In which year did the Nedbank cup start?

You can compare the Nedbank Cup to the English FA Cup. The tournament started in 1971 but now it was not called the Nedbank cup tournament by that time. The tournament was called a life challenge cup until 1975 , it then changed the name to Benson and Hedges Trophy from 1976 to 1977.

The story did not end there because in 1978 to 1987 it was called Mainstay Cup and when FNB came into the picture then the name changed again to the Bob Save Super Bowl. In most cases whoever sponsors the tournament he or she gives the name to the tournament. But this time The First National Bank did not name the tournament FNB cup 1988 even though they were the main sponsors.

Look how some companies do things, now ABSA came in between 2003 and 2007 and named the tournament The ABSA Cup. In 2008 Nedbank started sponsoring the tournament then it named it Nedbank Cup until now they are still the main sponsors of the tournament.

PSL chairman Dr Irvin Khoza said: “We’ve done everything humanly possible to make sure that when we get back to work, we have done all the testing.”
