Nedbank Cup last 32 dates and venues confirmed

The 2018/19 Nedbank Cup round of 32 matches, that will see some of the country’s amateur clubs trying to make a name for themselves against their much-fancied professional opponents, will kick-off on Wednesday evening, 23 January 2019.

The last game of the round of 32 will be played on Tuesday, 29 January 2019.

Defending champions, Free State Stars will kick-off proceedings when they host Richards Bay FC at Goble Park Stadium while Polokwane City and Tshakhuma Tsha Madzivhandila clash in the much publicised Limpopo derby. Both fixtures will kick-off at 19h30.

In addition to the 24 clubs from the PSL professional structures, eight clubs from the SAFA amateur structures await an opportunity to make a name for themselves; five of which will be making their Nedbank Cup debut appearance. The debutants are: Tshwane University of Technology (Gauteng), Boyne Tigers (Limpopo), NC Professionals (Northern Cape), Umvoti FC (Kwa-Zulu Natal) and Tjakastad Junior Shepard (Mpumalanga).

On Friday, 25 January 2019, Cape Umoya United and Tshwane University of Technology will lock horns at the Athlone Stadium at 15h00 while AmaZulu FC host Highlands Park at the King Zwelithini Stadium at 20h00.

The following day (Saturday), there will be a total of six fixtures which will include a clash between Black Leopards and Orlando Pirates at Thohoyandou Stadium. This will be the first meeting between the clubs in the competition since the 2011 final. Four matches are scheduled to take place on Sunday, 27 January 2019.

The last two fixtures of the round of 32 will take place on Tuesday 29 January 2019. Baroka FC will host Jomo Cosmos at the Peter Mokaba Stadium while Maccabi FC welcome The Magic FC to the Dobsonville Stadium. Both matches are set to kick-off at 19h00.
