The colossal clash will take place at Orlando Stadium on Tuesday, 6 September and kicks off at 19h00.
“It is for this reason that whatever we do as South Africans, we must take any event in honour of Nelson Mandela seriously. We want Orlando Stadium to be packed to the rafters as a tribute to such an amazing human being,” said the SAFA President.
Dr Jordaan said in recent times most South Africans had seen the need to live the values of Nelson Mandela and through the NMC, the football world was living this legacy.
“Through this match, it helps us live this legacy because most of the proceeds go towards helping make a difference in the lives of our young children through the fund established by Madiba. Tata cherished the wellbeing of children and the needy and besides being a wonderful match pitting the South and North; it is an opportunity for the public to make a contribution towards a worthy cause,” added Dr Jordaan.
He said football fans would also have an opportunity to witness the country’s next generation as Bafana Bafana coach Ephraim ‘Shakes’ Mashaba continues building the future senior national team.
Tickets for the match are being sold for R80 at Checkers, Shoprite Checkers and all Computicket outlets.
