Cape Town - The rush is on to obtain tickets for the upcoming pre-season Soweto derby between Kaizer Chiefs and Orlando Pirates.

The match, dubbed the Carling Black Label Cup in which fans select the teams, is scheduled for July 27 at FNB Stadium.

According to the SowetanLIVE website, organisers have urged fans to buy tickets early to avoid disappointment as 21 683 tickets have already been sold.

A record 81 200 supporters watched the unique match last year.

Pirates have won the last two editions, but Chiefs will be eager to turn the tables after their successful PSL-Nedbank Cup double last season.
