Kaizer Chiefs and Orlando Pirates will lock horns once again in an epic battle when they meet for the 2017 Carling Black Label Champion Cup at FNB Stadium on Saturday afternoon.

The annual pre-season tournament signals the start of the 2017/18 campaign as the two biggest clubs in the country meet for the seventh time in this unique fixture.
What makes it so special is the fact that the fans of both teams have picked the starting XI for their respective sides by casting votes via SMS for the past month.
The fans can further influence the game on matchday by forcing a substitution. Again this is done on the day of the game by voting via SMS for the player they would like to introduce after the 55th minute.
