"So very, very happy for the club, for our chairman, who’s put so much into this club, him and his family," he said.

"I think it’s history that the club has made. It’s a fairy tale for everybody involved at the club."

The eight teams that went into draw also provided potential of a number of derbies with three teams coming from Limpopo, three from Gauteng and two from Kwazulu Natal.

A confident Tshakuma Tsha Madzivhandila were still on course to win the trophy they won last year albeit under different ownership, but Supersport United may prove to be a stumbling block for them this campaign.
