The Premier Soccer League (PSL) have warned fans hoping to attend Saturday’s sold-out Nedbank Cup final between Kaizer Chiefs and TS Galaxy to beware of fake tickets that might be on sale.
The PSL say they are working closely with the South African Police Services to ensure that fake tickets do not make their way onto the market for the eagerly-anticipated clash at the Moses Mabhida Stadium in Durban.
“SAPS will deploy a huge contingent in and around the stadium prescient. Among the activities being monitored is the illegal resale of ticket and sale of fake tickets,” the PSL said in a statement on Thursday.
“At the previous Cup final at the venue, eight people spent a night in jail after they were arrested for selling fake tickets and reselling tickets.
“The League, together with SAPS, have urged people who do not have a match ticket to stay at home and rather watch the match live on SuperSport and SABC.
“As part of the stringent security measures around the stadium, scanners will be used at all the entry points and those caught with fake tickets face arrest.”
Gates will open for the 7pm kick-off at 2pm and the first 10 000 supporters to arrive at the stadium will receive Nedbank Cup goodies.
