Carling BLack Label Cup 2013 Carling Cup: 10 things worth knowing

Ten things worth knowing about the upcoming clash between Pirates and Chiefs.

» A record 22.2 million fans voted for their teams.

» Teboho Letube (24) from Orlando West in Soweto will guide Chiefs.

» Khotso Mfati (31) from Pretoria will coach Pirates.

» The guest coaches will join the teams in their build-up, visit the dressing room and sit on the bench during the game.

» The game will last 90 minutes (two halves of 45 minutes each). If the score is level at the final whistle, the winning team will be determined via penalty shoot-out as no extra time will be played.

» The fans will vote for the first substitution of the game in the 50th minute, deciding who they would like to bring on from the bench. They can do this by dialling the toll-free number *130*376# and selecting the player they wish to substitute from their favourite team (two entries per supporter). They will then be asked to choose the position of the player – goalkeeper, defender, midfielder or striker – and then the person they wish to introduce to the game.

» This is a change from the first two years, when supporters voted for who they would like to take off.

» The line-up for the entertainment on match day includes DJ Vetkuk vs Mahoota, Mandla Spikiri and Professor, who will perform before the match starts, while the half-time entertainment will come from Dr Malinga.

» Stadium gates will open at midday on match day ahead of the 3.30pm kickoff.

» Fans are also reminded that road closures for the fixture will be in effect from 10am and the following intersections will be affected: Soweto Highway and Mentz Street; Soweto Highway and N1 South; Nasrec Road and Shaft 17 Road; Shaft 17 Road and Soccer City Avenue; N17 and Nasrec Road; Nasrec Road and Recreation/Sport Road; Crownswood Road; Booysens Reserve; Amethyst Road; Nasrec Road and Stadium Avenue; Landbou Road and Ring Road; Booysens Reserve Road and League Avenue; Landbou and Nasrec and Nasrec and Rand Show Road.
