Nedbank Cup 2024 Draw Outcomes
Ke Yona Ya Rona - Fans stand a chance to win a share of R5 million
The Premier Soccer League (PSL) and proud sponsor, Nedbank, have officially launched the 2024 Nedbank Cup, marking its 17th year as South Africa's premier knockout tournament. This comes on the heels of Orlando Pirates clinching the 2023 title at Loftus Versfeld Stadium.
The round-of-32 draw unfolded at the Nedbank headquarters in Sandton, Johannesburg. The draw showcased a dynamic mix of 32 lower-tiered and professional teams poised to compete in the first round of the tournament.
Throughout its illustrious 17-year history, the Nedbank Cup continues to play a pivotal role in shaping football in South Africa, providing a unique platform for aspiring professional footballers to challenge their top-tier counterparts. Noteworthy moments include victories by former National First Division sides such as TS Galaxy FC and Tshakhuma Tsha Madzivhandila (TTM), who secured the Nedbank Cup title and earned the chance to compete in the CAF Confederations Cup.
The 2024 Nedbank Cup launch went above and beyond, solidifying its dedication to the fans, stokvels and small businesses under the banner of Ke Yona, Ya Rona. As the 2024 Nedbank Cup prepares to unfold, Nedbank invites football stakeholders across the nation to join the journey, celebrate the spirit of Ke Yona, Ya Rona and embrace the magic that makes this tournament truly unique.
In a ground-breaking move, Nedbank introduced an unprecedented incentive for fans to be part of the glory. For the first time, supporters have the chance to win a cash prize of R5 million and other weekly prizes if their team clinches the Nedbank Cup title.
“The Nedbank Cup is more than just the on-the-field action; it's about the empowerment, emotions, and connections that football creates. In the spirit of Ke Yona, Ya Rona, we are set on raising our commitment to bringing fans, stokvels and small businesses closer to the heart of the tournament, celebrating the diverse and vibrant football culture in South Africa and ensuring that stakeholders are an integral part of something truly special. Small businesses will become the “Sponsored Sponsors” of the Nedbank Cup, through an initiative that offers small businesses invaluable brand exposure worth millions,” says Khensani Nobanda, Nedbank’s Group Executive for Marketing and Corporate Affairs.
'Ke Yona Ya Rona' goes beyond traditional soccer tournaments, emphasizing the impact of supporting both your team and financial goals. Fans, stokvels, and small businesses are urged to actively engage in the competition, making it an event owned by the people.
Nobanda also emphasized that in order for fans to stand a chance to win their share of R5 million, if your team emerges as the 2024 Nedbank Cup champions, it is essential to open or transact on your existing Nedbank MiGoals Plus Account as well as participate in weekly fan competitions.
