The Soweto Derby, undoubtedly the biggest clash of the season between Kaizer Chiefs and Orlando Pirates will take place at FNB Stadium on 9 November 2019. Stadium Management SA (SMSA), is working closely with both clubs, the Premier Soccer League, JMPD, SAPS and private security companies to ensure that spectators are safe and that traffic and transport logistics run smoothly on match day. With the match expected to be sold out for the event over 87 000 spectators are anticipated to make their way to the iconic FNB Stadium.
Bertie Grobbelaar, Managing Director SMSA, “The Soweto Derby is one of the biggest events to be held annually at FNB Stadium and the safety and security of spectators is our number one priority. SMSA is working very closely with stakeholders to plan every detail of the event. We encourage all spectators to arrive as early as possible, gates open at 11h00 on the day, providing ample time for spectators to make their way to FNB Stadium.”
