The Telkom Knockout draw will be conducted this afternoon with the Premier Soccer League confirming the procedure.
The MTN8 competition concluded this past weekend, with SuperSport United lifting the trophy for the second time. Now, while the FIFA break is underway, teams will now prepare for the next cup competition.
The TKO competition will kick-off between October 19 and 22, this before the Absa Premiership returns to action.
Here is how the draw will be conducted as confirmed by the PSL:
Three bowls will be used for the draw (labelled: Pot A, B, C) - The first bowl (Pot A) will contain the seeded eight clubs – (clubs that finished inside the Absa Premiership top eight during the 2018/19 season) - The second bowl (Pot C) will contain the names of the other eight clubs. - The third bowl (Pot B) will be empty – to be used to determine home and away
How it will work:
We (The PSL) draw a ball from the seeded bowl (Pot A) and place it in the empty bowl (Pot B) without opening it - We draw a ball from the unseeded bowl (Pot C) and place it in the empty bowl (Pot B) without opening it - We then draw go to Pot B and draw the first ball for home, the second ball for away.
