November 23 could be a very important date. It could be the first time the newly-crowned African Champions League champions Orlando Pirates play in a knockout tournament since winning the continental crown. Or, if my (possibly unjustifiable) optimism is misplaced, it could be the first time Pirates play in a knockout competition since losing the final in Egypt. Either way, it’ll be a chance to watch Pirates take to the pitch — and given their performances in Africa this season, they deserve your presence.
Tickets for the Telkom Knockout semi-finals went on sale today (Friday, November 8) through Computicket and Shoprite Checkers stores. SuperSport United will take on Pirates at the Local Moripe Stadium on at 3pm, before Platinum Stars go up against Kaizer Chiefs at 8.15pm.
Tickets cost R40 for adults, and R10 for children under 12.
