THE 2012 Carling Black Label Cup gives fans the opportunity to ‘Be the Champion Coach’ once again this year as Orlando Pirates and Kaizer Chiefs meet at the FNB Stadium on July 28 in their showpiece encounter.
Supporters will not only be able to select the starting line-ups for both sides, but also make the first substitution of the game as they look to steer their side to victory on the day.
And to ‘Be the Champion Coach’, you have to be close to the action, so those fans in the stadium on match day will have a big advantage as they get to capture what the TV cameras don’t, catching the small nuances that can be critical in determining a game.
Tickets for the 19h30 kick-off are now on sale at all Computicket outlets nationwide and with seats set to go fast, supporters are urged to get theirs quickly.
Unreserved stand tickets are R40 (Level 5) and R60 (Level 1) and R150 for reserved seats on level 2. For parking at the Soccer City Complex Precinct (near the Expo Centre) it will cost R20, while parking at the stadium is R50.
The Orlando Community will volunteer 50 people as part of its community upliftment project to minimise risks related to emergency parking, theft, uncontrolled traffic and poor parking etiquette.
Affordable Hospitality tickets are also on sale and range from R750 for the budget package to R1995 for premium hospitality on match day. If you’re in the mood to enjoy the luxury of a suite package but are on a strict budget, you can choose from three packages under

But in the meantime, voting remains open for the starting line-ups of the two sides, and supporters can have their say by purchasing a Carling Black Label beer and then by dialing *120*764*.
Fans must then enter their unique code found on the inside of the bottle cap and the # sign (with no spaces in between), and they can then choose the team they would like to manage, and the players they would like to see in the starting line-up. The voting is free of charge to the public.
Those supporters who cast their votes can win great prizes, including a share of R3-million worth of airtime, match tickets to the showpiece event on 28 July 2012 and, best of all, a coach’s experience with either Orlando Pirates or Kaizer Chiefs on match day.
One of the unique features of the Carling Black Label Cup is the fantastic prize that will allow two lucky fans to experience their team in training, sit in the pre-match briefing and be part of the dug-out with their favourite team. This is a once in a life-time experience for adult consumers.
All supporters who cast their vote for the players they would like to see compete in the 2012 Carling Black Label Cup will be automatically entered into this competition
