Despite having five representatives in the Telkom Knockout Cup quarter-finals, no matches will be played in the Gauteng province this weekend

KwaZulu Natal football fans will be spoiled with no less than three Telkom Knockout Cup quarter-final matches live from Durban and Pietermatizrbug respectively this coming weekend.

This was after the Premier Soccer League (PSL) announced that Kaizer Chiefs will be playing their match against SuperSport United at the Moses Mabhida Stadium. 

Amakhosi were pitted as the home team during the quarter-final draw which took place in Durban last week. 

They were expected to take their encounter to the FNB Stadium, but for some unknown reasons, the club saw it fit to play this match in Durban. 

Chiefs and SuperSport United will battle for a place in the semi-finals on Sunday, November 4, 2018. Kickoff is at 15h00. 

But before their match, AmaZulu will play hosts to Orlando Pirates at the same venue on Saturday night. Kickoff for that match is at 18h00. 

AmaZulu will be the home side while Pirates will be the visiting team. 

The move may come as a surprise to Gauteng football fans as they have five teams left in the competition. 

The Buccaneers, Amakhosi, Sundowns, SuperSport as well as Bidvest Wits are all representing the Gauteng province in the tournament.

In the other match which will be played in KwaZulu Natal, Maritzburg United will be at the Harry Gwala Stadium for their match against the Students.

Lastly, Sundowns will be away to Baroka FC, and the match will take place at the Peter Mokaba Stadium on Saturday.
