Every Soweto Derby is a momentous occasion, but this Saturday’s match is extra special: marking 50 years since the first Soweto Derby.

Pirates have largely dominated Chiefs since 2014, but now it is Chiefs who top the log, with Orlando Pirates pushing hard in third. The two teams face off on Saturday, February 29 at 3.30pm; match build-up starts at 2pm.
