-Chancers dealt with
- Social distancing Control
1 Costly exercise
Safa chief medical officer Thulani Ngwenya have admitted that the trail run manage to achieve the goal it was intended for. However there were many challenges faced. He is adamant that it was a very costly experiment. It was more like the bio bubble.
Ngwenya said it costed more money as more marshal were needed. It meant they had to get more security more salary to pay. He says it not sustainable there way it was done. They will need to prepare better next time around. The PSL spend around R90 million to conclude the 2020/2021 seasons for both PSL and Glad Africa champions. Tebogo Motlanthe said they spend around R1 million for admitting fans into the stadium for "Bafana" game against Ethiopia.
2 Ticketing System
Ngwenya did confirm that the ticketing system which was put in place for the "Bafana" game against Ethiopia was flawed. It allowed those who wish to attend the game to order 4 tickets per person. Some of the fans did not pitch. Some people bought tickets for kids. Instead of having 1700 and 300 for VIP. We had around 1100 people.
3 Chancers dealt with
According to Stadium management SA managing director. Bertie Grobblelaar those who are thinking of presenting fake tickets they must forget. Scanning capabilities are still being finalized by the government of South Africa. Your ID number will be linked with your vaccination status he said.
4 Social distancing control
Ngwenya says it going to be a challenge working with a bigger crowd as he was forced to walk around and remind people of social distancing in the stadium. The supporters had their wristbands with their allocated seat number.
Some of the supporter left their allocated seat to join their fellow fans to sing and cheer for "Bafana".
