All indications are that Macufe 2019 will be an exciting affair. The tickets for the Gospel Extravaganza are already sold out, and tickets for other events are selling fast.

This is according to C-Squared chief executive officer, Ben Moseme. Moseme was speaking at the Macufe launch held at The Edge Restaurant on Naval Hill on Friday morning.

Free State Premier, Sisi Ntombela welcomed guests to the province and the metro, and reminded them to enjoy the festivities responsibly. She added that the current scourge of gender based violence in the country is of great concern, adding that the province would be raising awareness throughout the festivities.

The final event of the festival is the Macufe Cup soccer match between Bloemfontein Celtic and Kaizer Chiefs, which will be played on Sunday 13 October 2019, at the Toyota Free State Stadium, with gates opening at 11:00.

Bloemfontein Celtics chief executive officer Khumbulani Konco said Celtic would be coming with full force to ensure that the trophy stays at home. While Kaizer Chiefs football manager Bobby Motaung said Chiefs did not come all the way from Johannesburg to lose.

Moseme ended the launch by reminding everyone to support local craftsman at the arts and craft market on Markgraaf Street.
