FIFA World Cup

The complicated process of watching South Africa vs Ethiopia at FNB Stadium

The football stadium gates will now be opened for soccer loving South Africans after dozens of months.

The Covid-19 pandemic saw local matches being played inside closed stadiums. 

The first match to be opened to the public is tomorrow's FIFA World Cup qualifier between South Africa and Ethiopia at FNB Stadium. Kick off is at 6pm.

But while the opening of the stadium to the public is good news, it is not all glitz and glamour. 

Football fans will not have the liberty of just walking to the stadium and paying for their ticket. The process is a bit complicated. 

Fans will be required to register for a ticket on by providing the unique voucher code they were given when they were fully vaccinated.

They also need to provide their ID, full name, address and contact number. Once they are confirmed, they can collect their ticket with a unique number linked to their ID, which they must bring to the stadium.

The verification process will also be done at the stadium were ticket holders will need to show the bar code or SMS they received. This will be scanned and their ID verified.
