  • The Telkom Knockout Cup has finally been replaced, with the Carling Knockout Cup taking its place.
  • The Telkom Knockout Cup was last played in 2019 when Mamelodi Sundowns won the trophy by beating Maritzburg United in Durban.
  • There will also be a fixture that involves a select Carling 11 side on 16 December, which is often the day of the final and start of the South African holiday season.


The Telkom Knockout Cup has finally been replaced, with the Carling Knockout Cup muscling into its space in the 2023/24 season.

The Carling Knockout Cup will follow the same format of the Telkom Knockout Cup, traditionally known as the League Cup, where the 16 DStv Premiership sides will be drawn in a straight knockout tournament until a winner is determined.

The caveat is that the winner of the tournament will play a Carling 11 on 16 December next year where the Carling 11 will feature six players chosen by fans from the teams that didn't make the final, with the other five players coming from the Multichoice Diski Challenge.

When asked about the future of the pre-season Carling Black Label Cup that generally features Soweto giants Orlando Pirates and Kaizer Chiefs, along with the prize money for the tournament, Premier Soccer League chairperson Irvin Khoza had a shrewd response:

"Watch this space with regards to that, but the prize money will be substantial," Khoza said.
