TKO quar­ter-fi­nals draw set for to­day

Chronicle (Zimbabwe) - - Sport Starts Here -

THE Premier Soc­cer League an­nounced that the Telkom Knock­out quar­ter­fi­nal draw will be con­ducted to­day, im­me­di­ately after the last round of 16 en­counter be­tween Mamelodi Sun­downs and Polok­wane City.

The quar­ter-fi­nals draw will con­sist of Cape Town City, High­lands Park, Free State Stars, Kaizer Chiefs, Su­perS­port United, Or­lando Pi­rates, Baroka FC as well as the win­ner be­tween Sun­downs and Polok­wane.

Last sea­son's fi­nal­ists Chiefs needed penalty shootouts to progress after being held goal­less by Mar­itzburg United.

Coach Ige­sund had a pos­i­tive start at new­com­ers High­lands Park as the Tem­bisa-based side de­feated Chippa United 2-0. Iron­i­cally, the Telkom Knock­out was the last tro­phy Ige­sund won dur­ing his de­but sea­son at Su­perS­port.

Pi­rates, who have been strug­gling to set their sea­son alight, will be pleased to join the other big guns in the quar­ter­fi­nals fol­low­ing their 2-1 vic­tory against Golden Ar­rows. The Draw Pro­ce­dure:

Three bowls will be used for the draw

The first bowl will con­tain the seeded four clubs – (clubs that achieved high­est four (4) po­si­tions in the 2015/16 sea­son will be seeded)

The se­cond bowl will con­tain the names of the other four clubs.

The third bowl will be empty – to be used to de­ter­mine home and away (How it will work) 1. A ball will be drawn from the seeded bowl and placed in the empty bowl with­out open­ing it

2. Another ball will be drawn from the un­seeded bowl and placed in the empty bowl with­out open­ing it

3. Then a “stir” for the cen­tre bowl and draw the first ball for home, the se­cond ball for away. — © su­pers­

As a token of ap­pre­ci­a­tion, the Min­is­ter of Sports and Recre­ation of South Africa presents R700 000 to Sun­downs play­ers to share among them­selves
