Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) leader Julius Malema has thrown his weight behind Bafana Bafana ahead of its world cup qualifier against Burkina Faso at the FNB Stadium in Johannesburg on Saturday.
According to reports this week, the team runs the risk of playing in front of the lowest ever attendance to an official international match after it emerged on Tuesday that only 300 tickets have been sold.
Malema has appealed to South African's to support the boys.
The party will be giving away 1 000 tickets to learners and supporters.
Brothers & sisters let's all buy Bafana Bafana tickets, we are not a nation of quitters. We can't give up,we are Bafana Bafana. #AsikiBafana— Julius Sello Malema (@Julius_S_Malema) October 5, 2017
