The South African Football Association are already making plans to stop the Super Eagles from getting all three points in their home fixture.
South Africa have reduced the ticket price of their 2019 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) qualifier against the Super Eagles of Nigeria. The Bafana Bafana are set to host the Super Eagles in a crunch clash group E clash scheduled for November and are already making plans to ensure supporters turn out in mass for the encounter.
The recent development was announced by the South Africa Football Association (SAFA) who also announced that the legendary FNB Stadium will host the encounter between the two rival countries.
Russell Paul SAFA general manager in football business confirmed the incentive for the supporters in a statement.
He said, “We are very excited to have Bafana Bafana play these two Afcon 2019 qualifiers at FNB Stadium.
“The matches are significant and important in the team’s qualification campaign.
“We’d like to encourage the public to attend the matches. Working with SMSA, we have created packages that make getting to both matches possible.”
South Africa beat the Super Eagles 2-0 in the first leg played in Uyo and are eyeing a return leg victory which could all but guarantee their passage to the next round.

Before Bafana host Nigeria they have a doubleheader against Seychelles and while the Super Eagles face Libya home and away in October also.
