Orlando Pirates to face Black Leopards in full house in Nedbank Cup


The Premier Soccer League on Friday confirmed that tickets to the Nedbank Cup tie between Leopards and Pirates have been sold out.

The Buccaneers will visit Venda for the first time since October 2007, when they edged Lidoda Duvha 3-2 in a league encounter, when they clash in the opening round of the Nedbank Cup.

Previously, Bucs have had it slightly easier when tackling the Limpopo outfit at the Peter Mokaba Stadium in Polokwane or Mbombela Stadium in Nelspruit.

However, after gaining approval to host 'Category A' games at their traditional home, supporters are set to flock to the 28,000-seater come Saturday evening at 18h00.

However, the official number of tickets have been capped at 18,000 for safety reasons.

Leopards are undefeated in their last five league matches under new coach Dylan Kerr, while Pirates boast a 24-match unbeaten run across all competitions this season.
