Durban’s Moses Mabhida Stadium has been announced as the host venue for this year’s #MTN8Final on Saturday, 29 September 2018.
The #MTN8Final, to be contested by SuperSport United and Cape Town City, will kick-off at 7pm.
The 2018 MTN8 final has been widely billed as ‘Act II’ of the battle between SuperSport United and Cape Town City – following last season’s epic final which was decided on penalties. At stake is the prestigious trophy together with R8 million prize money for the winner. The loser goes home with nothing bar the appearance fee.
Premier Soccer League acting Chief Executive, Mato Madlala said: “This is not just another final – but a match where both teams will be looking at either settling old scores (from last year’s final) or reaffirm that last year was not luck.
The League, SuperSport United, Cape Town City and MTN took the decision that the Moses Mabhida Stadium will provide a perfect backdrop to this encounter.
“We thank our partners MTN for always believing in our product. We believe that people will travel from Gauteng and Western Cape for this final on 29 September,” Madlala said.
Moses Mabhida Stadium is, without a doubt, one of the country’s most iconic venues and has hosted historic finals.
