Orlando Pirates have confirmed the venue and ticket prices for the first leg of their CAF Confederation Cup final against Etoile Du Sahel.
The Buccaneers will take on the Tunisian outfit in a two-legged final with the first leg set to take place at Orlando Stadium on Saturday, 21 November, with proceeding scheduled to get underway at 20h00.
This will be Bucs’ first appearance in the final of the continental competition and they will be looking to add the trophy to their cabinet by getting one hand on it in their first leg clash.
General admission tickets for the first leg of the final at Orlando Stadium will be sold at R80, while juveniles will be charged R10.
Pirates’ Administrative Officer, Floyd Mbele, confirmed the venue and explained the reason behind the hike in ticket prices from R40 to R80.
"The first thing I can confirm is that the final will not be moved. We will be playing the final at Orlando Stadium,” Mbele said on Bucs’ official website.
"As for the pricing of the tickets, we will adopt the same approach as we have done in previous high category matches played at the venue.
“The cost of R80 for general admission is the same amount we charged when we played Kaizer Chiefs a few seasons ago and again in 2013 when we hosted Al Ahly in the Champions League final.
"The final is a premium product and so has higher associated costs of running the event."
