Bafana vs Niger Tickets Selling Fast

Posted by KAY-EL On September - 1 - 2010

Tickets for the Bafana Bafana vs Niger match at the Mbombela Stadium in Nelspruit on Saturday 4 September 2010  are selling fast, in spite of being more expensive that previous tickets.

R50 Tickets are Sold Out

According to information gathered by from Safa, more than 22 000 tickets have already been sold. The tickets for the lower grand stand which cost R50 are already sold out. There are 20 000 tickets, costing R100, still available for the upper grand stand.

Kick-off time is at 20h30 for this crucial first match in the 2012 African Cup of Nations qualifiers.

Bafana Bafana Need to Qualify

According for Safa, Bafana Bafana captain Aaron Mokoena believes the team needs to qualify especially after failing to be part of the last edition of the 2010 AFCON in Angola.

“It was not good watching the continent going to the tournament and we had not qualified as hosts of the 2010 FIFA World Cup. This time we need to ensure that we are on that plane to Gabon and Equatorial Guinea for the 2012 AFCON. Without taking anything away from our opponents – Niger, Sierra Leone and Egypt – our performance in the World Cup has shown that we are capable of qualifying and we have no other alternative but to do so. We owe it to ourselves and to the nation to be part of the next AFCON tournament. I cannot stress this enough that we need to qualify because being there also helps the team in gaining experience. We have a young side that needs to go through the joys and pains of playing in the AFCON so that when the World Cup tournament comes they are ready for competition,” said Mokoena.

Bafana Bafana Confident they can Beat Ghana at Soccer City

Posted by KAY-EL On August - 10 - 2010

Bafana Bafana players and new coach Pitso Mosimane  are confident that they are going to beat the Black Stars of Ghana on Wednesday night in the international friendly at Soccer City.

Coach Pitso Mosimane is Confident

According to football365 Mosimane insists he is in a confident mood ahead of the showdown, despite stating that the Black Stars would provide a true reflection of how well Bafana have progressed.

“I am looking for continuity. We all know how good Ghana are. They were the best African side at the World Cup, but I believe we can beat them,” he said.

Teko Modise Wants to Pull off a Win

Orlando Pirates and Bafana Bafana midfielder Teko Modise has told the Siya crew that the team wants to pull off a win for in honour of the host nation, who contributed to the success of the tournament.

“We ended on a high note and we have to start on a high note as well. We have to do it for the nation that has always supported us. We also have to make sure we are continuing with our winning ways. We need to keep on doing well as we prepare for the qualifiers. It is good to always play well and win,”

Black Stars of Ghana have a Strong Team

Ghana have brought 12 of their World Cup stars, including goalkeeper Richard Kingson, captain and defensive hardman John Mensah, the classy young striker Andre Ayew, plus the impressive Kevin Prince Boateng who proved a handful for some of the best defenders in the World Cup, and will give Mokoena and company plenty to think about

Bafana Bafana vs the Black Stars of Ghana on 11 August at Soccer City should be a great match – or will it be a slaughter? Well all the supporters want to know is what Safa is doing with the tickets prices…

It was first announced on the SAFA website at the bottom of the page,  Coach Mosimane’s Vision 2014

According to the Safa Website : South Africa hosts Ghana at Soccer City on Wednesday the 11 th of August 2010. Kickoff is at 20h35 and tickets for the match go on sale on Friday 23 July at Computicket and Shoprite Checkers stores. Tickets cost R50.00 all round.

Then now I saw on the that : There has been a whole misunderstanding, tickets will go on sale a week before the match….we were still trying to validate what the problem was.

This is all from my previous story on Vuvuzela South Africa.

And now I see from two sources, Senego and Africa: News Culture Sport (not from Safa) that the tickets are on sale already, for R100 each!

Bafana Bafana vs Black Stars Tickets Available at Computicket

“The tickets became available yesterday (Friday) at Computicket and according to SAFA communications director Morio Senyane, tickets are selling at R100 each.

