Soweto Derby match date confirmed

The postponed ABSA Premiership Soweto Derby between Orlando Pirates and Kaizer Chiefs has been re-scheduled for Saturday the 6th of December at the FNB Stadium in Johannesburg.

Originally due to take place on the 1st of November, the match was halted due to the death of Orlando Pirates and Bafana Bafana captain, Senzo Meyiwa, who was shot at the home of his Afro-pop singer girlfriend, Kelly Khumalo, on the 26th of October.

In a statement, the Premier Soccer League (PSL) said that those who purchased tickets for the initial date, would be able to use their ticket for the match.
