THE BILLION RAND GOAL
“Football is a matter of life and death, except more important.”
– Bill Shankly, Scottish footballer and manager
If you support either Orlando Pirates or Kaizer Chiefs, then you know exactly what Shankly means when these two teams stride out in front of a packed FNB Stadium to do battle. Stop for a moment and consider what 80 000 screaming fans with vuvuzelas sounds like. If you think that 62 000 fans crammed into Ellis Park is impressive when the Springboks are standing shoulder to shoulder against the All Blacks, this takes passion to a completely new level.