Speaking in a media briefing in Johannesburg on Friday, Senyane urged soccer lovers to rush to buy tickets as early as possible and keep the spirit of the recent World Cup going.

“After an hour we had already sold about 250 tickets and only urge the media to help in terms of promoting the match between Bafana Bafana and Ghana at the Soccer City on August 11.”

No Website for Bafana?

Well how on earth is the media going to help promote the game and the tickets if SAFA doesn’t put a media release on their website or keep us informed?

And while we are talking about it – why doesn’t the South African National Football Team have a website? There is so much money in soccer, surely part of Bafana Bafana’s campaign must be a marketing and publicity one?

The supporters want to know, demand to know – why is there a discrepancy between the ticket prices? To pay 100 % more for a Bafana Bafana Black Stars ticket is a lot of money.

See you at Soccer City on 11 August.

WEll it seems as if there is a complication with the matter of the ticket sales for the friendly between South Africa and Ghana on 11 August at Soccer City.

According to the Safa Website : South Africa hosts Ghana at Soccer City on Wednesday the 11 th of August 2010. Kickoff is at 20h35 and tickets for the match go on sale on Friday 23 July at Computicket and Shoprite Checkers stores. Tickets cost R50.00 all round.

But now I see on the that : There has been a whole misunderstanding, tickets will go on sale a week before the match….we were still trying to validate what the problem was.

Ticket Sales

So Bafana Bafana Supporters in particular, and soccer fans in general, watch this space and we’ll try to keep you informed when SAFA or whoever get their act together get the right information out to the loyal supporters who want to plan their lives and who really would like to come to the game to watch the Black Eagles take on Bafana Bafana.

Bafana Bafana to Play Ghana at Soccer City

Posted by KAY-EL On July - 23 - 2010

South Africa hosts Ghana for a friendly at Soccer City on Wednesday the 11 th of August 2010. A match up between Bafana Bafana and the Black Stars is maybe not what new coach Pitso Mosimane wants right now.

But Mosimane is a  brave man and he tells football365 that “upcoming friendly against Ghana will provide a true indication of how far the national team has come.

Mosimane once again preached about the benefits of youth development, something which his predecessor Parreira took some flak for from SAFA back in 2007.

Ghana – 2nd in Africa

“Ghana is second in Africa and 23 in the world. How did they get there? Where are we in relation to that?

“Ghana focused on development and their senior side is reaping the rewards of investing in junior national sides,” said Mosimane, who warned the nation that it is time to “fasten our seatbelts and keep our composure.”

Coach Mosimane’s Four Year Plan

Bafana Bafana Head Coach Pitso Mosimane is a man with a plan, in fact a Four -year -plan.

Coach Mosimane presented his 2014 Vision on Thursday (22 July 2010) at a media briefing held at SAFA House in Johannesburg. The vision is to prepare and build a strong, competitive and respectable team for the country in preparation for the 2012 African Cup of Nations in Gabon/ Equatorial Guinea and the 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil.

Mosimane applauded the PSL for their commitment and support in accommodating Bafana Bafana’s program in the League’s calendar. Pitso Mosimane said that his continuous engagement with the League is the approach he will apply to other stakeholders in the football fraternity.

SAFA CEO Leslie Sedibe- Vision 2014

SAFA CEO Leslie Sedibe says the decision to kick off Vision 2014 with an international friendly match against Ghana demonstrates the Association’s commitment to improve the standard of South African football.

“The road to 2014 will not be an easy one. We are mindful of the challenges ahead, especially after having staged a very successful FIFA World Cup in our country. Our choice of opponents in this preparatory stage is to ensure that our players continue with the momentum of the World Cup, we are also sending a message to our team that there is no room for complacency when we face any of our opponents in the qualifiers. We must prepare adequately for Niger and Sierra Leone, just as we will prepare for the African Champions Egypt in our group,” explained Sedibe.

Bafana Bafana vs Black Stars Kickoff

Kickoff is at 20h35 and tickets for the match  at Soccer City go on sale on Friday 23 July at Computicket and Shoprite Checkers stores. Tickets cost R50.00 all round.
