800 LADIES will get free tickets to the upcoming MTN8 second-leg semi-final matches this Saturday and Sunday when Ajax Cape Town and Mamelodi Sundowns face Kaizer Chiefs and Orlando Pirates respectively.
Once again the PSL and sponsor MTN will give away 800 tickets – per game – to the ladies only, all in respect of women’s month. The home team will distribute 400 tickets to its fans while various media houses will give away the other 400.
So at each game 800 ladies will enter for free – with their ticket of course. Fans should contact the home team for more information.
“It’s for the ladies only. It’s women’s month and together with the sponsors and the clubs we thought it would be good to honour the ladies. The first two games we saw a number of them at the stadium and it is good for the game to hear their voices,” said PSL GM Internal Marketing, Zola Nkuta.
Female supporters also stand a chance to win R8000, half of which they share with a charity of their choice that supports women and children, if they are chosen as the MTN8 Female Fan of the Match during all the MTN8 games. To stand a chance to be selected as a winner, female fans must come to the stadiums clad in spectacular fan regalia. The winner will be selected by a female sports journalist just before half-time and their picture will be shown on the stadium’s LED screens.
“MTN8 is about the passion and the love for football. We encourage women to come to the stadium in large numbers to support our local football, make a difference in the lives of those who are less fortunate than us and put themselves in line to win fantastic prizes on the day,” said Desiree Pooe, Senior Manager: Sponsorship and Events at MTN SA.
Ajax and Chiefs drew 0-0 in the first-leg encounter at Soccer City while Pirates beat Sundowns 3-2. If both teams are deadlocked on aggregate score after 90 minutes, the away goal rule comes into play and if this still can’t determine the winner, the match will go immediately into a penalty shootout.
Tickets for both matches are still available at Computicket and Shoprite/Checkers and will cost R40 for adults and R10 for children.
The Ajax-Chiefs clash takes place at the Cape Town Stadium on Saturday night; kickoff is scheduled at 8:15pm. The Sundowns game kicks off at 3pm on Sunday.
