WITH the aim of encouraging the people of Limpopo to attend soccer matches, Polokwane municipality will has donated 6 000 tickets for the match between SuperSport United and Lesotho’s Matlama FC.
The first leg of the African Champions League match is billed for Peter Mokaba Stadium on Sunday and kickoff is at 3.30pm.
Polokwane’s Mantlako Sebaka said the tickets were donated to 18 schools, University of Limpopo, Moletji club, Safa Capricorn and the brass band that will perform at the stadium.
“We are confident that through these tickets we will instill into the community members the spirit of attending the matches. Each school has received 250 tickets, 400 for the university, 60 for the brass band, Moletji club got 40 and 1000 for Safa to cater even for the legends,” said Sebaka.
“We believe that a good turnout will motive United to double their efforts to defeat Matlama. Should United win both legs, they will host Egyptian giants Al Ahly at Peter Mokaba Stadium. That match will be commercialized because Al Ahly is no ordinary team,” said Mantlako.
Schools that benefited are: Peter Nchabeleng, Makgofe, Mulaudzi, Mohlapetsi, Maserumule, Matsebe, Boetse, Seokeng, JH Moloto, OR Mabotja, Kgabo, Tom Naude, Capricorn, Northern Academy and Monyong.
