Derby weekend around the world

Kaizer Chiefs

In South Africa, brothers-turned-enemies, Kaizer Chiefs and Orlando Pirates, clash in the Soweto Derby.

Across the South African border, it is the battle of Zimbabwe: Highlanders against Dynamos.

In Spain, it is El Clasico, Barcelona against Real Madrid, a football match that extends beyond the pitch and is mired in the country’s complex political ideologies.

The Tyne-Wear Derby, Newcastle United against Sunderland, may not be England’s most prominent football rivalry but it is one of the oldest – dating back to the English Civil War in the 1600s.

The Revierderby, Schalke against Borussia Dortmund, on the other hand, is Germany’s most prominent and biggest match.

Most of these match-ups are constants in the many “greatest derbies of the world” lists compiled over the years.
