It was yet another embarrassing defeat for Amakhosi – this time 1-0 – against a side who are currently bottom of the DStv Premiership standings!

Incredibly, it’s the second season is a row that Kaizer Chiefs have stumbled at the first hurdle after they were sent packing 2-1 by Richards Bay in 2020/21.

Stuart Baxter’s men picked up a miserable R100 000 for their loss – which is the same pay day as the other 15 sides who were eliminated in the Round of 32.

The losing semi-finalists will be R1 million richer while the eventual runners-up will take home R2.5 million.
