Stadium Management SA (SMSA) together with the Johannesburg Metro Police have initiated more stringent measures to regulate parking management systems at the FNB Stadium for the upcoming derby clash between Orlando Pirates and Kaizer Chiefs on Saturday, 15 March.

Fans who are attending the match are cautioned that there will be NO GENERAL PUBLIC PARKING inside the stadium precinct and offending vehicles will be towed away. Strictly NO PARKING TICKETS will be sold on site on the day of the match; illegal (pavement) parking will be regulated by JMPD and stadium security.
