CHALLENGES AND WAY FORWARD :

The issue of the Vosloorus Stadium is a matter for the entire community , since it has been under construction for over five or more years already and this means no accessibility to this facility by the community .Diski Nine 9 games when started in 2003 , were mainly at the open fields and gravel grounds and there no problems , for an enclosed venue for security reasons .
However as seen from the pictures Diski Nine 9 has grown since then , in terms of attendance and the standard of the games hence it is one of the most talked about Festive Tournament in Gauteng , also the new legislation of the Events Act , and the experience that we had ver the final which on its own was a dream final for the fans , since it was Pirates AND Chiefs(S.A ) , Barcelona AND Madrid(Spain ) InterMilan AND A.C Milan(Italy ) , Menchester UTD AND Arsenal (England ), Glascow Celtic AND Glascow Rangers (Scotland ) , plus we waited for four years for these teams to meet in the finals , sparks were bound to fly .Hence there is a need for these games to be hosted at the Vosloorus Stadium in future , that is why Diski Nine 9 , has also took it upon itself to put more pressure on the Council to finish the Stadium fro the safety of the people .

SERIOUS INJURIES AND ACCIDENTS :

Even though emotions and tempers were very high on the day of the final , since it is indeed a game of billions and emotions , Diski Nine 9  is proud to announce that there were no serious injuries ad accidents during the games and thank you to our sponsors for saving the day in announcing on the field that both teams will be regarded as winners and they will both get what was due to the winners , especially after the players from both teams gave all of us a very high standard of soccer .

INDEED A COMMUNITY WAS DEVELOPED through AFRISUN & CARNIVAL CITY TOGETHER WITH DISKI NINE 9 .
