No reason was given for the change of venue, while the fixture will kick off at 3pm.

The Royal Bafokeng Stadium, a venue used during the 2010 FIFA World Cup and 2009 FIFA Confederations Cup, hosted the last Nedbank Cup final back in May.

Mamelodi Sundowns completed a second Treble in three seasons by defeating Gallants 2-1. Goals that day came via Peter Shalulile, Sede Junior Dion and Thapelo Morena, who struck a last-gasp extra-time winner for the Brazilians.
