The Nedbank Cup is the current name of South Africa’s most famous knockout tournament. While many formats have been used over the years, the tournament has always been based on the idea of giving lower league and amateur teams a chance to compete with clubs from the top league for the cup. The tournament is based on the English FA Cup, which has become known for “giant killings” (lower league clubs defeating a top-flight club). Source wikipedia

Wikipedia tells us that
The current format sees the 16 Premier Soccer League clubs, eight National First Division teams, as well as eight teams from the amateur ranks enter the main draw of 32 teams. The PSL teams enter the main draw automatically, while the NFD clubs need to play a single qualifier against other NFD clubs. The amateur teams go through a series of qualifiers to enter the main draw.
From the round of 32 onwards, teams are not seeded, and the first sides drawn receive home-ground advantage. There are no longer any replays in the tournament, and any games which end in a draw after 90 minutes are subject to 30 minutes extra time followed by penalties if necessary.
