The 2018/19 campaign of the Telkom Knockout Tournament (TKO), a celebration of a 12-year old sponsorship partnership between Telkom and the Premier Soccer League (PSL), has been launched much to the elation of football fans.
The tournament was launched in Johannesburg tonight followed by the draw of the round of 16 fixtures. The PSL will confirm dates and kick-off times of the fixtures.
This year’s edition of the Telkom Knockout – #TKO2018 – promises to be exciting and rewarding for supporters.
PSL acting Chief Executive Mato Madlala said: “One of the most important things in today’s ever-changing world is to ensure that you remain close to the supporters and show appreciation for their loyalty. Working with our sponsors, we have to constantly look at ways of staying in touch with those who passionately follow the beautiful game. We are thrilled at Telkom’s plans to bring this much-needed consumer engagement drive aimed at maintaining excitement for the game.”
