THE Premier Soccer League have released the dates and venues for the Nedbank Cup round of 32, which begins on the weekend of February 22.
The draw for the upcoming round was made earlier this month, with last year’s champions SuperSport United set to begin their title defence against PSL rivals Moroka Swallows.
However, the competition will kick-off 24 hours prior to that tie, with Mbombela United playing host to either Vasco Da Gama or Santos, while Premiership duo Ajax Cape Town and Mamelodi Sundowns, last year’s runners-up, clash in a simultaneous kick-off at the Cape Town Stadium.
Another stand-out encounter taking place on the Saturday is the game between Bidvest Wits and Kaizer Chiefs, which will take place at the Mbombela Stadium, while the remaining last-32 fixtures will take place on Sunday 24 February and Wednesday 27 February.
