Amakhosi defender Ramahlwe Mphahlele has fired a warning to Pirates ahead of this year's clash.
"We will repeat what we did last year. If I had a choice I would vote for Rama. Players who are not chosen should not be disappointed," Mphahlele told the media at the launch.
The fans can still vote by SMS and internet and voting has been opened for the preseason game with a format where fans select the line-ups and the formations.
