Durban’s majestic Moses Mabhida Stadium will host the 2013 Nedbank Cup final on May 25. This was confirmed by the Premier Soccer League (PSL) today.
The Nedbank Cup final will kick-off at 3pm. The 2012/13 Nedbank Cup final will feature Kaizer Chiefs and defending Nedbank Cup champions SuperSport United.
Kaizer Chiefs booked their place following their 2-1 victory against National First Division (NFD) outfit, United FC. SuperSport United defeated Platinum Stars 3-2 last night.
PSL Acting CEO, Cambridge Mokanyane said: “When deliberating on the venue for the final with our sponsors Nedbank and the clubs involved, a number of venues were tabled and considered. However, Durban was a natural choice for us because of the support we have received at the stadium. Durban fans have been good to us in the past. We would like to thank the City of Durban and Moses Mabhida Stadium management who have always been helpful to the League whenever we request to use that venue.”
“Since inception in 2008, the Nedbank Cup final has been a spectacular occasion and signalled the final curtain call for the PSL season. The showpiece has thus far been played in five different stadiums and Moses Mabhida stadium offers a marvellous opportunity to take the Nedbank Cup and indeed the Nedbank brand to yet another 2010 FIFA World Cup venue.
“We are confident that the fans will come out in their droves to support this year’s finalists and make it yet another memorable event.” said Andy Scott, Head of Group Sponsorships at Nedbank.
The PSL also confirmed that tickets for the final will be on sale in the next few days. Mokanyane implored fans to purchase tickets early.
“We expect to see a packed Moses Mabhida Stadium, so fans must buy tickets early. This promises to be yet another thrilling final.”
