The MTN8 final between Kaizer Chiefs and Ajax Cape Town will be held on September 19 at the Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium in Port Elizabeth, the Premier Soccer League confirmed on Friday.

Kick off is at 3pm.

The PSL finally announced the venue, about three days behind schedule.

“We are pleased to announce that the Nelson Mandela Bay will host this year’s MTN8 final. There were a number of factors that influenced this decision, including the response we got from the people of the Eastern Cape when we staged a Cup final there a few months ago,” said PSL CEO Brand De Villiers in a statement.

The 2015 Nedbank Cup final was held at the same stadium, with Mamelodi Sundowns beating Ajax on penalties after a goalless draw.
