The 2017 edition of the Carling Black Label Champion Cup featuring Soweto giants Kaizer Chiefs and Orlando Pirates has proven to be quite a popular event on the football calendar.

Tickets are officially sold out - a few days ahead of the much-anticipated showpiece on 29 July 2017.

Meanwhile, supporters from Namibia, Zimbabwe, Lesotho as well as Swaziland can now vote which is also free. Chiefs won last year's Cup after beating Pirates 2-0 thanks to two goals from Eric Mathoho and Lewis Macha.

Amakhosi defender Ramahlwe Mphahlele has fired a warning to Pirates ahead of this year's clash.

"We will repeat what we did last year. If I had a choice I would vote for Rama. Players who are not chosen should not be disappointed," Mphahlele told the media at the launch.

The fans can still vote by SMS and internet and voting has been opened for the preseason game with a format where fans select the line-ups and the formations.

The overwhelming reaction by South African football fans, for the past six years, shows that this is an extraordinary derby that distinguishes itself from others as it gives them the privilege to Be the Champion Coach by influencing the starting line-up. 

This year, the fan experience was further enhanced by allowing fans to also select their preferred formation. Carling Black Label Brand Director, Samori Gambrah expressed his delight at the response: “This is another milestone for us at Carling Black Label.

"It speaks volumes about the initiative and demonstrates that the fans are hungry for football action during the recess. The Carling Black Label Champion Cup comes at the right time whereby fans are anxious to see their new signees in action and also witness their team’s pre-season preparations.

“We knew that partnering with the two teams in this campaign will transcend football. I cannot think of a better way to preview the upcoming season other than with a classic encounter between Kaizer Chiefs and their arch rivals Orlando Pirates in a stadium packed to capacity.

Although tickets are sold out, fans still have an opportunity to influence the outcome of the day and the starting line-up, through the power of selection in their hands.

Consumers can do this by purchasing a Carling Black Label beer and dialling *120*660*. And then enter their unique code found on the underside of the bottle cap and the # sign [with no spaces in between], and they can then choose the formation and change their starting line-up.

Voting is Free and will be closed at midnight on 25 July 2017.

Carling Black Label Champion Cup offers a unique opportunity whereby two lucky fans stand a chance to experience their team in training, sit in the pre-match briefing and be part of the dug-out with their favourite team. This is a once in a lifetime experience for adult consumers. - Online Sources
