Kaizer Chiefsâ€™ Telkom Knockout semifinal against Maritzburg United at Mbombela Stadium on Sunday could be headed for a selloutâ€š with 22â€š000 of the 38â€š000 tickets available to the public sold by Thursday morning.
This leaves 16â€š000 tickets available for the TKO semiâ€š where Chiefs will aim to reach a cup final and challenge for a trophy having gone an unprecedented four seasons without silverware.
Remarkablyâ€š this could be the fourth weekend of domestic action in succession where a match involving Chiefs has been sold out.
The previous three were Chiefs against Mamelodi Sundowns at Loftus Versfeldâ€š then the successive Soweto derbies where Chiefs beat Pirates on penalties in the TKO quartersâ€š and then 3-2 in the Absa Premiership the following weekend.
Amakhosi reached the semifinals beating Cape Town City away on penalties in the last-16â€š then Pirates in the quarters.
Maritzburg beat Bidvest Wits on penalties in the opening round and Highlands Park on penalties in the quartersâ€š both games at their Harry Gwala Stadium home base.
Saturdayâ€™s semifinal is between Lamontville Golden Arrows and Mamelodi Sundowns at Sugar Ray Xulu Stadium in Clermontâ€š Durban.
Both semis kick off at 3pm.
