Banyana Banyana will face the Netherlands at the Cape Town Stadium on Saturday as they prepare for the FIFA World Cup.

Football body Safa has expressed gratitude to supporters for snapping up thousands of complimentary tickets ahead of Banyana Banyana’s clash against the Netherlands at Cape Town Stadium on Saturday.

Safa CEO Russel Paul explains that an additional 7 000 free tickets were made available on Friday after many disappointed fans posted online that the free tickets had all been taken.
