Nedbank to sponsor Knockout tournament


Nedbank takes over as sponsors of the tournament from fellow financial institution Absa, who now sponsors the Premier Soccer League.

The tournament will now be known as the Nedbank Cup, with preliminary rounds kicking off in January next year.

However, with the African Cup of Nations taking place from January 20 to February 20, the Absa Premier League teams are expected to start their rounds in late February.

This is also the first time Nedbank will be getting involved in football.
