The Maize Cup is a four team annual tournament aimed at helping clubs to prepare for the new PSL season.

Chiefs, who will be participating for the first time, will be joined by Platinum Stars, Free State Stars and Botswana’s Township Rollers.

The organisers of the Maize Cup have issued a statement confirming the details this year’s tournament.

Top class football coupled with award winning entertainment will be coming to South Africa’s Bokone Bophirima Province once again with the third edition of the Bokone Bophirima Maize Cup, to be played Saturday the 15th of July, 2017 at the James Motlatsi Stadium in Orkney.

The four teams unveiled to participate in this annual tournament are Platinum Stars, Free State Stars, Kaizer Chiefs & Botswana’s League Champions, Township Rollers.

Platinum Stars who, as hosts are seeded and are current competitors in the CAF Confederation Cup will be pitted against either Botswana’s League Champions, Township Rollers or PSL’s Free State Stars.

Due to their League standing position Soweto giants, Kaizer Chiefs FC will also be seeded and could also draw either of the two clubs.

Kaizer Chiefs have a lot to prove since their 4th place finish in the Premier League, whilst Free State Stars, having reached a lowly 14th position on the PSL log, will want to pull up their socks for this forthcoming season.

The previous editions of the Maize Cup exposed great quality football and were the precursors to the start of the footballing season. The inaugural edition in 2015, featuring 4 clubs, was won by Platinum Stars.

The following year saw Orlando Pirates fight off against the hosts, Platinum Stars to lift the trophy with a 3-1 penalty shoot-out win.

On the entertainment front, fans will be wowed by veteran gospel artist,  Solly Moholo, Akulaleki hit maker and current SAMA ‘best kwaito’ album winner, Dr Malinga, recently awarded ‘Best female artist’, Bucie, Bhizer of ‘Gobisiqolo’ fame as well as DJs & various cultural acts who will all be performing and entertaining the crowds throughout the day.

The province will be giving away free beanies to the first 2000 fans coming into the stadium.

The way kaizer chiefs r so desperate for a silver ware they compete for every nonsense as long the word "award" is included... those r signs of desperation, confusion, greedy,jealous and being stupid in top of it
