The Premier Soccer League have announced the most defining dates of the calendar.
While the league title is still very much wide open and the MTN8 Cup in SuperSport United’s cabinet, we have the Telkom Knockout and the Nedbank Cup on the way.
There’s also the Absa Premiership key breaks to note, and of course the final day of the season to crown our 2019/20 champions.
First up the list is the Telkom Knockout, known as the TKO. The tournament’s last 16 draw will be held this Wednesday and we’re eager to find who defending champions Baroka FC will face.
TKO’s December 14 final will be followed by the league’s Christmas recession on 22 December - before action resumes on January 3.
February will see the always exciting Nedbank Cup bringing us National First Division (now the Glad Africa Championship) outfits and SAFA division sides. Can TS Galaxy defend their crown?
