Chiefs, Bucs fans vote for change

Kaizer Chiefs and Orlando Pirates supporters are currently leaning in favour of one option as the newly-introduced 'Game Changer' for the Carling Black Label Cup.

The annual spectacle which pits the two Soweto giants together in a pre-season clash is set to introduce a new innovation upon its return, after being called off for the 2018 FIFA World Cup last year.

Chiefs and Pirates supporters have been given the powers to select a new 'Game Changer' that could impact the match in a very different way, as Carling looks to give supporters even more control.
