first_img“This year, with the exciting innovations introduced by the PSL and the new sponsor MTN, I feel that the competition will be fiercer than ever before, and I am certain that there are no favourites,” he said. FixturesIt kicks off on Friday 8 August at the Johannesburg Stadium, where Orlando Pirates will take on PSL champions SuperSport United. The Buccaneers have had ample opportunity to find their pre-season legs in the Vodacom Challenge and the Telkom Charity Cup, which they won at the weekend with a 1-0 win over Kaizer Chiefs. “The eight winners from each of the matches will then go through to the final, where they will compete for the ultimate prize, and to be crowned the ultimate MTN 8 Wafa Wafa fan.” The MTN 8 Knockout will feature South Africa’s top eight clubs doing battle for a lucrative R8-million winner-takes-all prize. The tournament’s catch phrase will be “Wafa Wafa!” which, roughly translated, means “last man standing”. Interestingly, the competition draw favoured all four Gauteng clubs in the competition with home games. “The most passionate fans at each match will be selected to take part in a half-time competition, with the crowd voting for the winner,” Verkade said. 5 August 2008 Another two quarterfinal clashes take place on Saturday 9 August, with Moroka Swallows facing Ajax Cape Town at Olympia Park and Kaizer Chiefs tackling Santos at Loftus Stadium. Chiefs, like Pirates, have enjoyed plenty of pre-season action and are, on the evidence so far presented, an improved outfit over last season. ‘Memorable matches’“Since the inception of the Top 8 in 1972, we have seen the birth of many legends and some truly memorable matches,” PSL chairman Irvin Khoza said in a statement. center_img The Premier Soccer League has announced another big windfall with MTN committing R400-million over five years to the sport. The cellular communications giant has also taken over the title sponsorship of the Top 8 knockout tournament. The prize money is significantly improved over last year’s figures, which saw Mamelodi Sundowns, as winners, taking home R1.3-million and runners-up Orlando Pirates pocketing R750 000. The format gives the clubs and players extra motivation to win, but each team will receive R800 000 simply for participating. The first leg of the semi-finals will be staged the following weekend, on 16 and 17 August, with the second leg fixtures scheduled for 23 and 24 August. World Peace Day, 21 September, will be the day of the final. ‘Ultimate football supporter’MTN spokesman Pieter Verkade urged fans of the top eight clubs to become involved in the competition. “Just like the teams, we encourage the fans to go all out and demonstrate their passion for the game and their club, to determine who the ultimate football supporter of the MTN 8 Wafa Wafa competition will be. “As the only African global sponsor of the 2010 Fifa World Cup South Africa, MTN has shown its passion for football,” Khoza said. The last of the quarterfinals sees Mamelodi Sundowns in action against Free State Stars at the Super Stadium on Saturday 10 August. The Brazilians will want to make amends for their early exit from the Telkom Charity Cup, and will also want to show that they are better than their fourth place in the 2007/08 PSL season.

first_imgBEIJING — Luis Scola was asked what Sunday will mean to him, and he didn’t hesitate with the answer.“Everything,” he said.The veteran Argentinian forward didn’t need to give more of an explanation. The World Cup is one win away, and Scola made sure his team would have a chance to hoist the trophy.Scola scored 28 points and grabbed 13 rebounds, sealing the deal with 3-pointers on consecutive possessions down the stretch, and Argentina beat France 80-66 on Friday in a World Cup semifinal. Argentina will play Spain in the gold-medal game on Sunday.Gabriel Deck scored 13 points and Facundo Campazzo added 12 for Argentina, a team with no active NBA players on its roster and still made its first gold-medal game in Olympic or World Cup play since the 2004 Athens Games. And when he made his way to the locker room, Scola was greeted by chants of “M-V-P” from teammates.He corrected them with a smile: “MBP,” he said. “Most Beautiful Player.”Indeed, on the court the 39-year-old’s game is still very much a thing of beauty. Showing no signs of fatigue, he played 34 of the 40 minutes and saved his best for the very end.“Luis told us before every game, including today, that we can win — that we are a tough, tough team to beat,” Argentina center Tayavek Gallizzi said. “Just focus on our game. It’s incredible. At his age he is playing better than all the younger guys.”Frank Ntilikina and Evan Fournier each scored 16 for France, which will play Australia for the bronze on Sunday. Nando De Colo scored 11 for France, a team that looked nothing like the one that topped the U.S. in the quarterfinals on Wednesday.Rudy Gobert, who led France in that win over the Americans, scored only three points against Argentina.“From the first to the last minute, it was complete domination,” Gobert said, tipping his cap to Argentina.Rudy Gobert of France dunks the ball during their semifinal match against Argentina in the FIBA Basketball World Cup at the Cadillac Arena in Beijing, Friday, Sept. 13, 2019. (AP Photo/Mark Schiefelbein)Both semifinal winners got two days off after their quarterfinal victories. Australia and France both played their quarterfinals on Wednesday, and France coach Vincent Collet said he thought that was a factor.“I didn’t want to find any excuse, but I think so,” said Collet, who cancelled practice Thursday because of his team’s travel demands. “For me, it’s not fair that one team has two days to recover and prepare even if they don’t know the first day who will be the opponent. They know it’ll be one or the other, so they can prepare for both.”Argentina put together an early 10-0 run to take the lead, and kept it the rest of the way. A 15-point lead got cut to single digits for much of the fourth, when Scola’s back-to-back 3s clinched the outcome.“It was a great game for us,” Campazzo said.TIP-INSFrance: The French still have a chance to match their best World Cup finish, third in 2014 … Vincent Poirier took a hard fall under the Argentina basket while fighting for a rebound late in the third quarter. He was able to get to the bench a few moments later. … France fell to 1-5 against Argentina in major tournaments.Argentina: Manu Ginobili, the longtime San Antonio standout and the leading Argentina-born scorer in NBA history, was courtside watching his national team. Fellow retired NBA stars Kobe Bryant and Chris Bosh were also courtside. … It took Scola only 16:45 of playing time to get a double-double; he grabbed his 10th rebound with 21 seconds left in the half and already had 13 points.REVENGEArgentina scored a bit of World Cup comeuppance.
