When is the Orlando Pirates vs DC United Esports match and how can I watch?

The Fifa Esports international friendly between Orlando Pirates and DC United is just hours away from kick-off.

Muhammed Faiz Mahomed of the Buccaneers will take DC United professional gamer Mohamed Alioune Diop in what promises to be an exciting battle between the two former teammates.

Diop left Pirates for DC United no so long ago, ending his three-year relationship with the South African outfit.

His move to DC United saw him become the first player to be transferred by an African side to a professional league abroad.

He gets to face his former club for the first time since his departure, and the excitement is already building up for those who follow his game and knew him at Pirates.
