The 2019 Mzansi Super League (MSL) final taking place at Eurolux Boland Park on Monday night has been sold out. All 7 500 tickets were snapped up within a day and a half to ensure the biggest crowd of the tournament. Faf du Plessis’ Paarl Rocks team will face the Tshwane Spartans in the title clash who defeated the Nelson Mandela Bay Giants by 22 runs in Port Elizabeth in the eliminator.
Paarl Rocks CEO James Fortuin said the quick ticket sales were a testament to the quality of the cricket played at the MSL T20 as well as the great entertainment provided for fans at games.
“We have created a vibe at Eurolux Boland Park over the last two months which enticed not only regular cricket supporters, but also new converts to this exciting new form of entertainment. We are going all-out to ensure Monday night will be memorable. There will be music, dancing, fireworks and much more entertainment presented in a family-friendly environment,” he said.
“The support the Paarl Rocks have received from the community in the wider Boland area has been phenomenal and we see Monday night as a thank you to our purple army of supporters,” Fortuin said. The final of the Mzansi Super League is taking place at Eurolux Boland Park on Monday 16 December at 17:30. Gates open at 15:30.
Faf du Plessis and AB de Villiers face-off in MSL 2019 final
It will be a treat for the fans as two best friends and former South Africa teammates Faf du Plessis and AB de Villiers will face off in the final on Monday. Both the batsmen are in great form in the tournament thus far and it would be interesting to see who comes out on top to win the title.
The Rocks have been one of the consistent teams in the season thus far as they topped the table as well in the league stages. The Spartans, on the other hand, have been a tad lucky with five of their matches getting washed out due to rain. Having said that, credit goes to them for playing some attractive brand of cricket.
