CAPE TOWN – The Premier Soccer League is calling on people from in and around Cape Town to adopt one of the two clubs that are going to battle it out for the Nedbank Cup final at Cape Town Stadium on Saturday evening (start 7pm).

Both Maritzburg United and Free State Stars will travel over a 1 000 kilometres to Cape Town where they will play in a historic Cup final – the first appearance by both sides in the Nedbank Cup since inception. 

The Premier Soccer League Chief Executive Mato Madlala has appealed to football lovers to adopt one of the two clubs.

“We need to ensure that people fill the Cape Town Stadium on Saturday evening,” said Madlala. “We are working closely with both Nedbank and the City of Cape Town to pull all stops.”

Madlala added that Maritzburg's Cape Town-born coach Fadlu Davids will be in his first Cup final in front of his home crowd.
