Absa Premiership giants Orlando Pirates are set to host Tunisian giants Etoile Sahel at the Orlando Stadium in the 2015 CAF Confederation Cup finals first-leg encounter on Saturday.
South African football fans have been urged to go out and buy tickets early because they will not be sold at the stadium on match-day.
Pirates' media officer Thandi Merafe revealed that 20,000 thousand match tickets had been sold by Monday evening.
"Twenty thousand tickets have been sold thus far so they are moving fast. Please get them early and no tickets will be available at the stadium," Merafe said.
Nicknamed the Mecca of South African football, Orlando Stadium is situated in Soweto and it has a seat capacity of 40,000.
Kick-off between the Buccaneers and the Red Devils is at 20h00. Zambian referee Janny Sikazwe will be in charge of the game.
