The Premier Soccer League (PSL) has announced the dates, times and venues for the 2017 MTN8.

Next Friday’s fixture will signal the start of the first official game of the 2017/18 football season.

MTN8 champions Bidvest Wits will kick off proceedings when they face Lamontville Golden Arrows at the Bidvest Stadium at 8pm.

Bidvest Wits won the trophy following that emphatic victory against Mamelodi Sundowns at Mbombela Stadium last year. This was the first time the ‘Clever Boys’ lifted the trophy.

On Saturday, August 12, there will be two fixtures: Cape Town City, who finished in the semis last year, will take on MTN8 newcomers Polokwane City at the Cape Town Stadium at 3pm.

At 8.15pm, Kaizer Chiefs will be at home against SuperSport United at Moses Mabhida Stadium in Durban.

On Sunday, August 13, there will be one fixture between last year’s runner-ups, Mamelodi Sundowns and Maritzburg United.

The League has also confirmed ticketing information for the MTN8 quarterfinals.

Ticket prices will vary from R40 to R60. Children under the age of 12 will pay R15.

All Tickets will once again be sold at TicketPro outlets.
