I know that we have been struggling lately but we have to come to the party and win, we are playing an unknown team but we are expecting a thouygh run against Cape Town All Stars on Saturday.
Kaizer Chiefs have failed to reach the finals of Nedbank cup since it’s inception five years ago. and they have lost to so called small teams.
The last 32 stage – which pits all the Premier Division teams with NFD outfits and semi-professional teams, will begin in earnest on Friday.
Ticket prices will be R40.00 for adults while children under the age of 12 will pay R10.00. They can be purchased at Computicket outlets and Shoprite Checkers countrywide.
PSL CEO, Stan Matthews said this year’s competition promises to be thrilling.
“It’s important for our fans to adopt the culture of purchasing tickets early. I’m glad to see that a lot of the semi-professional sides will get to test their skills against some of the Premier Division outfits in the last 32 stages. We all know that no match can be considered a foregone conclusion.
“One of the most important things about the Nedbank Cup is that, it is about community involvement. It pits professional sides with those teams that play in the amateur ranks.
“We must support and celebrate such an initiative as it affords opportunities to young players who otherwise wouldn’t have the chance to play against their football role models,” Matthews said.
The first game will be a clash of Maritzburg United and Bloemfontein Celtic at the Harry Gwala Stadium on Friday, 02 March 2012.
