CAPE TOWN – Stadium Management South Africa (SMSA), who operate the FNB Stadium, says anybody entering the precinct for the Mamelodi Sundowns clash against Barcelona next Wednesday will be arrested if they don’t have a ticket.
Despite Barcelona having yet to confirm that the match will indeed take place, SMSA chief executive Jacques Grobbelaar took to Twitter to provide ticket details and security plans ahead of the big game.
It appears as if SMSA and other stakeholders are taking no chances following the disastrous Moses Mabhida Stadium violence following Kaizer Chiefs’ 2-0 defeat to Free State Stars in the Nedbank Cup semi-final last month.
Ticket prices range from a value-for-money R40 for the upper tiers to a hefty R550 for the prime seats in the main grandstand closest to the pitch, with other prices being R50, R150 and R350.
“You will be arrested if not in possession of a valid match ticket. We have specifically cleaned the holding cells at the Stadium,” Grobbelaar warned.
