Jomo Cosmos have been drawn to face Baroka FC in a Round of 32 fixture of the money-spinning Nedbank Cup.

In an impressive draw ceremony held at the Nedbank auditorium in Sandton, north of Johannesburg on Thursday night, fixtures revealed that Ezenkosi will lock horns with the newly-crowned Telkom Knockout Champions.

To reach this stage of the competition, Cosmos dispatched Real Kings 2-0, but now have their work cut out against Premier League opposition.

In other interesting pairings, Chippa United play hosts to Mamelodi Sundowns, while Orlando Pirates travel to Black Leopards.

The final spots for the round of 32 were completed over the past two weeks, with eight National First Division sides and eight SAFA amateur teams joining the 16 Absa Premiership sides.

Free State Stars are the reigning champions after they defeated Maritzburg United in last season’s final at the Cape Town Stadium.

One of the exciting ties in the round will see Cape Town City host former champions SuperSport United, who are looking for their third title in four seasons.

The dates and times will be confirmed by the Premier Soccer League in due course.
