“We are pleased to announce the Free State Stadium as the venue for the 2021 edition of the Nedbank Cup. This season’s competition has already proven to be thrilling and entertaining so far and we expect much of the same in the final,” PSL acting Chief Executive Officer Mato Malala said in a statement.
“We would like to thank our partners, Nedbank for their continued support. We also like to thank the different stakeholders for their participation and cooperation in this process. We have no doubt that this will be a successful event.”
‘We are thrilled to finally bring the Nedbank Cup Final spectacle to the Free State Stadium,” Khensani Nobanda, Group Executive for Marketing and Corporate Affairs at Nedbank added.
“The stadium has hosted some of the most historic football events in the country such as the 1996 Africa Cup of Nations, a tournament that lives long in the memory of every South African as Bafana Bafana lifted the trophy for the time. We remain committed to the communities in which we operate, our aim is to ensure that the excitement of the Nedbank Cup is accessible to all parts of the country.”
