Prepare for an electrifying start to the 2024 Nedbank Cup Final! Amapiano songstress and dancer Zee Nxumalo will headline the opening ceremony, setting the stage for a thrilling clash between Orlando Pirates and Mamelodi Sundowns at Mbombela Stadium on Saturday.

Nxumalo will join forces with the dynamic duo Shakes & Les to deliver an unforgettable performance, further fueled by the energy of stadium MC, Big Mike. The excitement doesn’t stop there – winners of the fan competition, selected from the Ke Yona Ya Rona weekly contests, will be announced during the ceremony. These 22 lucky fans not only received an all-expenses-paid trip to the final but also have a chance to win their share of a massive R5 million prize pool, with an additional R500,000 up for grabs for stokvel groups.

“As the opening ceremony sets the stage for the 2024 Nedbank Cup Final, we’re thrilled to showcase the dynamic fusion of music, entertainment and football,” says Khensani Nobanda, Group Executive of Marketing and Corporate Affairs at Nedbank.
