All roads will lead to Tshwane on May 27 after the Premier Soccer League (PSL) announced that the 2022/23 Nedbank Cup final will be played at Loftus Versfeld Stadium. Loftus Versfeld Stadium is considered a cavernous venue with steep stands that provide one of the best atmospheres in football, with fans close to the action, allowing them to be an integral part of the spectacle.
The final sees the Buccaneers taking on Sekhukhune United to claim a spot in the send tier of the CAF Champions League which is the Caf Confederation Cup after Orlando Pirates dispatched their archrivals Kaizer Chiefs in the bitter Soweto derby for a spot in the final.
Sekhukhune claimed their spot after booting out on-form Stellenbosch FC in a battle that was stretched through extra and right up to penalties and Sekhukhune triumphed 5-4 against a stubborn Stellies from the Cape Winelands.
Loftus Versfeld has a rich history in South African football and will be the 12th Nedbank Cup final venue in the past 16 years as Nedbank lives up to its promise to take the prestigious showpiece decider around the country.
It played host to matches in both the 2009 FIFA Confederations Cup and the 2010 FIFA World Cup, featuring the likes of Spain, Italy, Brazil and Bafana Bafana. It’s a cavernous venue with steep stands that provide one of the best atmospheres in South African football, with fans close to the action, allowing them to be an integral part of the spectacle.
