Maritzburg United to host Mamelodi Sundowns in Telkom Knockout Cup final

Maritzburg United will be the home side in the 2019 Telkom Knockout Cup final against Mamelodi Sundowns on December 14 in Durban.

The draw was conducted immediately after their 2-1 semi-final win over Kaizer Chiefs at Mbombela Stadium on Sunday.

Being the hosts come with several advantages, meaning the Team of Choice will get to choose the dressing rooms and their colours on the day among other things.

This will be Maritzburg United's first Telkom Knockout Cup final since their promotion to the elite league.

It will also mark Eric Tinkler's second as a coach in the last three years after reaching the final with Cape Town City in 2016.
