JOHANNESBURG: Tickets for the new Shell Helix Ultra Cup have gone on sale after Stadium Management made the announcement on their official site.
The one day cup will be played by Kaizer Chiefs and Mamelodi Sundowns at the FNB Stadium in July. The tickets are available at computicket outlets at Shoprite, Checkers, Checkers Hyper, House and Home, selected OK furniture and Usave Stores.
Jacques Grobbelaar, CEO of SMSA has urged that spectators should buy tickets with time still on their side to avoid traffic congestion on the match day, something that often happens in big matches.
“The Shell Helix Ultra Cup’s planning is in progress and spectators are urged to educate themselves regarding ticketing for both the match and parking. Spectators are the most important role-players in an event of this magnitude, because they ultimately assist us by following the processes and laws we put in place,” Grobbelaar said.
“We use this strict ticketing system with help from our partners at all events, computicket, to eliminate criminal activities in and around the stadium precinct.
“All tickets now have new security features that cannot be closed or copied. We’ve had great success and have reduced the number of criminal activities on match days because illegal tickets can easily be identified and confiscated,” said the CEO.
The competition that is scheduled to run for three years and will be played on July 2018 as Chiefs take on league Champions Mamelodi Sundowns.
