Thee most electrifying atmosphere Capetonians could ask for is when the Urban Warriors play the Soweto giants Pirates and Chiefs, or Bloem Celtic. And Friday night was no different! A sold out stadium (they only opened the one level and a small part of the second tier) so I’m assuming around 22 000 people were at the game. Personally I was looking out for the likes of Pirates stars Josephs, McCarthy and Klate. We decided to walk into the stadium a few minutes after kick off as the queues seemed endless! After seeing some comments on FB and Twitter I realised there were some issues with someone saying four people had tickets for the exact same seats. A caller on radio explained it was his first time at the stadium and he took his son and they witnessed more than one fight. Myself and friends walked in on people sitting on our seats and we told them to leave We did too unfortunately witness a nasty fight (could be the same one the caller saw) but all three people were quickly removed. Going forward the organisers would need to plan better and be prepared not only logistically, but if the Facebook person was correct, it means ticket fraud has now moved down from Joburg to Cape Town.
Oh, Ajax scored first but soon after that the Bucs equalized and after a few chances, the game ended a 1 all draw.
Here are some shots through my lens:
