Jo­han­nes­burg - Kaizer Chiefs and Or­lando Pi­rates will lock horns once again in an epic bat­tle when they meet for the 2017 Car­ling Black La­bel Cham­pion Cup at FNB Sta­dium this af­ter­noon. Kick-off is at 3:30pm. The an­nual pre-sea­son tour­na­ment sig­nals the start of the 2017/18 cam­paign as the two big­gest clubs in the coun­try meet for the sev­enth time in this unique fix­ture.

What makes it so spe­cial is the fact that the fans of both teams have picked the start­ing XI for their re­spec­tive sides by cast­ing votes via SMS for the past month. The fans can fur­ther in­flu­ence the game on matchday by forc­ing a sub­sti­tu­tion. Again this is done on the day of the game by vot­ing via SMS for the player they would like to in­tro­duce af­ter the 55th minute.
