The two teams who will compete in the Nedbank Cup final set to take place at the iconic Loftus Versfeld Stadium have been confirmed: Orlando Pirates will play host to Sekhukhune United.
The draw to decide which team will take the home change room at Loftus Versfeld took place after the conclusion of the semi-final fixture between Stellenbosch FC and Sekhukhune United on Sunday night, 7 May 2023.
Orlando Pirates was the first team to progress to the final after Jose Riveiro’s men claimed a 2-1 win over Kaizer Chiefs in extra time at the sold-out Soweto Derby encounter.
In the second semi-final, Stellenbosch FC and Sekhukhune United played out to a goalless draw after 120 minutes. It was Sekhukhune United who advanced to the final of South Africa’s leading knockout football competition, winning 4-3 in the penalty shootout.
Khensani Nobanda, Group Executive of Marketing and Corporate Affairs at Nedbank, says: “We have been spoiled with some exceptional knockout football throughout this Nedbank Cup season. Not only is this cup competition the most entertaining, but it also truly demonstrates how a small decision can have a major impact on our lives both on and off the field of play.
“We look forward to crowning the 16th Nedbank Cup champions on 27 May 2023 at what we anticipate will be another thrilling affair at Loftus Versfeld Stadium.”
Ticketing and entertainment information on the Nedbank Cup final will be shared in due course.
