Shauwn “MaMkhize” Mkhize, owner of Royal AM, reportedly told City Press that the Pietermaritzburg-based side would use activities in build-up to the match to help the scores of victims of the recent flooding in KwaZulu-Natal.
Mkhize said the club would distribute food parcels and blankets to those affected in the province, adding that more details regarding the distribution of the tickets would be communicated on the club’s social media platforms.
“We have decided to come together and contribute where we can, and this would be our small way of helping the displaced families.
“The floods have affected a lot of people and we believe that, as football people, we should come together and make a small contribution,” said Mkhize.
Sunday’s blockbuster match is a massive occasion for both sides.
