Cape Town - Top flight football will make a detour to the residents of Tsakane in Ekurhuleni when the MultiChoice Diski Challenge (PSL Reserve League) descends to the township this coming weekend at the Tsakane Stadium.

Having already made its way through some of the country’s biggest townships such as Umlazi, KaNyamazane, Tembisa, Mdantsane, Daveyton, Rocklands to name but a few, the Premier Soccer League (PSL) together with partners MultiChoice, continue to stay true to the tournament’s founding promise of taking football to the people, and the community of Tsakane will be the latest beneficiary of that commitment.

This weekend’s festival, the tournament’s 12th round, will take place on Saturday, 28 and Sunday, 29 January 2017. Gates open at 10h00 on both days.

Entry is free on both days but members of the public will be issued with a ticket as part of access control. Tickets will be available at the stadium’s ticket office on Thursday and Friday from 13h00 - 18h00. They will also be available at activation points in Tsakane. Only two tickets will be allocated per person on a first-come-first-served basis.

On Saturday, table toppers Mamelodi Sundowns and 12th placed Ajax Cape Town will lock horns at 12h00 while seventh-placed Orlando Pirates and fifth-placed Highlands Park do battle at 14h00 in an encounter which could make or break both teams’ title credentials.

Defending champions, Lamontville Golden Arrows and third-placed Bidvest Wits will play the first of the day on Sunday when they clash at 12h00. After having given away a two goal lead in each of their previous two matches, six-placed Kaizer Chiefs will be looking make amends when they host Cape Town City in the last match of the festival. Kick-off for this match is at 14h00.

Fans attending and those watching live on SuperSport 4 and Select (Channel 210) stand a chance of winning a trip for two to Netherlands accompanying the winning team. Competition details are available on the competition’s social media pages, Asidlali on Facebook and @Asidlali on Twitter, as well as at the start of the live broadcast on SuperSport 4.
