Orlando Pirates

Nickname:
The Buccaneers
Founded:
1937

Orlando Pirates secured their place in the 2016 MTN8 by finishing seventh on the 2015/16 league table – a disappointing showing from the Soweto giants and one which ultimately cost coach Eric Tinkler his job.

The Buccaneers have brought in Muhsin Ertugral to replace him, a man who has a good record when it comes to cup competitions and has twice won the Top Eight Cup: 2001 and 2008, both while in charge of Pirates’ arch rivals Kaizer Chiefs.

Bucs’ MTN8 campaign in 2015 lasted just one game, as they went down 1-0 at home to Ajax Cape Town in the quarterfinals.

Pirates are the second most successful side in Top Eight Cup history, claiming the title nine times (1972, 1974, 1978, 1983, 1993, 1996, 2000, 2010, 2011) – this is bettered only by Kaizer Chiefs, who have 15 Top Eight crowns to their name.
