29 April 2013 The Touchline Expert

Platinum Stars will play their penultimate home league game of the 2012/13 season when they host Maritzburg United at the Royal Bafokeng Sports Palace on Wednesday, May 1.

It is the final match before Dikwena play their Nedbank Cup semifinal against SuperSport United on May 8 and with the chance of winning a league and cup ‘Double’ still alive, Cavin Johnson’s men will go all out for victory.

The club are appealing to the people of the North West province to get behind the side as they enter the final stretch of the campaign.

“Maritzburg United are a very good side and it will be a tough game for the boys, but they are playing at our ‘slaughterhouse’ and we are confident of picking up another three points as we chase an historic ‘Double’ this season,” says Platinum Stars Supporters’ Co-coordinator & Media Relations head Aubrey Molobi.

Tickets for the match go on sale from Saturday, April 27 and are available at the following outlets: Lucky’s Pub and Mmamotho Fela Restaurant in Phokeng, Kedase Lodge in Rasimone and Mickey Geo’s Restaurant in Rustenburg. Tickets are priced at R40 for adults and R20 for children under the age of 12.

Dikwena have also announced some other exciting benefits for fans, including a reduction in the price of replica jerseys.

“As part of giving back to our supporters, we have discounted our replica jerseys from R350 to R250 on a first come, first serve basis while stocks last,” Molobi confirms. “We further request our people to wear their Platinum Stars t-shirts or replica jerseys on Friday to pledge their support for our Platinum Stars Football Friday campaign.”

The Platinum Stars Football Friday will kick-start on this week at the Bafokeng Shopping Centre, where replica jerseys will be on sale. Those who buy on that day will get a complimentary ticket for the Mariztburg United game.

The club has also made a special concession price for VIP Hospitality tickets for the game against The Team of Choice at a cost of only R300, which includes catering. The club will also be embarking on a roadshow ahead of the game at the following venues:
