NELSPRUIT - Even though there are still a few games left before the final showdown, but all can attest to the fact that this tournament has lived up to expectations.


Even the organizers and sponsors of this biggest amateur soccer tourney in the province, had earlier pronounced their satisfaction at the way the tourney is being held and the support from local communities.


This year’s installment of this tournament hasn’t disappointed at all but just a continuation of the previous episodes, which saw big contenders being booted out making way for the so called underdogs, such as Ntunda Home Killers and Jeppees Reef Barcelona who came from nowhere to lift this lucrative trophy.


With the last 16 teams already pitted against each other, it would be interesting to see who will reach the top eight.


The game which is on everybody’s lips is the clash of the titans, Shongwe Chiefs against Mlambo Royal Club scheduled for Sunday, May 19 at the Driekoppies stadium.
This will in a way give Shongwe Chiefs an advantage since they are a Driekoppies based team with huge support behind them expected.


Mlambo who boasts skillful players also stands a good chance of turning the Driekoppies stadium into their advantage as it has been proven that there are no home or away games here.


The last 16 round begins next week Sunday, May 12. (see fixture below)
