Orlando Pirates said the crush happened when people attempted to push their way through the gates into the 87,000-capacity FNB stadium.

Authorities allowed the pre-season cup game to continue.Public safety official Michael Sun said on Twitter that all gates at the stadium had been opened to ensure crowd control and that the situation was later brought under control.

Of the 17 injured, one is in a critical condition, the stadium managers said.
