Downs, Amazulu, Pirates and Chiefs to contest the 2010/2011 Telkom Charity

Cape Town

The Premier Soccer League announced the mouth-watering semi-final clash between Soweto giants Kaizer Chiefs and former PSL Champions Mamelodi Sundowns on Saturday, when unveiling the four top teams in the Telkom Charity Cup this year.

The four teams with the highest number of votes following the closure of telephone voting by the public automatically qualify for the Telkom Charity semi-finals.

When voting was closed on Sunday night, Sundowns led the rest of the pack with 191 384 votes, with surprise package Amazulu on second with 124 372 votes, followed by Pirates in 3rd place with  113 989, with Kaizer Chiefs taking up the 4th place after having polled 113 080 votes.

The PSL also announced, when making the draw at the Soccer City stadium on Tuesday, that the Telkom Charity is sold out. A record 90 000 tickets had been bought by the time voting lines were closed, making new ticket sales record.

In keeping with the setting of records, Kaizer Chiefs becomes the only PSL club to have been part of every Telkom charity cup since its inception in 1985. The Amakhosi will make a record 25th appearance at the PSL season opener this weekend.

All four clubs will parade new acquisitions over the weekend. The Charity Cup allows teams to field two new teams, especially if they qualify for the finals.

Mamelodi Sundowns have been the busiest club on the transfer market. They have already secured the trio of striker Nyasha Mushekwi, defender Method Mwanjali and defensive midfielder Lionel Mtizwa from CAPS United club of Zimbabwe.

Mushekwi in particular will prove a very useful squad addition, having been the Golden Boot winner in Zimbabwe last season. The striker was also the leading goal scorer in two CAF competitions, the Confederations Cup and the African Championship for Nations  (CHAN).

Pirates have acquired promising stars such as Clifford Ngobeni from Ajax Cape Town, Mark Mayambela and Patrick Malokase from Bloemfontein Celtic among other arrivals at the Buccaneers.  

Chiefs and Usuthu have not really raided the market as yet. Amazulu have acquired the services of former Lamontville Golden Arrows coach Mngoba Mnqithi. Chiefs' only big arrival so far is  Sthembiso Ngcobo, who was out-of-favour at Free State stars last season.

The jury is still out on whether Chiefs will be able to find a suitable replacement for the departed midfield-general Tinashe Nengomasha who has now moved to Qatar permanently.
