How the Telkom Knockout Draw Works

The Telkom Knockout draw was conducted last week for all 16 teams that participate in the 2019-20 Absa Premiership. According to the PSL, three bowls were used for the TKO draw. The bowls were labelled Pot A, B, C; with the first bowl featuring the top-seeded teams that finished inside the top eight in the 2018-19 PSL season. The second bowl contained the names of the teams that finished in the last half of the PSL table. The last bowl was used to determine which team plays home and away.

The PSL drew a ball from Pot A and without opening it, placed it in an empty Pot B bowl. Teams in the Pot C were placed in the same empty bowl without being opened and then placed into Pot B. The teams drawn first would get a home advantage while the second would mean that the team will play away.
