The tickets for the much-anticipated Soweto Derby between Orlando Pirates and Kaizer Chiefs on 9 March at FNB Stadium have gone on sale.
They range from R100 (Level 5) to R170 (Level 2), while kids pay R50. Tickets can be bought on Ticketpro.
Before this game comes, Pirates face Chippa United, Mamelodi Sundowns, Polokwane City and Cape Town Spurs, while Chiefs will meet TS Galaxy, Royal AM, Moroka Swallows and Golden Arrows.
Heading to the Derby, Pirates had the bragging rights as they won 1-0 through the goal scored by Evidence Makgopa on 11 November, in what was in front of FIFA president Gianni Infantino, who was in attendance along with CAF’s Patrice Motsepe and 2002 World Cup final referee Pierlugi Collina.
However, Chiefs have scored 228 Soweto derby goals, while the tally for the Bucs is 193.
Chiefs also edge Pirates when it comes to head-to-head results, as in 179 past derbies‚ 74 were won by Chiefs and just 46 by Pirates. There have been 54 draws and five abandoned matches.
Thembinkosi Lorch had a chance to draw level with Jerry Sikhosana with six goals in this storied match, having netted five in the past, but he has since left Pirates to join Mamelodi Sundowns.
Chiefs will resume the DStv Premiership when they host Sead Ramovic’s side at Peter Mokaba Stadium on Tuesday next week, after the Africa Cup of Nations finals.
Pirates, who were woeful before the AFCON break as they lost to SuperSport United and Stellenbosch FC, respectively, will host Chippa United at Orlando Stadium on the same day on Tuesday.
