2019-10-09 15:30

Cape Town - The Soweto giants will be up against the Mother City in the 2019 Telkom Knockout after Kaizer Chiefs were drawn against Cape Town City, while Orlando Pirates will welcome Stellenbosch FC in this year's tournament.

The Telkom Knockout (TKO) competition was launched in Johannesburg amid fanfare and promise for more action, more drama and (Z’khipha) more goals!

The draw for the 2019 edition was conducted in an event attended by all the 16 clubs participating in the tournament.

Baroka FC, the reigning champions, will attempt to defend the trophy they won against expectations at the Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium in December 2018. They face stiff competition from 15 of their 'colleagues' from the Absa Premiership.

Once again, supporters will be central to this year’s tournament.

Telkom, which has been the official sponsor of the tournament for 13 consecutive years, will be giving away daily cash prizes to the value of R1 million.

PSL acting Chief Executive Mato Madlala said she expects the 2019 edition of the Telkom Knockout to produce more magic and to once again be the point of discussion among football fans from October to December.

The final of the Telkom Knockout will be played on December 14 at a venue yet to be announced.

Gugu Mthembu, Telkom Executive for Brand and Product Segments said: "All hands are on deck and we are ready to see drama unfold on the soccer field.

"There is a lot on the cards for Telkom customers and we promise an amazing tournament this season."
