The draw for the Telkom Knockout will be conducted by PSL General Manager of Football, Derek Blanckensee, at the Wanderers Club, Johannesburg, at 12h00 today.
PSL Chief Executive, Brand de Villiers, and sponsor representative, Braam Wessels, will assist Blanckensee with the draw procedure. The procedure will be conducted as follows:
Three bowls will be used for the draw. The first bowl will contain the seeded eight clubs (clubs that finished inside the top eight during the 2014/15 season), while the second bowl will contain the names of the other eight clubs. The third bowl will be empty – to be used to determine home and away.
A ball will be drawn from the seeded bowl and placed in the empty bowl without opening it. A ball from the unseeded bowl will then be drawn and placed in the empty bowl without opening it. The centre bowl will then be ‘stirred’ and the first ball drawn will be at home, the second ball away.
