massive turnout of their fans at the stadium

With the match still two months away, Stadium Management SA (SMSA) have announced that Bafana Bafana will host the Super Eagles at FNB Stadium and will promote the tie as rights owner and partner to South Africa Football Association (SAFA).

South Africa, who are second in Group E with four points, same as leaders Libya after two rounds of matches, shocked Nigerians in June 2017, to record their first-ever win over the Eagles in an official game.

For the Nigeria match, the general ticket, for levels 1 and 5, will cost 60 Rand, while the reserved seat will go for R120 and corporate hospitality ticket is R2146, excluding VAT.

SMSA chief executive, Dr. Jacques Grobbelaar said: “It is always a pleasure to welcome Bafana Bafana to the spiritual home of African football.

”We are here to support the team in their AFCON 2019 qualifiers and working together with SAFA and our other stakeholders to provide excellent experience for the spectators.

”Ticket packages have been created specifically with the spectator in mind allowing them to experience both matches at reduced costs if they buy the tickets together.

”We know that economic factors influence attendance and have done all that we could to keep the ticket prices accessible for all.

”We’d like to encourage the public to attend the matches; working with SMSA we have created packages that make getting to both matches possible.”
