Cape Town - The Free State Cheetahs will host Currie Cup First Division champions, the SWD Eagles, in a promotion-relegation match on Tuesday, October 30 to determine which side will feature in the Currie Cup Premier Division next season.

The match will be played at the Toyota Stadium in Bloemfontein at 18:00.

The Free Staters finished the pool stages of the Currie Cup Premier Division as the last-placed team, while the SWD Eagles completed the league stages of the Currie Cup First Division as the best-placed team and thus qualified for the promotion/relegation match.

SWD reaffirmed their status as the top team in the competition by defeating the Valke 36-27 in a nail-biting final in George last Friday, which marked their first Currie Cup First Division title in over a decade.

The winner of the match will automatically qualify for a Currie Cup Premier Division spot next season, while the losing team will play in the Currie Cup First Division.
