Orlando Pirates next match: Buccaneers fixtures for 2024/25 season

Looking to catch the Orlando Pirates' next game, or plan ahead for their upcoming fixtures? This article has you covered!

There's no doubt the Buccaneers had a triumphant season under Jose Riveiro's second year at the helm.

The club defended both MTN8 and Nedbank Cup, defeating the DStv Premiership’s powerhouse – Mamelodi Sundowns in both finals.

Their season, however, started with a bitter pill to swallow. A shock defeat to Botswana's Jwaneng Galaxy, coached by South African Morena Ramoreboli, saw them eliminated from the CAF Champions League early on. 

Determined to make amends, they secured a second-place finish in the league, earning them another shot at Champions League glory.


The Sea Robbers announced a week ago they would be heading back to Spain for a three-match tour in preparation for the upcoming busy campaign. 

Their pre-season adventure kicks off on July 12th at 8 pm with a clash against English Championship side Plymouth Argyle, currently managed by Manchester United legend Wayne Rooney.

Thereafter, they will travel to Seville to take on La Liga outfit Sevilla on 15 July (Kickoff time TBD).

Lastly, they lock horns with Qatar Stars League club Al Sadd SC on 19 July (Kickoff time TBD).

Additionally, reports suggest that Pirates have acquired Selaelo Rasebotja and Thuso Moleleki. They've also reportedly secured Thalente Mbatha on a permanent deal following his successful six-month loan spell.

They also bolstered the technical team with Devon O’Brien who’ll be serving as an analyst.

On the other hand, the club parted ways with Souaibou Marou, Fortune Makaringe, Richard Ofori, Siyabonga Mpontshane, Thabang Monare, Kermit Erasmus and Vincent Pule.
