It was revealed on Monday night that a three-year deal has been agreed prior to the first game being played on July 21st at FNB Stadium, with the two clubs battling it out for the new Shell Helix Ultra Cup trophy.

A statement released yesterday said, “Stadium Management SA (SMSA) is pleased to announce a new annual pre-season fixture on the domestic football calendar, which will see South Africa’s top teams go head-to-head for bragging rights at the Shell Helix Ultra Cup. 

“The event Rights Holders are Stadium Management South Africa while the fixture itself will be sponsored by Shell Downstream SA and forms part of a three-year agreement between the two parties.”

@Special*00 they will extend the teams to 18 or 20 once chiefs or pirates end up in the relegation zone. kaizer and Irvin will do their best to make sure their teams dont go down. they will use their influencial position at safa and psl to make sure that does not happen .

No sponsor would like to sponsor any tourment without involving Kaizer Chiefs. Amakhosi is a Big Brand like Helix Ultra and others
