Carling Knockout, Carling Black Label Cup set to take SA by storm in 2023

Carling Knockout

The wait is over for South Africa’s most exciting football extragavanza, the Carling Knockout and Carling Cup competitions are here. These innovative competitions will ensure that the next four months of the football calendar are an exhilarating and engaging journey for all fans.

South Africa’s Champion Beer, Carling Black Label, in partnership with the Premier Soccer League (PSL), officially launched the first edition of Carling Knockout Cup competition-a partnership that will once again put the power in the hands of our champion fans.

Carling Black Label has always been a key supporter of South African football, taking fan engagement to a whole new level since the introduction of the Carling Black Label Cup in 2011. Since then, the brand has strived to ensure that the voices of those championing the beautiful game are heard and that they are included in the game with innovations that reward them.

2023 is not going to be any different with the inaugural Carling Knockout and new format of the Carling Cup kicking off.

All 16 teams in the topflight of South African football will participate, as they battle it out to get their hands on the Carling Knockout trophy, which will set precedence for the new Carling Black Label Cup set to be played 6 January 2024 at Peter Mokaba Stadium.

The winners of the Carling Knockout tournament will face a Carling All-Star team selected by the fans in the new format of the Carling Black Label Cup, a spectacle that will bring both players and champion fans of all the clubs together.

Carling Black Label will empower the voice of the fans like never before, giving them an opportunity to put together the Carling All-Star team with players from the other 15 Premier Division clubs, as well as the Diski Challenge sides. This affords fans a unique way to see their favourite stars playing together in one team.

Six of the players in the Carling All-Star team starting line-up will be from the Premiership clubs and five will be called up from the Diski Challenge sides.

The Carling All-Star team will be coached by one of the 15 PSL coaches which will also be voted for by the champion fans. Fantasy soccer becomes a reality with the Carling Cup.
One of the most exciting parts about the Carling Knockout and Carling Cup will be the Fak’ iGoal Uzobona innovation.

Loosely translated as Score a Goal & See the innovation is aimed at energising the game to produce earlier goals showcasing the very best of South African football flair.

At the start of each match there will be 90 minutes and R90 000 on the clock, for each minute that passes R1 000 drops off with the potential prize money counting down to zero at the end of the match.

One champion fan that correctly predicts both the team and the minute of the first goal will win the money left on the clock. But that isn’t all; the team scoring the goal will also win the amount on the clock. The earlier the goal the more everyone wins, Fak’ iGoal Uzobona
