Bloemfontein Celtic are almost certain to take part in the yearly Telkom Charity Cup, after the withdrawal of Mamelodi Sundowns from this one-day soccer spectacular.

Sundowns will be playing against CS Sfaxien of Tunisia the same weekend this event will be played in Mmabatho.

The PSL's chief executive, Trevor Phillips, said it was unfortunate that Sundowns, who have collectedmore than 88000 votes, will not be eligible to play in this competition because of their CAF obligation.

"It is with deep regret that the league had to take this drastic step," said Phillips. "We realise that the loyal supporters of Sundowns who have cast these votes for the club must be devastated."

He said the team with the fifth highest number of votes will automatically qualify for the competition. Celtic are fifth on the voting chart but the final four will be announced on Monday.

Votes as at 4.30pm yesterday: Platinum Stars 161 090; Sundowns 88218, Kaizer Chiefs 76742; Orlando Pirates 74421 and Celtic 51372.
