Kaizer Chiefs will play their final pre-season friendly against Cape Town City in the inaugural Mpumalanga Cultural Experience Cup this coming weekend. 

Amakhosi have already been involved in two pre-season tournaments - the Maize Cup and Shell Helix Ultra Cup. 

They have won the Maize Cup and lost the Shell Helix Ultra Cup to Mamelodi Sundowns

Chiefs have already paraded their new signings in the two tournaments, but their fans are eagerly waiting to see coach Giovanni Solinas on the bench before the start of the campaign. 

The Soweto giants are still working on acquiring a work permit for the Italian mentor, and it is for that reason Patrick Mabedi has been in charge of the first team together with Arthur Zwane.

Mabedi admitted after the Sundowns match that there are still a few things that the technical team has to work on to ensure Chiefs' readiness for the new season, and this tournament will no doubt afford them the chance to rectify their mistakes. 

Cape Town City on the hand, have been playing pre-season friendlies behind closed doors with their recent being a match against Orlando Pirates at the Cape Town City this past weekend.  

The two sides made several key signings, and it will be up to their respective coaches to give them a run on the day. 

The one-day event was launched in Sandton on Monday, with the Glamour Boys confirming their participation alongside fellow PSL side City. 

Local sides, Mbombela United and Spear of the Nation will also form part of the tournament, although they will face each other in what has been classified as a curtain raiser for the Chiefs vs City match. 

Spear of the Nation replace TS Galaxy, who pulled out of the tournament despite initially confirming their participation.
