Johannesburg - Kaizer Chiefs will kick-off their 2013/14 campaign defending the pre-season Gauteng Cup at Loftus Versfeld in Pretoria on Sunday.
"We want to achieve more this season, starting off well by defending the Gauteng Cup," Chiefs coach Stuart Baxter said during the week.
The league and cup winners from last season, Chiefs will face the winning team from the morning match between University of Pretoria and Bloemfontein Celtic.
Baxter said his charges would go into the season with an eye on achieving even more milestones and would not be resting on their laurels.
"Last season was fantastic but we can't dwell on the past," he said.
"Everyone in the team is looking fit and they understand what we want as a team."
Amakhosi on Thursday officially unveiled striker, Knowledge Musona, who returns to the side after two years with Bundesliga club 1899 Hoffenheim.
The 23-year-old Zimbabwean international, a favourite with the Chiefs' faithful, failed to get regular game time in Germany.
"I'm looking forward to working with my team-mates again," Musona said.
"I had a great time when I played here between 2009 and 2011."
Chiefs could face a stern test from either AmaTuks or Celtic in the final, who are both formidable opponents.
They have not beaten University of Pretoria, last year's premier league rookies, and were held 0-0 in the first round of league matches.
They were then beaten 1-0 on the last day of the league by the student side.
Steve Barker's Tuks side now face the challenge of trying to fill the void left by Bongani Zungu and Mame Niang, who were snapped up by Mamelodi Sundowns and SuperSport United respectively.
Phunya Sele Sele will be the dark horses this season, having held onto their star players -- captain Thabo Nthethe, winger Joel Mogorosi and keeper Patrick Tignyemb -- despite receiving other offers.
The Free Staters also secured the signature of midfielder Musa Nyatama from Mamelodi Sundowns in the pre-season.
