When I flew into Durban on Saturday morning, I discovered Chiefs were playing Highlands Park at the superb Moses Mabhida Stadium that night.
So I hopped on the bus and headed for stadium - along with around 45,000 other people, virtually all of them from the townships.
To say I stood out like a sore thumb is an understatement. I bought a ticket for R60 ($6) that had been originally sold to a "Mr Bongani Nhlapho", at face value from a helpful fellow outside main gate.
I was made very welcome, however, in a stadium that was a riot of colour and noise.
Think vuvuzela horns, elaborate costumes and non-stop noise - with a few waves thrown in - and roars from the fans - almost entirely clad in Chiefs' gold - whenever a "home" player excelled.
Chiefs got up 1-0 - sparking wild celebrations. I hope you enjoy these pictures.
