With the 2016/17 Premier Soccer League season winding down – and four more home fixtures for Bucs remaining at the Stadium Management SA-managed facility – Bucs are fighting to get to the top half of the league standings after an indifferent crusade.
However, coach Kjell Janovret’s charges come off a motivating 4-1 Nedbank Cup victory over Free State Stars from the weekend where they looked a rejuvenated outfit after a string of lacklustre performance.
Maritzburg are a gritty unit and did beat Pirates 2-1 in their previous league meeting at the legendary Soweto venue last season.
With security measures tight – patrons are warned against purchasing fake tickets which can lead to prosecution. The no ticket, no entry rule will apply at the entry points.
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 www.stadiummanagement.co.za.
