Our ‘Firsts for Moses Mabhida Stadium’ list is growing! On Sunday, 7 April 2019, Banyana Banaya will make their #MMStadium debut in an international friendly against Jamaica. This game is part of their preparation for the FIFA Women’s World Cup, and is their last fixture on South African soil before they jet off to France for the international tournament.
“We are very excited to be in Durban, as you all know this is part of our World Cup preparations. We have a similar history with Jamaica – their men’s team qualified for their first FIFA World Cup in France in 1998, just like Bafana Bafana, now we also make our debut at the tournament just like their women’s national team, also in France, that is very exciting,” said Banyana Banyana head coach Desiree Ellis upon arrival in Durban.
We urge all Durbanites to come out in numbers and support Banyana Banyana’s first game at Moses Mabhida Stadium, and wish the team well on their journey to the FIFA Women’s World Cup. Entry to the game is free, but fans will need tickets to gain entry. Tickets can be collected from Computicket outlets.
