Orlando Pirates will know their next opponent when the 2019 Telkom Knockout Draw is held in Johannesburg this afternoon.

The Mighty Buccaneers will be amongst the eight seeded teams in today’s draw which will be taking place at the SuperSport Headquarters at 12h00.

A potential mouthwatering encounter awaits one of the seeded teams however, with current log leaders Kaizer Chiefs amongst the eight unseeded teams in the draw. What this means for Orlando Pirates is that fans could potentially see a Soweto Derby clash in the opening round of the Telkom Knockout Cup.

  1. Mamelodi Sundowns
  2. Orlando Pirates
  3. Bidvest Wits
  4. Cape Town City
  5. Polokwane City
  6. SuperSport United
