It’s almost time for the first competitive Soweto Derby of the season, and Kaizer Chiefs have released some information about the upcoming cracker at FNB Stadium.
The Glamour Boys are currently top of the Absa Premiership table after playing eight games in the 2019/20 campaign, and will be eager to end their poor run of form against their Soweto rivals, Orlando Pirates, who have won just one of their last nine games in all competitions.
Chiefs haven’t beaten Pirates in a league game since back in December 2014, and the upcoming clash on November 9 gives them an opportunity to make sure they remain fighting for Absa Premiership honours as one of the frontrunners.
A statement on the club’s official website after tickets officially went on sale for the bumper occasion read, “Tickets for the epic and much-awaited Soweto Derby are out on sale at Computicket, Shoprite and Checkers outlets nationwide.
“The notable sporting calendar clash which dates from 1970 is set for 9 November 2019. The ‘Battle Royale’ between the arch-rivals Kaizer Chiefs and Orlando Pirates is scheduled to take place at the iconic FNB Stadium – kicking off at 15:30.
“Tickets cost R70 (level 5), R100 (level 1) and R150 (level 2). Seating for the people living with disability is prepared on level 2 at R70… Further build up details will be revealed continuously leading to the date.”
Ernst Middendorp’s side have lost just once so far this season, but have some tough games on the horizon – starting with this weekend’s tie with Cape Town City in the Telkom Knockout.
