Pirates Set For Kings Cup In Lesotho

Soweto giants, Orlando Pirates, have accepted an invitation to participate in the Kings Soccer Cup in Lesotho next month.

The match, which will be played on the 14th July against Matlama Football Club, is played in honour of King Letsie III, who will be celebrating his 50th birthday on the 17th of July.

Pirates’ official website, orlandopirates.com, say that the club has ‘factored in this encounter against Matlama, not only to honour the King, but also to sharpen their skills ahead of what is expected to be grueling 2013/14 season.’

Just under a week after returning from Maseru, the Buccaneers will play their first CAF Champions League group game against AC Leopards, before taking on Kaizer Chiefs in the Black Label Cup a week later.

The last time Pirates played Matlama was in 2004 in the preliminary rounds of the Champions League, with the first leg played in Maseru, ending 3-0 in favour of the Buccaneers. The Champions of Lesotho went down 4-0 two weeks later.

The game will be played at the 20 000-seater Setsoto Stadium in Maseru.


Orlando Pirates and Kaizer Chiefs will clash on July 27, with the title of 2013 Carling Black Label Cup champions up for grabs.
