All Coupons for Nelson Mandela: A Life Celebrated Have Now Been Collected

10 December 2013

The City of Cape Town would like to sincerely thank all those who have collected their coupons for Cape Town’s own tribute to Madiba at the Cape Town Stadium – Nelson Mandela: A Life Celebrated.

All available coupons have now been collected, which is a wonderful display of Madiba’s great impact on everyone’s lives.

As there are no more coupons available, the City would like to appeal to coupon-holders to please give away any coupons that they are not using. This is the best way of honouring Madiba: ensuring that as many people as possible can attend the event. Anyone who has spare coupons or coupons they cannot use is encouraged to give these coupons to friends, family members, or even strangers who they know will make use of them.

Public transport

The coupon for entry to the stadium event allows free access to public transport into and out of the city on the MyCiTi bus service, Golden Arrow Bus Services, and Metrorail.

There will be a free MyCiTi shuttle service from the Civic Centre to the Cape Town Stadium, and a pedestrian ‘walk of remembrance’ from the Cape Town Station to the Stadium will be activated (the fan walk).

Commuters are encouraged to use the free public transport service because roads around the stadium will be closed and it is anticipated that there will be traffic congestion.
