Big match played week later

2015-06-17 06:00

THIS year’s Carling Black Label Cup Tournament featuring South African football giants Orlando Pirates and Kaizer Chiefs will be played on 1 August instead of 25 July as confirmed by the organiser.

The game was rescheduled due to Pirates’ engagement in the Confederation of African Football (Caf) Confederation Cup.

The only South African club left in the continental championship, the Buccaneers, have advanced to the group stages (last eight) of the CAF Confederation Cup following the demolition of AS Kaloum of Guinea 6-1 on aggregate recently.

This year’s is the fifth edition of the Carling Black Label Cup set to be played at the FNB Stadium in Johannesburg.

The defending champions Pirates are looking to extend their winning record to four this year over one-time winners, Amakhosi.

Tickets are already available for purchase at Computicket.

Thus far over 35 000 tickets have been sold and fans are urged to continue purchasing their tickets. Tickets bought before the date change will remain valid for the tournament.

Meanwhile, fans are urged to continue voting for their starting line-ups, in the quest to build the strongest sides for their teams and also the chance to qualify to Be the Coach, and on the benches of the two teams.

Fans can still continue to vote and make their voices heard by purchasing a specially-marked bottle of the brand beer and look out for the unique underliner which will allow them to vote.

By dialling *120*660* underliner code# on their cell phones (at a cost of 20 cents per 20 seconds) or visiting, they can easily select their starting line-up and lead their team to victory.

This will also automatically enter fans into the competition to be the match-day Consumer Coach where the winners (two) will get the opportunity to enjoy the game with the team from the bench!
