The Premier Soccer League has confirmed that legendary former Orlando Pirates goalkeeper Williams Okpara will play a role in this Saturday’s Soweto Derby.
The much-anticipated sold-out match for the two giants of South African football – Pirates and Kaizer Chiefs – will be taking place at FNB Stadium on Saturday afternoon.
The PSL has confirmed that Okpara will be in the goalposts for the Woza Nazo Soweto Derby as one lucky fan will take home R100 000 during the half-time competition.
“Fifteen years after retiring, Williams Okpara is back for the Soweto Derby! The legendary Buccaneers goalkeeper is set to be in goal this Saturday at the FNB stadium for the first time since hanging up his gloves in 2005,” the PSL confirmed in a statement.
“Okpara, regarded as one of the best goal minders in Soweto Derby history, will enter the field during half-time for the Woza Nazo Shootout competition that will take place on the day.
“The unique competition will see the 10th football fan, this season, take home an instant cash prize of R 100 000 and is also a final opportunity for Gauteng based Absa customers to win big.
“At half-time, five football-loving Absa customers will be brought to the pitch to kick against Okpara in a sudden death competition until there is only one winner left,” confirmed the PSL.
