JOHANNESBURG – Two people have been killed and several others injured during a stampede at FNB stadium in Soweto on Saturday afternoon
The incident took place during a match between Orlando Pirates and Kaizer Chiefs in the Carling Black Label Cup.
Johannesburg Public Safety MMC Michael Sun says calm has been restored, and additional paramedics have been deployed to the scene.
“We understand the alleged cause of the stampede to be people trying to sell or present fake tickets at the gate, one thing to another, resulting in the stampede.”
The exact cause of the chaos is being investigated.
