Rivals Kaizer Chiefs and Orlando Pirates have secured home draws for the 2023 Nedbank Cup last 16 draw. Both clubs were paired with Motsepe Foundation Championship teams. 

The draw was conducted by the PSL on Wednesday evening at the SuperSport studios in Randburg. 

Only 16 teams remain in the tournament, following the opening round that took place over the past week. 11 top flight teams made the cut for the next stage of the competition alongside five sides from the lower leagues.

The Round of 16 fixtures are scheduled for mid-March.


Pirates will be at home to Venda Football Academy who are in their second season in the PSL. The two sides will be meeting for the first time, with Venda eyeing a big scalp as they lock horns with the Soweto Giants. Pirates will take another step in their bid for a ninth Nedbank Cup title and their second piece of silverware in the ongoing season.

This will be a third match for VFA in the competition. They defeated Hungry Lions away from home in the preliminary round before edging past FC Black Cross in the Round of 32.

Kaizer Chiefs will host Casric Stars while Mamelodi Sundowns will travel to Rustenburg to face Marumo Gallants in a repeat of last year’s final.
