The 2015/16 Telkom Knockout gets underway this week and the 16 teams will be battling out for a share of the total prize money worth R14.2 million.
Each of the PSL teams involved in the last 16 is guaranteed a participation fee of R250 000, and those knocked out in the round of 16 will get an additional R200 000. The losing quarter-finalists will walk away with an additional R400 000 while the losing semi-finalists will each pocket R750 000.
The winners of the 2015/16 Telkom Knockout will take home R4 million and the losing finalists will receive R1.5 million.
If league form is anything to go by, this year’s edition of the tournament promises to be an intriguing affair, as no team has been able to dominate and take the PSL by the scruff of the neck.
The pick of the opening round fixtures sees Soweto giants, Kaizer Chiefs, travel to the Moruleng Stadium to face off against the high-flying Platinum Stars, who are currently at the summit of the league table.
