Team of Choice to face Amakhosi in TKO first round
6 October 2016
Maritzburg United have been handed a tough yet exciting fixture in the 2016T elkom Knockout opening round after they were drawn to play Kaizer Chiefs away from home.
The match will give the Team of Choice the chance to avenge their 2-0 league loss to Kaizer Chiefs just a couple of weeks ago in Johannesburg.
Chiefs also beat United 5-3 in last season’s MTN8 competition, so no doubt that coach Ernst Middendorp and his men will be doing everything possible to turn the tables on the Soweto giants, last season’s losing TKO finalist.
The full fixtures are as follows. Home teams listed first. The dates, times and venues will be announced at a later stage, but the games will take place on October 19, 22 and 23.
