    The Premier Soccer League has released the official Absa Premiership fixtures for the upcoming 2017-18 season, with SuperSport United set to face Mamelodi Sundowns on the opening weekend.

    Reigning league champions Bidvest Wits kickstart the new campaign with a mouthwatering clash against Cape Town City at the Bidvest Stadium on August 18, with kick-off at 20:00.

    Eric Tinkler is set for a baptism of fire when he faces Mamelodi Sundowns in his first official league game as coach of Supersport United on August 19th, with kick-off scheduled for 15:00.

    Orlando Pirates will look to put the disappointment of last season’s dismal campaign behind them when they face Chippa United later that evening.
