» This will be the sec­ond meet­ing between th­ese two teams in a cup fi­nal. Last year, City won 2-1 to lift the Telkom Knock­out ti­tle – with Aubrey Ngoma and Ju­das Moseamedi scor­ing the goals, while Kingston Nkhatha scored a con­so­la­tion goal for United.

» Eric Tin­kler was the coach when City lifted the Telkom Knock but on Satur­day, he will be sit­ting on the op­pos­ing bench. With first­hand knowl­edge of both sides, he is well-placed to get one over his for­mer team.

» This will be Benni McCarthy’s first cup fi­nal as a coach. The for­mer striker has so far been just as trail­blaz­ing in his role as coach as he was as a player and all eyes will be on the bat­tle of South Africa’s new gen­er­a­tion of coaches.

» Su­perS­port will be in their fourth straight cup fi­nal, hav­ing reached the fi­nal of the Ned­bank Cup twice and Telkom Knock­out.

» Out of the four cham­pi­onship matches, the team from Tsh­wane pre­vailed in two, while new kid on the block City have won the sin­gle fi­nal they have been in since the team was formed only a sea­son ago.
