2015/16 Telkom Knockout final will be played on Reconciliation Day, December 16.
Brand de Villiers, the PSL Chief Executive, said the League

that will be participating in the CAF mini-tournament as part of the Rio 2016 Olympics
"The PSL took a decision to rally
behind the U23’s in their bid to qualify for Rio Olympics and, as part of our
agreement with SAFA, we suspended both league and cup competition fixtures
during this period.
"This also necessitated a decision on our side to move the
TKO final to 16 December 2015. We would like to thank our sponsors and
broadcast partners for their understanding as we get behind our U23 boys,” De
The venue and kick-off time of the #TKO2015 will be announced
