Pirates confirm new sponsor

Soweto giants Orlando Pirates have announced the signing of a sponsorship deal with Ford South Africa.

The club confirmed the news on their Twitter account:

"Orlando Pirates is proud to announce our new partnership with @FordSouthAfrica. We look forward to the journey!"

The arrival of head coach Milutin 'Micho' Sredojevic at the club has seen the Buccaneers make a strong start to the season - after six matches they are on 11 points, in third spot and just one point off the summit.

Pirates are next in action when they take on Polokwane City at the Peter Mokaba Stadium on Saturday.
