Reading Time: < 1 minute

The Nedbank Cup final match between Free State Stars and Maritzburg United is not only a tricky encounter on the field of play.

It’s also a challenge for the PS, the sponsors as well as the supporters to fill the Cape Town Stadium on Saturday night.

Free State Stars versus Maritzburg United is an exciting encounter in many respects. Both teams are minnows when it comes to playing cup finals.

Stars last won silverware 24 years ago and Maritzburg United are in search of their maiden major title.

Maritzburg assistant coach, Maahier Davids, says their journey to the Nedbank Cup has been long.

Free State assistant coach, Selaotse Mosala says the final berth of the Nedbank Cup was not given to them on a silver platter.

Although this is a fairytale for both teams, their status means neither has a lot of fans who are prepared to travel.

Nedbank has pulled out all the stops to lure supporters. They have lined up a lot of incentives for the fans.

This includes prizes and a star-studded lineup of music performances to grace the Mother City.
