The recent unpredictable weather will have fans worried as a series of Orange FA Cup games are lined up for the next three days. From dusty grounds to stadium turfs across the country, 32 teams will battle it out for the 16 spots in the country's premier knock-out competition.

The competition has historically dished good memories, including moments where big teams choked in sight of glory whilst the lower league teams claimed the giant slayer status. The round of 32 will bring some bit of thrill, as the elite league sides make their bow in this season’s edition. This round will serve some exciting ties.

The question now is, will the giants get slayed or will they stamp their authority over the minnows? It all begins this evening at the Serowe Sports Complex where Premier League side, Sua Flamingoes, visit second-tier team Tsabotlhe in their backyard. The pair have met a couple of times in the First Division with the visitors coming into the evening tie with a better record over their opponents, something Tsabotlhe would look to change.
