Champion coaches of Soweto giants Kaizer Chiefs and Orlando Pirates face an intriguing off-season as their clubs prepare to start afresh with the additions of new players ahead of the 2016 Carling Black Label Champion Cup at FNB Stadium on July 30.
The match, which is the highlight of the South African pre-season, will likely provide fans with a first glimpse of the new players to don their famous jerseys and will come after supporters have been starved of live action for some two months.
The Carling Black Label Champion Cup is a fixture that captures the imagination of fans by putting the power of team selection into their hands. Once again this year, supporters are still afforded the opportunity to keep shaping their starting line-up.
Itumeleng Khune and Tendai Ndoro are leading the votes for the line-ups so far.
