Johannesburg - The Telkom Knockout Cup committee has confirmed the dates, times and venues of the first round of 2011 Telkom Knockout matches to be played later this month.

This season’s tournament will open on Friday, October 21 in Cape Town when Santos host Maritzburg United at the Athlone Stadium.

That will be followed a day later by the eagerly-awaited clash between Orlando Pirates and Black Leopards, which is a 18:00 kick-off at the Orlando Stadium.

That is quickly followed that night by arguably the pick of the first round matches as in-form Moroka Swallows host big-spending Mamelodi Sundowns in Dobsonville at 20:15.

Kaizer Chiefs will play their first round clash against Platinum Stars at the Royal Bafokeng Stadium in Phokeng on Sunday, October 3, with kick-off at 15:00.

At the same time, Ajax Cape Town will take on Free State Stars at away from their usual Cape Town Stadium base, with the match scheduled for Athlone Stadium.

SuperSport United will welcome Lamontville Golden Arrows to the Lucas Moripe Stadium on Tuesday, October 25 (19:30 kick-off), while a day later Jomo Cosmos and Bloemfontein Celtic do battle at Sinaba Stadium (19:30) for a place in the quarterfinals.
