Cape Town - The Nedbank Cup quarter-final dates, venues and kick-off times have been confirmed by the Premier Soccer League (PSL).

The fixtures will be played over two days: Saturday, March 31 and Sunday, April 1.

On Saturday afternoon, 2014 semi-finalists Maritzburg United will welcome a confident Bloemfontein Celtic side to the Harry Gwala Stadium while NFD outfit Ubuntu Cape Town aim to continue their fairytale run in the competition when they host Free State Stars at Athlone Stadium.

Kick-off for both fixtures is 15:30.

Later on Saturday evening, 2013 champions Kaizer Chiefs will host Limpopo-based side Baroka FC at the Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium in Port Elizabeth.

This will be the first time the two sides meet in the Nedbank Cup since that 2011 quarter-final clash at the Peter Mokaba Stadium when Baroka FC - then campaigning in the ABC Motsepe League - caused one of the biggest upsets in South African football history after recording a famous 2-1 win over Amakhosi.

Kick-off is at 20:15.

On Sunday, Cape Town City and Mamelodi Sundowns will square off at the Cape Town Stadium in what is sure to be the most highly anticipated fixture of the quarter-final stage.

The Citizens reached the quarter-finals after victories over Bidvest Wits and Orlando Pirates in the last 32 and last 16 stages, respectively, while the Brazilians got past Cape Town All Stars and EC Bees in the earlier stages of the competition.

Kick-off for this fixture is 15:00.
