Phakaaathi Reporter

The Nedbank Cup semi-final fixture date, venues, and kick-off times have been confirmed by the Premier Soccer League.

Both semi-final fixtures will be played on Saturday, April 20.

Golden Arrows and TS Galaxy will kick-off proceedings on Saturday afternoon when they square off at the Sugar Ray Xulu Stadium in Clermont, Durban at 3pm.

TS Galaxy will be making the debut appearance in the Nedbank Cup semis and will be aiming to become only the third ever National First Division side to reach the final after MP Black Aces (2008) and Black Leopards (2011). They face an Arrows side also looking to reach their first ever Nedbank Cup Final having come very close to achieving this feat in 2017 when they narrowly lost to Orlando Pirates in the semis.

Later in the evening, Chippa United and Kaizer Chiefs will lock horns at the Nelson Mandela Bay stadium in the second semi-final at 8.15pm.

The hosts will be making their second Nedbank Cup semi-final appearance in three years and will be aiming to go one better by reaching their first ever final. Chiefs, on the other hand, will be looking to reach their first Nedbank Cup final since lifting the trophy back in 2013.
