Nedbank Cup is a South African club football (soccer) tournament. The knockout tournament, based on the English FA Cup format, carries a 'David versus Goliath' theme. The competition was sponsored by ABSA until 2007, after which Nedbank took over sponsorship.

Format[edit]

The 16 Premier Soccer League clubs, 8 National First Division teams, as well as 8 teams from the amateur ranks compete for the prize money of R6 million. The winner also qualifies for the CAF Confederation Cup.

The teams are not seeded at any stage, and the first 16 sides drawn out of the hat receive a home-ground advantage. There are no longer any replays in the tournament, and any games which end in a draw after 90 minutes are subject to 30 minutes extra time followed by penalties if necessary.

Teams Qualified for Second Round[edit]

Second Round (Round of 16)[edit]

Orlando Pirates have been handed a tricky tie in the Last 16 of the Nedbank Cup, but Kaizer Chiefs will back their chances against First Division side AmaTuks.

Bucs will travel to Bloemfontein to face PSL strugglers Bloemfontein Celtic, who will be counting on their incredible home support to see them past the high-flying Soweto side.

Chiefs have been paired with Pretoria University, while Mamelodi Sundowns face a tough task against Miguel Gamondi's Platinum Stars.

Peace Lovers, the last remaining Vodacom League side in the draw, have been rewarded for their win against Real Madrid with a home tie against Moroka Swallows.

The continued unavailability of venues due to preparations for the 2009 Fifa Confederations and 2010 World Cup is giving several clubs a king size headache just hours after the Nedbank Cup Last 16 draw.
