Soweto Derby

Chiefs & Pirates Pre-Season Clash Makes A Return!

The Carling Black Label will be back this year after it was not played in 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The announcement was made on Tuesday afternoon in Johannesburg, with the game set to be played on July 31. For the first time since the inception of the pre-season competition, the game between Soweto giants Orlando Pirates and Kaizer Chiefs will be played at 20h00. 

It will be the first time supporters are not in the stadium, as it was confirmed that the game will be played in an empty FNB Stadium.

As usual, the fans of both clubs will be allowed to vote for the starting line-up, with an opportunity to choose which formations both sides use on the day, as part of the game changers announced by Carling Black Label. 

Some game changers include choosing the captain, picking who takes the first penalty, should it go to a shootout, making live substitutions on the day, as well as the selection of the Man of the Match. 

Former Barcelona and Inter Milan striker, Samuel Eto'o, a Cameroonian legend, is the ambassador for the Carling Black Label competition. The legendary striker was the event held in Johannesburg this afternoon.
