This is the second MDC festival, otherwise known as PSL Reserve League, to be played at the Nelspruit venue.
Entrance to the stadium is once again free. Tickets can be collected at all TicketPro outlets in the province, and can be found in Jet, CNA, Edgars and Samsung stores. Two tickets will be allocated per person for each match day on a first-come-first-served basis. On collection, each person will be required to produce a valid South African ID.
It’s still early days in the season – only three rounds have been played – but there’s already a clear front runner in the form of Bidvest Wits. The Students have started like a house on fire, collecting maximum points in all their matches, including a 4-0 drubbing of Kaizer Chiefs, and are yet to concede a goal.
Not falling off the pace this early in the season will be the aim of the festival participants, Mamelodi Sundowns, Orlando Pirates, Kaizer Chiefs, Free State Stars, Platinum Stars, Baroka FC, Polokwane City and Chippa United.
Mamelodi Sundowns and Polokwane City, who finished second and third respectively in last season’s competition will get proceedings underway at 11am on Saturday followed immediately by a clash between Orlando Pirates and Chippa United at 1pm.
On Sunday morning we get to see which star shines brightest when Free State Stars play Platinum Stars at 11am. Limpopo outfit Baroka FC, playing in their first ever MDC host will host Soweto Giants Kaizer Chiefs in the last match of the festival at 1pm.
All four matches will be live on SuperSport 4 and SuperSport Select (channel 210).
