With public transport key ahead of the Soweto Derby, there are a number of solutions that have been made available for the Soweto Derby – the highly-anticipated Absa Premiership fixture between Kaizer Chiefs and Orlando Pirates at FNB Stadium on Saturday, 4 March (Gates open 11:30am. Kick Off 3.30pm).
Metrorail, Rea Vaya, KTK Transport Shuttles and Top6 Taxis will be ferrying fans to the mega football spectacle on match day, starting from the morning in terms of the confirmed schedules available below.
For easy access to FNB Stadium and to ensure that you reach the venue in time for the day festivities – patrons are encouraged to utilise public transport made available, with costs starting from as little as R10 each to the different transport hubs at the venue.
There will be road closures and security checks points surrounding the FNB Stadium precinct, so come early to avoid missing the start of the match.
Fans wishing to use private transport to get to the venue are encouraged to purchase limited tickets that are still available in the designated parking areas through Computicket and Shoprite/Checkers retail outlets around the country. They each cost R40 (General Parking), R80 (Exclusive Parking), R120 (Premium Parking) and R300 for buses in the FNB Stadium Transport Hub.
With the tightening of security measures for the Soweto Derby and no tickets being sold near the venue- no vehicle will be permitted to pass the road closure areas without a parking ticket and a match ticket.
The public is warned from purchasing fake or complimentary tickets or arriving at the venue without a ticket.
For safety reasons, the fans should also further note that there is NO official event parking in Shareworld for this fixture and to ensure that you are parked within the official designated parking areas with security readily available to direct you to your different parking areas in the precinct and NOT engage with so-called “car guards” that do not have BFree written in their bibs.
