The Premier Soccer League has confirmed the draw procedure for the quarter-finals of the Telkom Knockout competition.
Chippa United and Bloemfontein Celtic will be the final two sides to lock horns in the last 16 of the Telkom Knockout competition, where the draw for the quarter-finals will take place thereafter.
The PSL has since confirmed the four teams that will be seeded in the draw, with Kaizer Chiefs the only team from the big three not seeded, meaning that they can face either Mamelodi Sundowns or Orlando Pirates in the early stages.
“The Telkom Knockout quarter-final draw will be conducted LIVE on Tuesday night at Sisa Dukashe Stadium in East London after the Chippa United vs. Bloemfontein Celtic fixture,” the PSL confirmed.
“The quarter-final draw is seeded: Clubs that achieved highest four (4) positions in the Absa Premiership 2018/19 season will be seeded while the rest will be unseeded. Seeded clubs cannot play each other.”
