Orlando Pirates will return to Absa Premiership action in high spirits against Baroka at Orlando Stadium on Wednesday, 26 April.
Gates open at 6pm with Kick Off at 7.30pm.
As South Africa celebrates Freedom Day which is declared a public holiday the day after the fixture – tickets for this fixture are sold through Computicket and Shoprite/Checkers retail outlets around the country costing R40 each (R10 for children under-12) with basement parking costing R100 each.
Patrons are warned that no tickets will be sold anywhere near the precinct and to also not purchase fake tickets, which will lead to prosecution with tight security around the Orlando Stadium precinct. The no ticket, no entry rule will apply.
Patrons are also prohibited from bringing dangerous items like guns, knives and sharp-pointed objects to the precinct with additional safety and security messages as well as FAQS available on https://www.stadiummanagement.co.za/about/stadium-terms-of-entry/
There is also Top6 Taxis public transportation (contact Kgomo 072 821 6243) available to ferry fans to and from the Stadium Management SA-managed facility.
Outside of Thursday being declared a public holiday, another motivation is Bucs’ recent resurgence after having made the Nedbank Cup semifinal stages with a tough win over Bloemfontein Celtic at the same venue this past weekend.
The home team is in search for a secure top eight position in the standings as the season reaches the final stretch while rookies, Baroka, are in a feisty mood and fighting tooth and nail to retain their top league status.
