This year’s festival includes the AFCON qualifier match as festival weekend special tickets also include a Bafana Bafana match ticket.
Craig Newman, CEO of Expo Centre, knows that football is part of the fabric of South African culture and says of the festival “South Africa has such passionate football fans and has produced many legends of the game. We are proud to be part and host an event that showcases the best of who we are as a nation and give people an opportunity to live out their love of the game”.
