Another Final at Moses Mabhida… Why?
Default

Last night, it was announced that Moses Mabhida Stadium would once again play host to a final, this time the MTN8 decider between Cape Town City and SuperSport United later this month, but why are they always the one to host the big games? What do the fans have to say about this? Let's take a look!

The final will take place on 29 September, where live acts will precede the event before the two teams take to the field to battle it out for the first trophy of the 2018/19 season.

This is the second consecutive year that Moses Mabhida will host the final of the tournament, while on Saturday; the 2010 World Cup venue also welcomed Bafana Bafana and Libya in a 2019 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier.

Moses Mabhida appears to have become a primary playing ground for most of SAFA and the PSL's big events, leaving many of the South African football fans upset that the "big" games are seemingly being limited to one location and not being brought to the rest of the people.

Here's what some supporters had to say about the PSL's choice of venue for the MTN8 final:

"Every final will be played at Mabhida, why not Mbombela, Peter Mokaba or Free State Stadium?" – PROPHET OF DOOM

"I'm from KZN but this is unfair, manje sesikhathele. We got so many stadiums Emzansi but the big matches keep on coming to Mabhida. Come on, guys, rotate nathi sifuna uku traveler niyasibhora phelamanje nge, enough is enough." – Dreboy

"It's unfortunate that they chose Moses Mabhida again, there is a rotten rat smelling here, I am from KZN Tongaat but I am disappointed because I was willing that they must choose at least Mbombela so that we travel to other provinces to watch the game. Why, why, Khoza? Why, why, Mato? Ai, ai, it's unfair." – Bhelekhulu

"They must rotate the stadiums." – Makaveli 99

"There must be a rotation policy. What about other stadiums? Even Bafana Bafana were in the same venue." – magmanaka@gmail.com

What do you think about the choice of venue?

maybe they see that kzn have many football loving fans .. coz right in Jozi fans normally go for Soweto Derbies more than any other match..for example in NW Province fans don't fill up that small Stadium

The problem we have greed soccer bosses as administrators of psl. I suspect brown envelope. So they want to tell us all these other stadiums are not good enough. As fans we should boycott this final for the good of SA football

Eeeeish that's a tough one...so so complicated. I however had thought that the people of Kzn come out in large numbers unlike the rest of the country (I stand to be corrected on this one)....however one would even suggest that finals have to be played all around the country even at Royal Bafokeng Stadium... There are so many reasons to be considered but surely the PSL and the sponsors have to practice equity on this one

Moses Mabhida is convinient for soccer lover it is closer to the people unlike Cape Town stadium where it is very far from the people, as a result people don't even bother to go because of the high cost of traveling...

Editor please can you first tell other people who don't know the reason why the matches are taken to Durban, and enlighten the people the reason why they are not being taken to other provinces. The reason is PSL is a business and they generate money not to please and entertain people with their teams only, all these provinces are given a chance to bid for such kind of matches and their government must put money on the table for that. So you want to force other provinces to asks the matches to come to their provinces if they don't have that budget. PSL will say we will play in your province and what will you put on the table it works like that, don't get confused people.

Yah, SAFA and PSL are illogical in decision making when it comes to where Big Games should be played. After PSL realised that SAFA took Bafana game to the same venue in question, PSL should have made considered a different venue, maybe a neutral venue of Free State or Mbombela. I see Polokwane as a home venue of SS United, therefore SaFA should have taken Bafana game to Polokwane. PSL should have taken MTN 8 Cup Final to either Mbombela or Free State. The two Football governing bodies are failing us big time, and they are killing South African football too.

It is not Durban's duty to teach other cities how to bid for cup finals or big games. There is a bidding process in place so if other cities are sleeping its not Durban's fault.

Because Durban is the number one City in S.A and the atmosphere over here is unheard of.

PLS does not care about football development in this case, that is the reason premier league has been sitting on 10m for ten years yep every they increase their own salaries (poor leadership style)! until we get leaders who are not part of any team i dont see any change in this matter
