Logistics For Platinum Stars vs Sundowns

25 March 2013 The Touchline Expert

Platinum Stars will host Mamelodi Sundowns in the first of two crucial meetings in the space of a couple of weeks when The Brazilians travel to the Royal Bafokeng Sports Palace on Saturday, March 30 for their Absa Premiership clash (kick-off 15h30). The teams will then also clash again in a Nedbank Cup quarterfinal at Loftus Stadium on April 14. Tickets are on sale for the league encounter this weekend from Tuesday, March 26, with Dikwena needing to make up a nine-point deficit on leaders Kaizer Chiefs at the top of the Absa Premiership table, though Stars do also have a game in hand

Dikwena supporters can purchase their tickets from the following outlets: Mickey Geo Restaurant near the Rustenburg Taxi Rank, Lucky’s Pub in Phokeng, Mmamothofela Restaurant in the Phokeng Complex, Kedasa Lodge in Rasimone, Tlhabane Foro Spar.

Stars have also taken the step of making it easier for Sundowns supporters to buy their tickets by making them available at the Social Unity Hair Salon in Atteridgevile. Tickets will cost R40.00 adult and R20.00 children. Dikwena won the reverse fixture earlier in the season when a Henrico Botes goal gave them victory and a similar result would be a big boost to their title chances.“It’s now do or die as we are in the final leg of the PSL season,” Platinum Stars Supporters Co-Ordinator & Media Relations head Aubrey Molobi said. “We would like to continue where we started with Sundown on the first round and make sure that we collect six points from them this season.“ But it will be a difficult encounter, Sundowns have been improving each and every game since Pitso Mosimane took over as coach. But we have a good history against Sundowns and that should motivate our players. With the Nedbank Cup quarterfinal coming up two weeks after this match, there will be extra spice to this fixture.”

Molobi adds that the club is hopeful that the people of the North West province will come out and not just support Dikwena, but also enjoy a day of great football and fun. “I call it the battle of the minerals – gold versus platinum – so we appeal to the entire football-loving public of the North West to come out in numbers and support us,” Molobi says.“Our boys love to feel the vibe of a big crowd and the presence of supporters in their numbers will complete all the ingredients for a great occasion. Both teams are playing a good, entertaining football so go out and buy tickets now to avoid disappointment.”Molobi confirmed that there will also be musical entertainment before the game with performances from local artists.
