Mdantsane to host 2019 opening Diski festival

Following a successful first half of the MultiChoice Diski Challenge, the Diski Festival will make a welcomed return to Mdantsane just outside East London this weekend.

The Diski Challenge (PSL Reserve League) will be played on Saturday, 12 and Sunday, 13 January 2019 at Sisa Dukashe Stadium. Gates open at 08h00 on both days.

This is the second time Mdantsane will get an opportunity to host – the first and only festival at the venue was back in November 2016.

Entry is free on both days but a ticket will be issued to supporters as part of access control. Tickets can be collected at the stadium’s ticket office on Thursday and Friday from 13h00-18h00. They will also be available at activation points in and around Mdantsane.

Clubs completing the festival line-up are: Cape Town City, Mamelodi Sundowns, Baroka FC, Kaizer Chiefs, Bidvest Wits, Polokwane City, Chippa United and Orlando Pirates.

Cape Town City, who are still leading the pack with 22 points, will kick-off proceedings on Saturday at 10h00 when they clash against Mamelodi Sundowns.

Baroka FC and Kaizer Chiefs will play the last match on Saturday at 12h00.

On Sunday, Bidvest Wits and Polokwane City will play the first game of the day at 10h00. At 12h00, Chippa United will lock horns with Orlando Pirates.

All Diski Challenge matches are broadcast live on SuperSport 4 (DStv channel 204) and SuperSport 10 (DStv channel 210) and on community TV channels available on DStv.

The fixture list and results will be posted on the @OfficialPSL and Diski Challenge social media platforms, #Asidlali on Facebook and Twitter.
