2018/19 Soweto Derby Dates Revealed

The most anticipated two games of the Absa Premiership season have been given dates for 2018/19, with Kaizer Chiefs and Orlando Pirates set to lock horns in October and February.
 
The Soweto Derby is the biggest fixture on the South African football calendar as the two most well supported teams in the country do battle for Soweto bragging rights, and with both teams enduring a barren run in terms of trophies – bragging rights is all they’ve had of late.
 
With the fixtures for the new season being released by the Premier Soccer League on Monday, football fans can now pencil the derby dates into their diaries, with both matches – as usual – set to take place at FNB Stadium.
 
Pirates will be the home team in October in the first meeting of the sides as Giovanni Solinas gets his first taste of the clash, while the second encounter will take place a few months later at the start of February.
 
Confirmed Soweto Derby Dates:
Pirates v Chiefs - 27 October
15:30
 
Chiefs v Pirates - 9 February 
15:30
