The Zimbabwean winger says despite their away draw in the Telkom Knockout Challenge against his teammates will be well inspired for action after the Absa Premiership sides were pitted against one another on 16 October 2017.
Karuru said of the prospect of facing his former club: “It’s good for the club to get such a draw, especially for the younger players who are hungry for a challenge because there won’t be too much of a need for motivation,” said the 28-year-old attacker.
All last 16 matches have been earmarked to be played from 28 – 31 October. A full list of fixtures will be announced by the Premier Soccer League.
Cape Town City won last season’s final after beating Supersport United in a 2-1 affair at the Peter Mokaba Stadium.
According to sponsors this year’s competition is centred around rewarding the supporters for their passionate backing of their favourite clubs.
As the stakes get higher throughout the competition for participating clubs the fans will also on their own be in with a chance to reap rewards with a R500 000 in cash prize money up for grabs on the day of the final to one lucky fan.
There is also something reserved for the betterment of schools’ football. Organizers will give fans an opportunity to nominate schools that will benefit through football clinics, donation of playing kit and training equipment.Share
