There is nothing more exhilarating than an experience for a football fan to see their team play in a local derby against a familiar foe with bragging rights on the line.
This year’s Telkom Knockout competition has been about ‘Unlimited Celebration’ and fans getting the opportunity to share their banter with opposing supporters.
This will be taken up a notch when the semifinals are played this Saturday, with two outstanding fixtures to look forward to that are arguably, the biggest local derbies in South African football.
Kaizer Chiefs will host their Soweto rivals Orlando Pirates in what is recognised as one of the world’s greatest derby clashes that draws a crowd as big as anything Real Madrid and Barcelona can muster.
It is a high-octane sport at its very best and will bring the whole country to a standstill at the 15h00 kick-off as they pause to see who will win their place in this year’s final on December 16.
