August 3: Bloemfontein Celtic (H)

It’s the opening match and they say first impressions last. The Buccaneers must make a statement with their first game of the Absa Premiership.

August 14: SuperSport United (A)

Matsatsantsa will most likely be among the title contenders depending on how solid their transfer window is – and they always have it in them to upset the applecart.

September 21: Bidvest Wits (A)

Gavin Hunt has again rang the changes and is bringing in new playing personnel. The Clever Boys are often a tricky customer and the Buccaneers had to rely on an own goal from Keagan Ritchie the last time at that venue.

October 26: Stellenbosch FC (A)

Rookies are dangerous. Pirates seldom get a result they want in the Western Cape. For the new comers this will be a big fixtures on their home ground.

November 9: Kaizer Chiefs (A)

The biggest fixture on the SA football calendar and most recently the Buccaneers have had the upper hand. Will they continue their dominance over Amakhosi?
