Mamelodi Sundowns have announced that entrance for the match against Al Merrikh of Sudan on Saturday will be free. Fans with a valid match ticket, vaccination certificate or negative Covid-19 PCR test no older than 72 hours and proof of identity (ID or driver’s licence) will be allowed accesa to the stadium. They are hoping to create a festive atmosphere at FNB Stadium with a large attendabce for their Caf Champions League group stages clash .
Children under 12 only need a match ticket to gain entrance. While entrance is free, fans still need to have a match ticket, which are available before Saturday’s match-day at Sundowns supporters branches, club road shows and activations and Ticket Pro outlets.
President Cyril Ramaphosa said last week that venues for professional sport events can operate at 50% capacity and Sundowns and Al Merrikh will be the first high-profile fixture to have fans in the stadium. Sundowns will beat the Premier Soccer League (PSL) to hosting a sizeable crowd in a stadium.
