The Premier Soccer League (PSL) CEO, Brand de Villiers has urged South Africans to rally behind Orlando Pirates this weekend when they play the first leg of the CAF Champions League final at Orlando Stadium.
Kick-off is at 20h30.
“This is a big moment for South Africa and Southern African football. We have waited for almost two decades for one of our clubs to win the CAF Champions League and Orlando Pirates are just two games away from reclaiming continental victory. This is a proud moment for me as a CEO of the League and a South African,” De Villiers said.
The PSL CEO added: “I would like to wish the club, its chairman Dr Khoza, coach Roger de Sa, his technical team and the players the best of luck this weekend. It is important that as South Africans we put all our club allegiances aside and rally behind Orlando Pirates when they face Al Ahly at Orlando Stadium. Fans must purchase a ticket and go to the stadium. Orlando Pirates have been brilliant so far, now they need to get that second star.”
