Mamelodi Sundowns are calling for football supporters to rally behind the team for their upcoming CAF Champions League game.
The Brazilians are preparing to host Wydad Casablanca of Morocco in the first leg of the Champions League quarter-finals at the Lucas Moripe Stadium on Sunday afternoon.
The club has confirmed free stadium entrance will be granted to fans wearing yellow the club colours. Speaking to the Siya crew, Downs’ media coordinator, Thulani Thuswa, appealed to the fans to go to the stadium to support the team.
“We would like to ask our supporters to come in numbers. We want to repeat history. We want to say that we are meeting them halfway in that they are coming to the stadium for free. Those that will be coming dressing in Sundowns’ attire will get in for free. Go to the stadium to add your voice behind the boys and also be part of history.
“We know what we will expect when we go to Morocco. We will be expecting a full stadium there. The least we can do, as the supporters (of Sundowns) is to add our voice behind the team. Be the 12th man behind the team.
“Also, we’ve got top entertainment lined up for this game. We’ve got Dr. Malinga, you know what he does. We’ve got other entertainers as well. We wanted to make sure that we do our part. It’s important for us to win at home,” said Thuswa.
The Downs official confirmed that the gates at the stadium will be opened at 11h00. He further explained that free tickets will be available at designated collection points close to the match venue.
